The National Examination Council, NECO has announced to introduce Computer-Based Test also known as CBT in objective papers of its subsequent examinations, says Dr Paddy Njoku, the Chairman, NECO Governing Board.
According to him the CBT will be introduced in the coming year.
He said he was impressed with the progress of the examination as students and teachers conducted themselves well. The chairman said that the visit was informed by the fact that today’s paper — Mathematics — was compulsory for all the students.
“We will introduce CBT in papers that need computer in the next exams, but some other subjects are either practical or essay; so you cannot put everything under CBT,” he said.
NECO Registrar, Prof. Abdulrashid Garba, also affirmed that the Council will use the CBTT system in 2016.
This is coming a week after the Head of National Office (HNO) of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), Dr Charles Eguridu, said it will not be possible to fully adopt the CBT at the moment because of the variables involved.
