No going back from Computer Based Test – JAMB
By Dayo Adesulu
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB Thursday refuted the publication that it has cancelled the Computer Based Testing, CBT, adding that the introduction of 8 keys was to enable candidates who are not computer literate answer examination questions effortlessly.
The Director of Information, JAMB, Dr Fabian Benjamin who spoke with Vanguard said:”There is no going back from the Computer Based Testing, CBT.”
According to him, the clarification became necessary following the misleading caption in the front page of yesterday ‘s Nation Newspaper that “JAMB dumps CBT, adopt eight keys”
He said: ” The headline was not only misleading but capable of causing panic, distortion and confusion in the minds of Nigerians particularly the candidates planing to take the UTME examination of a well conceived CBT examination which the Board was consolidating on the gains and feat recorded.”
