This is the LIVE UPDATES! thread for JAMB 2018 Mock Exam. We will now monitor all Mock Exams Nationwide from here, so that those who don’t have the opportunity to write Mock will be updated. This thread will also be useful to even candidates, who wrote the exam, to help them gain even more experience that may be vital on the actual exam day that starts on 9th March.
This year, JAMB is holding only one mock exam. Even though the Mock exam is designed to help JAMB test their Systems, it’s also an opportunity for JAMB candidates to have first hand knowledge of the new technologies put in place for the 2018 UTME.
All JAMB Mock Candidates, Please use the comment section to update us every inch of the way, especially if you encounter any issues during the process. This is a Live Updates thread, so let us know when you get to your center, and if at all there is any delay or problems experienced during the process.
If you wish to take pictures of anything happening at the centre, you can do that and attach a copy in the comment section as evidence.
Please let us know the State and Centre location you are reporting from, so that JAMB officials looking at this thread can take notes.
Remember that mobile phones are not allowed into the hall, so don’t use the updates of this thread as an excuse to take your phones into the hall. You can let us know your experience after the exam.
While in the hall, please take note of everything;
1. Check if there are actually CCTV Cameras
2. Check if the systems are special in anyway (maybe if there’s no mouse)
3. When you login to take an exam, check how the CBT environment is laid out.
4. Where is the time Located, Where are your Subject Navigation Located, Where are the Question Numbers Located, e.t.c.
5. Check if you can use both Keyboard and Mouse (Remember JAMB said you can now use only Keyboard).
6. Check the time given for the exam
7. Check the number of questions given.
8. Remember that JAMB said typing “S” on the keyboard means you want to submit. Be careful!
Ensure you keep your items safe! Your phones, bags, money e.t.c. Please note that not everyone, who comes to the hall came for the exam. Some people are just natural thieves. They steal at every opportunity.
Just update us as much as you can, and we will appreciate every bit of information you pass across. We will create a thread for detailed experiences later in the day.
