    apprantly neco result is fair but in some places not in my state.although out of 100 percent i can really said that 25 percent got english language and no mathematics,then what reason is there to say that neco is good,but i thank god because in my waec exam i got 4 god credit which includes mathematics and no english language and in my neco exam 2 credit was given to me which include english language and ecnomics,so i reallx praise to thee, the lord of the heaven and the earth.
