1.4m Candidates For 2015 JAMB.
« on: Jan 15, 2015 »
+1
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation
Board (JAMB) on Wednesday said that no
fewer than 1.4 million candidates nationwide
would write the 2015 All Computer Base Test
(CBT) on March 4.
Mr Fabian Benjamin, JAMB Public Relations
Officer, told the News Agency of Nigeria
(NAN) in Lagos that the board would be
migrating all to computer-based mode of
examination for the first time.
The Registrar, Prof. Dibu Ojerinde, had in the
last few years, sensitised secondary schools
students on the computer-base mode of test
effective from 2015.
NAN reports that prior to this time,
candidates have been writing either of the
CBT as the Paper Pencil Test (PPT) or the
Dual Based Test (DBT) mode of the Unified
Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
According to Benjamin, JAMB is impressed
with the number of candidates that have
registered for the March examination.
“I want to say that we are expecting no fewer
than 1.4 million candidates that will be
attempting the examination in all computer-
based mode of examination, commencing
from this year.
“We are also happy to announce that we also
have enough centres that will match the
number of candidates that will be writing the
examination.
“We have gone round to all the centres to
assess the level of preparedness of the
centres we intend to use for the examination
and that they have all met the standard.
“I can assure that JAMB is fully ready for
take-off of the examination as all logistics to
ensure a successful outcome of the
examination are fully on ground.
“We urge candidates to be fully prepared,
avail themselves of the opportunity of
practising with the computer on their own.
“There is nothing strange about writing the
examination through this mode and their
normal telephone usage,” Benjamin said.
He urged public spirited individuals and
corporate organisations to invest in CBT by
way of building and equipping more centres.
The JAMB spokesman said that the West
African Examinations Council (WAEC), the
National Examinations Council (NECO) and
other examination bodies would soon be
migrating to the computer-based
examination mode soon.
“There is no going back on the issue of CBT
for examination as a body, so we are
optimistic that soon this will apply to other
sister examination bodies.
“One thing we are currently excited about on
our own as a board is that currently, we have
commenced exporting the CBT technology
for examination to other parts of the world.
“Recently, we were in Ghana where we
educated them on the conduct of the CBT
mode of our examination.
“The registrar had also visited other African
countries and Europe to educate them on the
conduct and success of this mode of
examination and I think this is quite
laudable,” Benjamin said. (NAN)

Good luck to all students preparing for JAMB March, 2015 exam.
Probably, the CBT "Computer Based Test" will reduce cheating and enhance performance of serious students...

The CBT is a nice step forward but in my opinion the implementation so far has been poor and I believe that it is going to be very challenging for JAMB and for many of the intending candidates (especially those in the rural areas). But good luck to them, no pain, no gain.
Leave it for God, don't worry yourself. Leave it for God, don't cry no more.
