The Federal Government has come out to say that the Computer Based Tests, CBT, established by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB will not be scrapped.
The Minister of State for Education, Professor Anthony Anwuka, who stated this while fielding questions from journalists in Owerri Monday, however advised students to strive to become computer literate in line with the global best practices.
“The Computer Based Tests have been institutionalised by JAMB and there is no going back on this policy. Computer literacy is now in vogue all over the world and anybody that decides to deny himself this competency, has himself to blame”, Anwuka said.
When reminded that some people have been protesting over the CBT examination policy, the Minister said: “If a student, who goes out there and fails the CBT examination, decides to carry placard against JAMB instead of making concerted effort to be computer literate, that is his business”.
