The Computer Based Test (CBT) is an important part of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) recruitment process for 2023. Candidates who have been shortlisted for the recruitment process will be required to take the CBT. The CBT will be used to evaluate the candidates’ knowledge and understanding of relevant subjects such as Nigerian laws, current affairs, and other topics related to the duties of an NIS officer.

The CBT will be conducted at designated test centers across the country, and will be administered under strict supervision to ensure a fair and objective evaluation of the candidates’ abilities. Candidates will be required to bring a valid form of identification, such as a passport or national ID card, to the test center.

The CBT will consist of multiple-choice questions, and candidates will be given a set amount of time to complete the test. The CBT will be scored electronically, and the scores will be used in conjunction with the results of the physical fitness test and the medical examination to determine the final selection of candidates for the training program.

It is important for the candidates to prepare well for the CBT, by studying relevant materials and familiarizing themselves with the format of the test. Candidates should also ensure that they have a good understanding of the duties and responsibilities of an NIS officer, as well as the laws and regulations governing the service.
