– National Examination Council(NECO), has stated that it is not ready to migrate to the use of Computer Based Test (CBT) mode for objective questions as earlier planned until adequate facilities are in place.
This was announced by the Abuja Liaison Officer of the council, Mr Abdul Mustapha. According to him, certain efforts have been made to see this development come to pass but it will not be possible until certain states fix the requisite facilities.
In His Words, “NECO examination has components of essay, practical, oral and objective. “CBT is only possible with objective component; machinery has been put in place to do the CBT in the objective component.
“However, that will take time; because to do CBT, states must have centres for it. “Our examination takes place even in the most remote rural areas,’’ he said.
