Dear students, teachers, parents and other stake holders,
Owing to the need to address the fear of a possible leakage of the exam paper and to ensure that only genuine hardworking candidates actually qualify for the second(final) stage of the 17th ANMC, the organizers are staging the intermediate round of the competition for all candidates  who score 80% and above in the first stage. We have decided to organize this additional examination due to our concerns about the examination safety.

Pupils who qualified for this stage are already identified and are being contacted ahead of the round. Except in Lagos wherein there would be two centres for this round, all other states affected have a centre each.
