Latestschoolgist: What time did u participated in the Mock exam?
AbuUbayy: Thanks, I”m one of the 7.am batch.
AbuUbayy: All things went fine @ my center in Surulere Lagos though they were some delays.
I was among the 7am batch, I and other candidates arrived the venue before the stated Time, we did our BioMetrics (Thumprints) Verification after which we waited till 8.10am before we were ushered into the hall. This delay was as result of the Co-ordinators waiting for other students who are yet to arrive.
Contrary to what jamb stated earlier that Mouse would not be use, we used mouse @ my centre coupled with the eight keys. Experience has proven that Using Mouse with the eight keys was in the interests of the candidates.
