JAMB: Only 100% fit CBT centres will be used for 2022 UTME The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said only Computer-Based Centres that are 100 per cent prepared will be used for its 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
The board announced this in its Weekly Bulletin of the Office of the Registrar, made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) yesterday in Abuja.
JAMB said as part of its preparations for the 2022 UTME, it had concluded arrangements to validate and accredit centres to be used for the exercise.
It explained that the development followed the outcome of its virtual meetings with its Chief Technical Advisers, Zonal Directors, State Coordinators and Technical Officers for the accreditation of the board’s examination centres.
JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, was quoted as saying that “the validation exercise is necessary to assess the conduct of the 2021 UTME and to look at those areas requiring improvement”.
He added: “The exercise, which would commence immediately after the modalities are defined, is to ensure, among other things, that only centres that are 100 per cent ready would be used for the UTME.
“This is in addition to giving other new ones the opportunity to showcase their capacity and be included, if found suitable, while ensuring that any centre that is lacking in terms of technical and infrastructural specifications is excluded from the exercise.”
