This year’s JAMB UTME Unified Tertiary Matriculation examination will start on Monday. To many students, this is another time for apprehension and fear.
Since a few years ago, the problem has become compounded by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board’s decision to make the exam computer-based only. Apart from the problems of logistics – inadequate and faulty computers, electricity issues, among others – many candidates are simply not computer-literate. As a result, such folks seem to be entering the exam hall already failed.
This is apart from controversial information flying around. While some candidates are complaining that they cannot yet get info on their centre, there is a claim that JAMB has ordered candidates not to bring their own calculators.
My advice to candidates is that: this is not the time to despair. Instead, they have to brace for the challenge and make the best use of the situation.
The first thing to bear in mind is that there is the need to practise the use of a computer – even in the next three days before the big deal. For those who do not have an easy access to such, they can contact neighbours or any quarters where they are likely to secure assistance.
Also, You should endeavour to arrive at their centres early enough. If you do so, and there is a change in venue, you will be able to pursue the alternative. If the centre remains the same, you will have an opportunity to familiarise themselves with the computers, provided the examiners appreciate the need to do so.
Also, with the IT-based exam, there is no room for cheating. Everyone is on their own. So, you need to get to the hall prepared.
It is equally wise to move on once a question is proving too difficult to answer. This will afford the you enough time to cover other areas, instead of losing on both ends.
