On Wednesday, March 4, 2015, about 1.4 million candidates nationwide would write the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) 2015 ‘Computer Based Test (CBT).
According to JAMB’s Public Relations Officer, Fabian Benjamin, the board would be fully migrating to the computer-based mode of examination for the first time.
Before this time, candidates had been writing either the CBT as the Paper Pencil Test (PPT) or the Dual Based Test (DBT) mode of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
Benjamin said: “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. We have gone round the centres to assess the level of preparedness. I can assure that JAMB is fully ready for take-off of the examination as all logistics to ensure a successful exercise are in place.”
Benjamin urged candidates to be fully prepared and avail themselves of the opportunity of practising with the computer on their own.
