The National Examination Council(NECO) is set to introduce Computer-Based Test (CBT) in all objective papers of its examinations from next year.
According to the Chairman Governing Board of NECO, Dr Paddy Njoku, the exam body will introduce CBT in papers that need computer in the next exams.
He said that some other subjects are either practical or essay; so they cannot use CBT totally.
Njoku, made the disclosure on Thursday in Abuja during the board’s monitoring visit to the Model Secondary School, Maitama, centre of NECO Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination (SSCE).
He said he was impressed with the progress of the examination as students and teachers conducted themselves well. The chairman said that the visit was informed by the fact that today’s paper – Mathematics – was compulsory for all the students.
The Chairman said that the performance of students in the examination had improved over the last two years based on students who made five credits, including Mathematics and English.
According to him, the performance will continue to improve “since the rot created over the years will take some time to fix”.
