UTME JAMB CBT Practice Test


JAMB LogoIn preparation for newly introduced Computer Based Test (CBT) for candidates, the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has launched an online JAMB CBT Practice Test.

The Computer Based Testing (CBT) preparatory engine is presently in two different versions, i.e. paid and free versions. The free version of the program has been integrated into JAMB portal, so all interested students can use the program for free. The paid version which grant access to full features of the testing engine not captured in this free version.

The free version is available for student practice, this is to help them get familiar with Computer Based Testing (CBT).  Users are allowed to pick from a choice of 21 subjects.

Here are some observation a candidate should note about the JAMB CBT Practice Test and the live JAMB CBT examination.

On selection of a subject, you are presented with a set of instructions which I think are the standard instruction that apply to the live JAMB CBT examination and not the JAMB CBT Practice Test including a time duration of 45mins for 50 questions. For the JAMB CBT practice test, you are expected to attempt 10 questions in 10 minutes. Like a typical Computer Based Tests (CBT) application, there is an on-screen timer counting down the moment the first question is display.

For the JAMB CBT practice test, you are notified if the option you choose is wrong and allowed to try again, this definitely will NOT be the case in the Live JAMB CBT examination.

During the JAMB CBT Practice test, you can change your subject, I doubt if this  option will be possible during the Live JAMB CBT examination.

Finally, after the JAMB CBT Practice Test, a detailed result page is displayed showing a list of all your items and responses. This certainly will not be the case after the live JAMB CBT examination. The best you MAY have is your result if JAMB decide to release the result immediately. If otherwise, candidates should know that one of the beauty of CBT is the fact that the result is ready immediately each examination is completed.

Interested candidates can start practicing now on their computers and mobile devices. Signup an account now in order to access the full version that includes everything like in the real JAMB CBT senario comming up next year.

    Universities on Monday expressed concern over the
    ongoing strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff
    Union of Universities and called for its immediate
    This was contained in a statement issued by Prof. Kimse Okoko, the Chairman, Committee of Pro-
    Chancellors of Nigerian Federal Universities, in Abuja on
    The statement said the strike by ASUU had lingered
    because of the non-implementation of the 2009
    agreement between the Federal Government and the union.
    The statement said: “The collateral consequences of
    the strike are as it relates to the Post-UTME screening
    and the semester examinations in some universities,
    as well as the general dislocation of the academic
    calendar. “The committee of pro-chancellors wishes to appeal to
    all parties concerned to dispassionately expedite action
    to resolve the matter soonest.”
    The statement further said that the committee, on its
    part, would work assiduously toward ensuring quick
    resolution of the impasse.
