Abuja - The ongoing 2015 Computer Based Test of the Joint Admission Matriculation Board examinations (JAMB) in the FCT, has so far been without hitches, an official has said.
Babatope Ademiloye, the Deputy Director of the FCT JAMB Liaison Office, made this known in an interview on Wednesday in Abuja after visiting some of the centres.
Ademiloye, who supervised the CHAM City exam centre, said that only students who submitted wrong telephone numbers during registration would find it difficult getting their results on time.
He said: "We don’t have any serious challenge that we cannot cope with here and everything has been going on smoothly, everybody has been writing his or her paper smoothly without any problem.
"But what I know is that at least once you write your exam, you get your result, but I believe that some may have problem.
"Because, I know some of them that during the registration, they gave wrong GSM number and once it is sent, such people will not be able to receive."
One of the candidates at CHAM City exam centre, Francis ThankGod, who also spoke to NAN, corroborated what Ademiloye said.

ThankGod said the computer-based method was a way of curbing exam malpractice.
"It's more simple and organised, like you have to face your own business, nobody is disturbing you, just organised, there was no trouble.
"Just well conducted, there was no room for exam malpractice and the security outside was so tight you have to drop everything on you," he said.
Divine Onuegbu, another candidate at Digital Bridge Institute, said that the exam method was straightforward.
He commended authorities of JAMB for the proper coordination of the exam, adding that it would curb exam malpractice as well as reduce the issue of seized results unlike previous years.
