Registrar of JAMB, Professor Dibu Ojerinde has said that the proposed method for conducting the examination is aimed at checking malpractice, eliminating cases of incomplete results and above all, to release results within 30 minutes after the examination.
The proposed method, according to him is for the candidates to write the examination on-line from 2013.
Professor Dibu Ojerinde disclosed this in Kaduna yesterday when he led his management team and staff of the board on an advocacy visit over the proposed Computer Based Test (CBT) to Kaduna State.
According to the JAMB registrar, who led the advocacy visit to Kaduna State Ministry of Education, National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), Kaduna Polytechnic and National Teachers Institute (NTI), the board will also ensure uninterrupted power supply during the examination.
He said although UTME candidates for 2013 will have options of Paper Pencil Test (PPT) and Dual Based Test (computer and paper), the board will begin full blown computer based testing by 2015.
“From now on, with the use of Computer Based Testing (CBT), candidates will get their result within 30 minutes after the examination. It will also address cases of result black out and examination malpractice,” he said.
