The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is collaborating with the Caleb University to intensify awareness in secondary schools on the benefits of the Computer-Based Test (CBT). According to Alhaji Kamaldeen Oladeji, the Coordinator of the board in Lagos, the awareness campaign would be carried out in February. He added that the collaboration would make students embrace the new mode of test.
Oladeji also added that the collaboration would prepare students for full migration to CBT for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) in 2015.
“We want to crave the indulgence of some professionals such as computer experts and educationists to contribute their quota by building the human capacity that will sustain equipment for learning as well as train children. I also want to appeal to journalists to find out from education evaluation bodies such as WAEC, NECO and NABTEB their plans to migrate to e-testing,” he said.
