The National Examination Council (NECO) will introduce Computer-Based Test (CBT) in objective papers of its subsequent examinations, Dr Paddy Njoku, the Chairman, NECO’s Governing Board, has said.
Njoku disclosed this on Thursday in Abuja during the board’s monitoring visit to the Model Secondary School, Maitama, centre of NECO Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination.
The chairman said that the visit was informed by the fact that today’s paper — Mathematics — was compulsory for all the students.
He also said he was impressed with how students and teachers conducted themselves.
“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.
“Mathematics is compulsory; so the hall will be full; that is why we decided to inspect them today. “We do about four levels of monitoring; we have invigilators’ supervisors, security men and external monitors drawn from institutions of higher learning, who independently, monitor without getting involved in the administration of the examination.
