How To Write and Pass 2015 JAMB UTME CBT Examination
As pointed out above, you don’t need to be a computer expert before you can write a Computer Based Test. In the case of JAMB, the computer you will use will be ON, meaning that you’re not required to switch it ON.

The JAMB software will be open in all the computers for the halls for the examination, so you don’t also need to start searching the computer programs or archives for the software.

Note today that the only thing you will be required to type or key into the computer is Your JAMB Registration Number. Every other thing will have to do with just clicking the mouse.

A computer mouse has two two buttons: the left button and the right button. The left button is the one you will use mostly for the exam, because it’s like the MARK button. Once you are assigned a computer, check and ensure that the mouse is working before you input your JAMB Reg No.

Just move it and know whether the mouse pointer is responding. This is very important because if the mouse is not working, you won’t be able to answer a single question.

The login page is a white and green page where you will input your JAMB registration number and click at submit.

ALL the computers are timed as follows:
THREE (3) hours,
Forty five (45) minutes,
Thirteen (13) seconds.

The first page you will see is where the instruction is. Just proceed and read the instructions carefully before clicking on “Start”. Once you click “Start”, the timer will commence and run till the time allotted for the exam elapses. The subjects which you chose during your JAMB online registration will appear. It is now left for you to click on any of the subjects you want to start with.

Please note that there are 3 buttons which are the following: Previous, Next, Finish.

There’s also an option that allows you to skip a question and come back to it later. If you skip a question, a red indication will be blinking on the number you have not answered. This notification is designed to remind you and to ensure that you don’t leave any questions unanswered.

The comprehension passage will appear fully on each question from the passage. So there is no need writing down or cramming the comprehension passage. When you are through with answering all the questions or when you see the timer is approaching, say, 10 seconds, quickly click on logout and then SUBMIT. This is very important.

Please note that there is no law that says you must answer the number 1 question before the number 2 or that you must answer Chemistry before physics. The exam is designed in such a way that you are allowed to choose which subject or questions to start with. Ensure that you answer the “simpler ones” that you are sure of first before attempting others.
