Do CBT Centers Work on Weekends and After 4pm?

I've clearly answered the question of whether JAMB offices are open daily and till evening time or not in my recent post, "Do JAMB Offices Open on Weekend or After 4pm?".

And since the conclusion there was that JAMB offices will only be open to attend to you from Monday to Friday and within the working hours of 8am to 4pm, you may want to know if you can consider using the services of CBT centers during the weekends and hours after 4pm.

Although a quick reference was made to this in the post referred to above, it would be more considerate to answer this in a separate post.

In this post, I will be giving the working days/hours of any CBT center in Nigeria

Most CBT Centers Will Only Work Monday To Friday (8am-4pm)

I used the word "most" because the largest percentage of CBT centers in Nigeria belong to universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education.

If you take note, literally all universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education with well-furnished ICT halls (or average ones), take advantage of the JAMB CBT.

They register their ICT to take part in the computer-based exam being conducted by the Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB).

And since these institutions are public organizations, that are open to operations, usually during the official working days and hours, their CBT staff may also follow the same arrangement. Hence, these CBT centers are usually open from Monday to Friday and between 8am to 4pm.

As such, we're safe to say that if a CBT belongs to any of the higher institutions in the country, with some exceptions though, it's likely to work just like any other department of the same school.

Private-Owned CBT Centers Open on Weekends and Daily Beyond 4pm

As you might have thought, if a CBT center is owned privately, it's hardly affected by the weekends or public holidays and can work beyond 4pm on any opening day.

Around you, there are several CBT centers that are owned by individual businesses or people. These CBT centers can work as flexibly as they think necessary.

If a student contacted me to ask if a CBT center would be active on weekends (Saturdays), I told him or her to visit if I knew the CBT center no belonged to a university, polytechnic, or college of education.

As for the availability of a CBT center on Sundays to attend to you, I wouldn't say yes. It's apparent, Sundays are left for rest - which may cut across all works and institutions.

How To Know If a CBT Center Is Privately Owned

Well, first, check the list of CBT centers in the state you are now or you wish to use. For quick access, I've compiled them comprehensively. Click on your State to see the entire list.

  1. FCT Abuja
  2. Abia State
  3. Adamawa State
  4. Akwa Ibom State 
  5. Anambra State 
  6. Bauchi State 
  7. Bayelsa State 
  8. Benue State 
  9. Borno State 
  10. Cross River State
  11. Delta State
  12. Ebonyi State
  13. Edo State
  14. Ekiti State 
  15. Enugu State
  16. Gombe State
  17. Imo State
  18. Jigawa State 
  19. Kaduna State 
  20. Kano State 
  21. Katsina State 
  22. Kebbi State 
  23. Kogi State 
  24. Kwara State
  25. Lagos State 
  26. Nasarawa State
  27. Niger State 
  28. Ogun State 
  29. Ondo State 
  30. Osun State 
  31. Oyo State 
  32. Plateau State 
  33. Rivers State
  34. Sokoto State
  35. Taraba State 
  36. Yobe State 
  37. Zamfara State

Now, check through. Anyone that has the name of a university, polytechnic, college of education, government college, or secondary school in it is not private. Those with stand-alone names (without an institution's titles with them) are mostly, if not generally, private.


While you should note that some activities such as editing of names, date of birth, state of origin/LGA, conversion of UTME to DE, etc. are restricted to JAMB offices if you must do anything else, you can use the services of a nearby CBT center

And luckily, unlike JAMB offices, they can attend to you on Saturdays and weekdays and hours beyond 4 pm.
