This was disclosed by the board’s spokesman, Dr. Fabian Benjamin while explaining the reason JAMB introduced mock examination beginning from this year.

Benjamin said the decision for the introduction was to avail candidates of the opportunity to acquaint themselves with computer-based test (CBT) exam adopted by JAMB a few years ago for the conduct of matriculation exams.

The spokesman lamented situation whereby some candidates, particularly those not conversant with computers fail the exams, adding that the mock exam would help them to familiarise with the workings of CBT, to avoid unnecessary mistakes during the examination.

“The board will mount a mock examination in all the accredited CBT centres, to prepare and familiarise interested candidates with the CBT environment. Interested candidates are advised to indicate their interest in the mock examination during the registration process,” he said.
