It is so sad that the Nigerian education system is so rotten, so below standard and this doesn't in any way bother the government as of course, their own kids go to the very few standard but expensive schools we have and most of their kids study abroad where education is prioritized and raised to standard.


This has been exposed in the just concluded University Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME as most of the students couldn't handle their computer. That is to say, many students/candidates who wrote the exam were computer illiterates. This is a big disgrace to our educational system.


If the government isn't ready to ensure students are taught how to use computers in secondary school, why introduce the use of computers in such a crucial examination?


An invigilator in the just concluded Joint Admission And Matriculation Board, JAMB, exam has revealed a sad experience of what happened in the Computer Based Test, CBT, Centres. According to the invigilator who took to her Twitter handle to express this, the prospective university students are most computer illiterates.


The introduction of the CBT since 2013 has proven to be a major challenge to Nigerian students as many can not master the Computers and this in turn leads to bad performances and this traces back to the primary and secondary schools not having adequate means of teaching computer to students.



According to Eniolaoluwa, the invigilator, in a hall of 250 students, only 10 could successfully use the computers. How shocking and saddening!
