- Allexhibits should be disposed of one (1) year after the release of results;
- The decision to dispose of exhibits one year after the release of results should be publicized using the Council’s website, social media, paid advertisements, schools and direct contact with candidates;
- Appeals against NEC decisions should be received from affected schools/candidates within one (1) year from the date of the release of results of the examination;
- Appeals against decisions taken years ago should cease after one (1) year from this decision taken at the 71st Meeting of NEC;
- All exhibits in storage in the Council should be properly disposed of at the expiration of a period of one (1) year from the date of the decision of this Committee if there are no pending litigations that would require them.
So, all case filed must be done within a year of released results as the exhibit will be disposed of after this period.
