REASONS FOR NECO CBT OBJECTIVE FOR 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 NECO CBT objective for examinations mode for its questions.
According to him, migrating into the CBT will make the examination less cumbersome but be cost effective.
â€œWe have almost finalised the procedure on the CBT mode for our objective examinations.
â€œAs 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.
â€œWe are, equally, working toward a complete migration to the CBT for all our examinations.
â€œIt is not easy to conduct theoretical, practical and oral components of our examinations.
â€œWe are, however, currently talking with some private firms on the possibility of using CBT mode for those other examinations,â€™â€™ Garba said.
