The National Business and Technical Examinations Board (NABTEB) has published the results of the 2023 NBC/NTC examinations held nationwide from Monday, June 26 to Tuesday, July 25, 2023.

Prof. Ifeoma Isiugo-Abanihe, the Registrar/Chief Executive of NABTEB, who announced the release of the results, revealed that out of the total candidates who participated in the 2023 in-school NBC/NTC exams, 39,220 candidates, equivalent to 73.19%, achieved five credits or more, including English Language and Mathematics.

Furthermore, she stated that a total of 49,529 candidates secured five credits or more, either with or without English Language and Mathematics.

Prof. Isiugo-Abanihe elaborated that this figure represented 92.43% of the candidates who took the exams, emphasizing that this performance surpassed the 2022 in-school NBC/NTC examination results, where 58,679 candidates, accounting for 69.73%, obtained five credits or more, including English Language and Mathematics.

Additionally, she mentioned that 74,346 candidates, constituting 88.35% of the candidates who participated in the examinations, attained five credits or more, with or without English Language and Mathematics.

According to her,

An analysis of the 2023 NBC/NTC examinations conducted by NABTEB reveals that candidates were registered for various categories, including 16 Engineering Trades, seven Construction Trades, nine Miscellaneous Trades, four Business Trades, and 17 General Education subjects.

Furthermore, the Registrar observed that out of the total enrollment of 53,587 candidates who participated in the certificate examinations, 13,699 candidates, amounting to 51.93%, received certification as craftsmen.

This was in contrast to the 64.41% figure from the 2022 In-School NBC/NTC examinations, which demonstrated a decrease in the certification rate.
