Bello added that apart from a slight technical hitch in launching the browser and accessing the questions, all other things were what she described as ‘perfect’.

“The examination on its own and the process of the examination were very okay, coupled with the serene environment.

“But, we initially had a challenge of getting to the question site because of a technical hitch which was also taken care of by the technical staff some minutes later.
