The use of computer for the conduct of POST – UTME Examinations has become a common practice in many Nigeria Universities and other higher institutions of considerable repute and good academic standard – a common practice will be given to you here at TechRez .
The steps involved are simple but also technical but we will try to make things a little less messy.
Now, you need to carefully listen to the rules and regulations from the exam coordinators before doing anything.
On the examination day, you will be attached to a personal computer. Immediately you get on your seat, make sure you remain calm and release yourself from all forms of anxiety and fear. Do not be afraid, fear is the recipe for examination failure.
You will be provided with a code or a pin before you gain access into the examination hall. You will type the code and pin into the spaces provided in order to open your exam page. Some may only require you to type in your (surname) or Registration Number to open this exam page.
After opening up the screen, you will see spaces provided for your UTME (JAMB) registration number and your name (your surname first). Enter your name and registration number. This is very important!
Haven entered your name and registration number, your full name will appear and the computer will display a question on the screen asking you if you want to start. The next thing to do is to press YES and immediately, your questions will appear. This however, varies amongst universities. For some, immediately you enter your name and registration number (or pin) your JAMB (POST – UTME) questions will appear and all you need to do is start.
Take note, your time starts counting down immediately you enter your pin, name or registration number. Therefore be very conscious of time so you can finish up your work before your entire time ends.
Ensure you click on “next” after answering a question in order to pave way for the next question. In case you do not understand a question, click on next and move on to the next question while you “scroll” to view any question.
Note: The highest time limit you could be given is between 30 – 40 Minutes
After answering all the questions, use the mouse to take the cursor down and click on END or FINISH, then click on submit or send to submit your work. At times, the computer may not display END or FINISH, but it may just display SEND or SUBMIT,(this are usually placed below down the screen either on the right or left on the computer. Click on any of them to ensure that your paper is submitted.
Do not be too anxious to finish first or leave the hall before others. Life is not how far, it is how well. If you fail to submit your paper, your effort will result to zero, hence leading to failure
General Notice: Again, if you waste your time unnecessarily, when the 30 minutes expires the computer will shut down itself without waiting for you to click on submit, thus, leading to failure.
