JAMB CBT: NYSC to train 500 students in Enugu

National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members in Enugu State are to train no fewer than 500 students in Awgu Local Government Area of Enugu State on computer appreciation.

The training is to prepare the students for the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Computer Based Tests (CBT) currently deployed for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME).

The NYSC State Coordinator, Mr Stephen Dewan said that the move was in line with the Community Development Service (CDS) of the NYSC scheme, aimed at addressing the felt needs of host communities.

He said that the NYSC had discovered that there were no computer training centres in the area, which would affect the performance of students participating in such examinations.

The state coordinator said that it had become necessary to make intervention considering recent innovations introduced by the regulators of the examinations.
