While delivering his speech during the strategic planning
retreat on monitoring and supervision of 2017 UTME held at Arewa House,
Kaduna yesterday JAMB Registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede said the board has adopted the use of 8 keys device instead of the previous mouse being used by candidates during the UTME.
He said: From the general feedback on the adoption of the Computer Based Test
mode, we have noted the challenge of computer low level literacy of some
candidates, especially with the phobia for the mouse.
This has been responsible partly for the call by some people for
reversal to the Paper and Pencil Test mode. In order to ensure equity
and level playground for all candidates taking the Unified Tertiary
Matriculation Examination, the Board has designed a system that will
allow candidates use only eight (8) keys without the use of the mouse.
All the candidates need to do is to press the letters A,B,C,D for responses (answer) to questions and keys:
P = Previous question
N = Next question
S = Submit responses when candidate has finished examination
R = Reverse (do not intend to go further to submit again)
Don’t Be Left Out!
