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).
This was made know to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) by JAMB Public Relations Officer, Mr Fabian Benjamin in Lagos.
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).
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.
“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.
