A new educational application called JAMBrite App, has been built to support and prepare prospective candidates of the Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) examinations for their entrance examinations into tertiary institutions.
Making this information available in Lagos last weekend was Ms Abimbola Izu, a former executive director of Skye Bank and the proponent of the JAMBrite App.
Assuring that the mobile application would boost the performance of students in their examinations, she explained that experience had shown that young people now learn faster with less conventional, creative, innovative and fun-learning tools.”
“Some organisations have discovered the need to leverage modern technologies to prepare students for their examinations in a fun and creative way. One of the devices developed by such education-learning centres in Nigeria today is JAMBrite, a newly released mobile educational App, available on Google Playstore handle at www.jambrite.com,” she said.
Izu assured that JambriteApp is an easy-to-use online platform and mobile app that would allow students to learn anywhere and at anytime as well as at their own pace and convenience.
She explained that the mobile application comprises of tutorial videos of JAMB-type questions and the answers painstakingly explained in a fun and interactive way by expert tutors, with many years of experience in successfully preparing students for JAMB.
She noted that the idea of the App was borne out of the passion to rekindle the diminishing interest in studying by young people by delivering learning in the contemporary digital medium and to ultimately improve the quality of students who enter the tertiary institutions in Nigeria.
Highlighting some of the features of the app, she said: “The App has tutorial videos of detailed explanations of up to 250 questions each for 10 subjects, and 500 questions for English Language.”
She added also that “the chat room facility on the App provides the much needed interaction with tutors for real time clarification on issues, while the 6,000 Practice CBT questions provided offers students the opportunity of conducting a self–mock examination over and over again.
