The ongoing Computer Based Test (CBT)
organised by the Joint Admissions and
Matriculation Board (JAMB) has been
generating a lot of controversy over the
inability of some candidates to see their
result almost days after writing the test.
However, a JAMB official in Lagos, Mrs.
Ebere Okeke, have allayed the fear over the
results by saying that all candidates CBT
result will duly be released except in
instances were it was the candidates fault or
mistake during the exam.
The JAMB supervisor attributed the delay in
releasing some candidates result to the delay
in processing of the result or network
problem, urging the CBT candidates to keep
checking the internet for their results.
She also said the CBT result delay might be
caused by individual negligence and
candidates who did not carefully fill their
numbers during registration. “Some
candidates have either misplaced their
numbers or changed them; as such, the
computer could not deliver the result after
the examination.
“The UTME test computer starts marking the
exam of a candidate immediately the
candidate starts writing the exams and will
deliver the result online in 48hrs time.
“This is not to say that the CBT doesn’t have
its faults, but it will get better as time goes
on”, she said.

  1. Jamb’s stupidity has fetched me reproach. They spent so much time entrusting the future of candidates in the hands of a computer and failed at it. They had better go back and recalculate our actual scores. Even without studying, i still can’t get 198, but thanks to jamb, my scores were drastically reduced, thus prolonging my goal of gaining admission into the University. If this is what CBT means, then i’d rather settle for the good old-fashioned papper test.

  2. This is just so outrageous! Even without studying for English, I could get a 99% score and after months of studying, what was I given? 48!, This manipulating people can really have one’s mouth agape…
