JAMB Scraps Mouse, Adopts “Eight-Key Device” System For 2017 CBT Exam

JAMB Scraps Mouse, Adopts “Eight-Key Device” System For 2017 CBT Exam
Due to high level of computer iliteracy of some candidates, especially with the phobia for the mouse, the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB has disclosed that it will adopt an “eight-key device” for the 2017 UTME.

Speaking during the Strategic Planning retreat on Supervision and Evaluation of 2017 UTME examinations the JAMB Registrar noted that 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 (cool keys without the use of the mouse.

All the candidates need to do is to press the letters A,B,C,D for responses (answers) to questions and keys P, N, S and R representing different functions as follows:

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)

According to him, this new method will eradicate the challenge of low computer literacy and phobia for mouse by some candidates.

On the new arrangements for the visually impaired candidates, the JAMB Registrar said Digital Bridge Institute in partnership with the board has agreed to set up three dedicated centres in Abuja, Lagos and Kano in 2018.

But for the 2017 UTME, board has reached an understanding with the association for the blind persons in Nigeria and blind students in Lagos that an abridged approach would be used for the 2017 UTME, whereby all prospective blind candidates would be invited to three centres in the country for special assessment in their subjects of choice and relevance to their desired courses and programmes.

Meanwhile, Registrar/Chief Executive Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, on Wednesday in Kaduna, stated that candidates writing the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) this year would spend two hours instead of three hours.

He said this during the opening ceremony of a strategic planning retreat on the monitoring, supervision and evaluation of 2017 UTME.

According to him, the reduction in exam time was in line with international best standards and practices where no candidate is kept in an examination such as UTME for more than two hours.
