THIS IS A REVIEW OF THE EXPERIENCE CANDIDATES HAD DURING THE JAMB UTME MOCK EXAM. HOW TO SOLVE THE PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED WHILE WRITING THE JAMB MOCK EXAM.
This is a summary of all the JAMB Mock Exam experiences for the 2017 UTME. We got these points from the Live Reports sent in by Edubazists , and we believe it will help you quickly overcome any challenges you may experience in the Main Exam, which starts from 13th May.
We’re pleased to announce that JAMB has successfully conducted her first ever mock exam for the 2017 UTME. We must commend JAMB for pulling this off, and giving candidates the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the new technology implemented.
Yes, the new technology was implemented by JAMB, and the good part is that you can now use both the Computer Keyboard and the Mouse (or track-pad for laptops).
If you are using the keyboard, here are the most important keys;
N – To move to the next question
P – To go back to the previous question
A – To select option A on a question
B – To select option B on a question
C – To select option C on a question
D – To select option D on a question
S – To submit your exam (Be Careful)
R – To Cancel Submit (and RETURN)
All the above will be stated before you start the exam, so you should read instructions properly before starting.
Please note that there are somethings that the Keyboard method does not offer you. In this case, you must use your Mouse (or track-pad). These are;
1. If you need to switch from one subject to another. Like if you want to answer a particular subject before going to another.
2. If you need to use the on-screen calculator at the top right corner of your screen.
If you have not properly used a computer before, please visit the nearest CBT centre to do that.
There will be 180 questions;
60 for English,
40 for each of the other subjects.
Use of English will now contain 1 comprehension passage (with about 6 questions) and about 8 – 10 questions from the Newly introduced Novel “In Dependence”. According to a Edubazist, the questions from the Novel are deep and are different from any questions you have seen online, so try to read the book properly.
The time stated for the exam is 120 Minutes (2 hours). Please don’t mistake this for 1 Hour 20 minutes. It is 2 hours.
Press F5 if your screen hangs
Candidates also complained about hanging of the JAMB CBT interface while taking the exam. According to some Edubazist, you won’t be able to click on anything, but your TIME will be counting down. The solutions that worked is to pressing F5 on the keyboard. You will see this key at the top keys of the keyboard. If you don’t know how to do this during the exam, please call the attention of the examiner. Don’t be afraid to do this.
Almost all centres started later than the time specified for students. The major set back is the Administrative and Logistic aspects of writing the exam. CBT Centres ought to start checking in students on time so they can begin at 7:00AM Prompt. This means you should not dare come later than the time stated on your Exam Slip.
