“I seem to be very comfortable and happy with what they are doing. But my question has not been answered; that there may be people who are not computer literate, so, what do you do with them. I do not have reservation about CBT but I have sympathy for those who are not computer literate and there are many of them.”
Ojerinde has however, urged those who sat for the examinations to visit the JAMB’s website and check their respective results.

“The figures however recorded a slight increase of 113,673 candidates who applied for the examination in 2015.”
