According to the Registrar, 29,342 applicants received 5 credit passes or higher in English and Mathematics, while 37,991 candidates received 5 credit passes or higher in any subject.
According to Wushishi, the number of candidates “Booked” for various sorts of malpractices has decreased, with 4,454 cases recorded in 2019 compared to 6,465 in 2020.
He revealed that efforts are being made to reposition the council for optimal performance, which will result in some restructuring activities such as the extension and upgrading of the council’s zonal and state offices, as well as staff transfers and deployment to other offices.
According to the registrar, the action is being taken to address issues of overcrowding in some offices as a result of a severe lack of office space and a staffing shortfall, as well as other issues.
