NECO adopts CBT for objective examinations


The National Examinations Council (NECO) on Monday said
that it was concluding plans to migrate from the Paper-
Pencil-Test mode to the Computer Based Test (CBT) mode
for its objective examinations. The registrar of the council,
Prof. Abdulrashid Garba, told the News Agency of Nigeria
(NAN) in Lagos. NAN reports that the management of the
council had, in 2015, announced plans to adopt the CBT
mode for its objective questions. According to him,
migrating into the CBT will make the examination less
cumbersome but be cost effective. “We have almost finalised
the procedure on the CBT mode for our objective
examinations. “As soon as we have a governing board in
place, the plan will be tabled before it for discussion and
approval. How soon this is achieved, depends on the Federal
Government. “We are, equally, working toward a complete
migration to the CBT for all our examinations. “It is not easy
to conduct theoretical, practical and oral components of our
examinations. “We are, however, currently talking with some
private firms on the possibility of using CBT mode for those
other examinations,’’ Garba said. (NAN)
