The sudden increase in the number of recruitments enroll in each school has transcended the manipulation of the existing system used by the school administrators and this prompted a lot of problems which encompass the inaccurate computation of students result by the staffs on the account of nonavailability of adequate number of computer systems for the computation. This is a very ugly development.
Also, it was very complicated to observe when the enrolment of students should cease since there was no efficient system for the estimation of enrolment ratio to give a signal when the enrolment tends to move beyond the projection. All these and more are encountered due to the debilitation of the prevailing system used. It was very difficult to point out students who cheat in the course of examination as attributed to the nonstandard measure used in the supervision of the examination.
The school complained seriously on the unnecessary stress encountered while making the recruitment enrollment manually.
