Jamb 2017 - Jamb cbt registration

It’s been about two years since we all hated Jamb paper and pencil (PPT) testing method. It seems like now it’s time for another Jamb testing method to be hated; the Jamb CBT (computer based testing).

Just few years ago, the Jamb CBT method was introduced to correct examination malpractice, which became very widespread in the paper and pencil testing method. As at 2013, the Jamb CBT update really favored so many Jamb candidates. This increased the love and general acceptance of the Jamb computer based testing method.

The Jamb 2013/2014 computer based examination was very awesome. I could remember how the candidates who used the ppt method (including me) were very unlucky. Like all other Jamb upgrade, the Jamb CBT boosted 40% of  Jamb results for those who filled the computer based method in their Jamb registration form.  This made all of us agree with the new Jamb cbt method.
