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.
Unfortunately the story has changed. Many Jamb candidates have started facing challenges using the jamb computer based testing method. The quality of Jamb CBT result has began to reduce exponentially since the 2014/2015 Jamb results were released and students have expressed their disappointment. Now, Is the Jamb CBT method going to be hated again?
What are the challenges in Jamb CBT?
The current trend in the Jamb CBT can be traced to three major factors:
- Systematic Error: Where your system suddenly go off or stop working.
- Jamb Error: This is an error that may occur at Jamb back-end. Here, you write very well but still score 50 in Jamb.
- Human error in Jamb CBT: This is the biggest part. It is mistakes on your part.
Although we can only call on the Joint Admission and matriculation board officials to correct the systematic error and back-end errors, yet you must play your own role to survive the 2017/2018 Jamb CBT update. In this article, I will be teaching you the best way to survive the Jamb CBT update so that you can score very high in the Jamb 2017/2018. I will try to make it very short and simple.
