300 students from selected public and private schools in Zango Kataf Local Government Area (LGA) of Kaduna State were given training on computer usage for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) that will take place from April 25 to May 2, 2023.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the training was provided because many students from the council have failed UTME in the past due to their limited experience with computers.
Francis Sani, the council chairman, addressed the students and urged them to make the best use of the opportunity given to them.
Sani who was represented by his Special Assistant on youth and sports, Ezekiel James, promised to offer tertiary education scholarships to any student who scored 240 points and above in UTME.
The training was conducted by the Phoenix group, where its leader, Charles Dyaji, advised the students not to be intimidated by the computers' size and to always skip difficult questions during the exam.
After the training, some of the applicants spoke with newsmen and thanked the council chairman for the opportunity to have an idea of what the actual exam would be like.
The students were reported to have been allowed to log in for the exams, select their subjects and answer questions from a dummy in preparation for the real examination.
