The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Thursday said its adoption of Computer Based Test (CBT) was to stem the menace of examination malpractice.

The Kaduna State Coordinator of JAMB, Mr Matthew Audu said this in Kaduna at a one-day advocacy and sensitisation campaign on the the use of CBT during Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), NaijaSharpNews has gathered.

Audu said the e-testing method would also facilitate faster release of examination results thereby cutting down on the time “candidates wait anxiously for results”.

He said the computer testing would release a candidate’s score immediately after the completion and submission of answers.

NaijaSharpNews sources quote him as saying-

“By 2015, no candidate will be allowed to write UTME through the traditional paper pencil method; it will strictly be computer based test.”

The Coordinator, therefore, advised schools to ensure that their students were properly trained on the use of computer, to be able to write the UTME without stress.

100 students from 10 schools wrote a mock UTME during the sensitisation campaign, to enable them become familiar with the new method of examination.

One of the students, Oluchi Okoli from FGC, Kaduna said the new system was more accurate and would eliminate cheating during examinations.

Also, Favour Jonathan from Dambo International School described the e-testing as “transparent”
