The idea was to make a trial run for checking the readiness of their facilities. If something goes wrong there would be time to face these challenges earlier on and to solve all the problems. This will prevent a situation whereby the issues will affect the e-UTME official examination test.
The management came to a conclusion that the intention to provide this beta-version of Examination would be good for both sides, for candidates and the Board. There is an opinion that the candidates will achieve better results with this trial testing. Moreover, it is a comfort to know that the trial test is free for the candidates.
Hope that the expectations of the management for better results will come true. Wish you good luck on your test!
