Another candidate, Ahmad Lawal told NAN that he was satisfied with the questions as they were what he prepared for before the examination.
The questions were from the syllabus and fair, even though, not exactly from past examination questions, but they were of course in the same direction.
“I am sure to gain high marks, because I know I read well for this exams.
“I also appreciate the entire process, the exercise was timely, I didn’t have any problems with my computer and those who did were attended to swiftly by the officials.”
