These two computer parts and how to use them in your JAMB is what will be discussed in detail below.

What is a Keyboard?

This is almost the simplest method on how to use computer to write JAMB because it involves using just 9 keys (A, B, C, D, N, P, S, R, Y) on the keyboard.

Let’s see how.

Here’s an example of how your JAMB questions will probably look like on the computer screen.

Now how can you use the 9 keys to answer JAMB questions?

  1. Press “A” if you want to choose option A as your answer.
  2. Press “B” if you want to choose option B as your answer.
  3. Press “C” if you want to choose option C as your answer.
  4. Press “D” if you want to choose option D as your answer.

After choosing the option that you think is the correct answer for that question,

  1. Press “N” to go to the Next question.
  2. Press “P” to go back to the Previous question.

When you have answered all the questions in your four subjects,

  1. Press “S” to Submit your exam.

The computer will pop up a question on the screen asking if you really want to submit.

  1. Press “Y” to say YES and confirm your submission.
  2. Press “R” to Return to the questions without submitting.

Take note.

Once you press Y after pressing S, your submission will be confirmed and there is NO GOING BACK.

Make sure that you have finished all the questions in your four subjects before submitting.

What about the mouse?

The mouse is used to move the cursor and select items on the computer screen.

The cursor is a small arrow on your computer screen that moves with the mouse and points at items on the computer screen.

On a Desktop computer — the mouse is that device that looks like a “rat”.

  1. Can I answer a few questions in a particular subject before moving to the next? Or does one have to answer all in a particular subject before moving to the next?
