4 Signs- JAMB May not be ready for 2017 ... ... UTME
Some Nigerians are worried about the
preparedness of JAMB for this year’s
UTME and this is why.
1. Poor network for registration One of the complaints candidates have
had about the new registration process
introduced by JAMB is slow speed of
internet services at CBT centers.
Some have been stranded at
registration centres as they were unable to generate their Personal
Identification Number (PIN) due to poor
2. The mock examination failed to
hold The board had fixed April 8 for its
inaugural mock exam but it was
postponed last minute despite
assurances that nothing would go
wrong. Candidates arrived at their
centres on the day of the test but it was postponed until further notice due
to some “unforeseen circumstances.
Could this be a sign of things to come?
3. Not enough equipment for
computer based test Some Nigerians are of the opinion that
Nigeria has not developed enough in
Technology (ICT) to make CBT
One of the candidates said: “Nigeria has not gotten enough equipment to
make CBT mandatory. We have not
gotten there yet. A lot needs to be put
in place. If in the urban areas we are
still complaining of no network, what
then becomes of the villages?”
4. JAMB is yet to get it right The board had failed to carry everyone
along when it fixed mock test for April
8, knowing that some candidates had
not been able to do their registration.
Also, since CBT was introduced, it has
been one challenge after the other. “Since the introduction of CBT we are
still faced with network failure,
malfunctioning of computers and all
that. Is this a sign that JAMB exam
will experience hitches at the
detriment of the students?” one of the candidates queried.
JAMB registrar Prof Is-haq Oloyede
disclosed that about one million UTME
candidates were registered for the
2017 UTME as at April 7.
Meanwhile, candidates and their
parents all over the country have
raised an alarm over the stress of
registering for the examination.
2017 UTME: 1.237 Million Candidates Registered, Over 678 Centres To Be
The registrar of the Joint Admission
and Matriculation Board in a statement
has disclosed that 1.237 million
candidates have submitted their
applications already for the 2017
He further revealed that over 678
centres across the country against the
last year’s figure of 650 CBT centres,
would be put to use with estimated 1.5
million candidates for the examination.
He said though there was collaboration
with Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas
(LNG)-producing company to air lift
candidates in riverine areas to their
CBT centres. He mentioned that the reason for
‘capturing’ candidates’ ten fingers in
biometric registration is to forestall
incidence of multiple registrations as
noticed with previous years
registration. He said the board also insisted on
profile creation and other processes to
strengthen the education data and
ensure that candidates do not go
through ‘hell’ years after graduating
