ABUJA – THE Federal Government yesterday, said it would construct over 774 e- Examination Centres for the conduct of Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board.

Registrar and Chief Executive of JAMB, Professor ‘Dibu Ojerinde, stated this in Abuja, while monitoring of the ongoing UTME in Abuja. he said President Goodluck Jonathan has given commitment towards ensuring that the ICT centres were ready before 2016 UTME, that is now purely computer-based.

Ojerinde, who was joined by the Minister of State for Education, Professor Viola Onwuliri, noted that a total 400 certified Examination Centres were being used for the kick-off of the full-blown Computer Based Test (CBT) this year, adding that the examination would be seamless next year when new centres would have been approved in addition to those to established by the government.

He admitted that there were few challenges encountered on the first day of the examination in some of the centres across the nation but said the Board has overcome those hiccups as the examination is progressing smoothly in all the centres.

He disclosed that as at Wednesday, the Board had successfully process and released over 895, 000 results of candidates who have so far sat the 2015 UTME.

He insisted that results were released about two hours after examination directly to the mobile phones supplied the Board by the candidates.

The JAMB boss clarified that some candidates failed to get their results because they gave wrong numbers, while also urging such candidates to check the results online on the Board’s website using their registration number.

He said the introduction CBT has eliminated the teething problems of examination malpractices, especially impersonation, that characterise the conduct of public examination in Nigeria.
The Minister in her remark, commended JAMB for the introduction of e-testing, which she said was in tune with the global trend.

Prof. Onwuliri, reiterated the commitment of the Federal Government to open more access to tertiary education, saying government was concerned about the low carrying capacity of the current universities in the country.

She said she was particularly impressed by the enthusiasm of the candidates in embracing the CBT, especially the Virtually Impaired who sat comfortably for the examination.

Onwuliri, stressed that the current administration of Jonathan places emphasis on excellence and the introduction of CBT, would further strengthen the quality of education in the country.

At least we re progressing. I wonder how this country would have been without selfishness and corruption from our leaders. I pray we make it right this time around, we cannot continue in the same direction and expect change. Change comes with ability, ability comes with attitude.

GEJ's policies are excellent if religiously implemented. By the time he leaves office, he would have set record of performance that will take many decades to be broken.

That one would be solved by improving the capacity of universities....and improving distance learning(eg NOUN)....and we could also make technical schools better.

Good point,BTW.

Well....you can go to a Polytechnic, college of education, or technical institute....and get a qualification that might get you into university....sometimes at level 300.

Life does not begin or end with a university degree....
