Following its total conversion to
Computer-based Test, CBT for all its subsequent examination, the Joint
Matriculation Board, JAMB, has called on Nigerians to build CBT centres
across the country.
- Prof. ‘Dibu Ojerinde
This appeal was made by the board’s Registrar and Chief Executive, Prof. ‘Dibu Ojerinde.
The professor who made this call on
Monday at the 2nd Technical Committee Meeting on 2014/2015 Admissions to
Degree, Nigeria Certificate in Education and National Diploma and
Awarding Institutions held in Minna, wants the centres constructed to
accommodate all candidates in the 2015 Unified Tertiary Matriculation
He stated further that the board would
ensure that CBT centres were in place so that candidate would be
accommodated in the 2015 UTME, adding that it would go a long way to
solve a lot of problems associated with the examination.
The Registrar explained that the
agency’s examinations would consist essentially of Computer Based Test
in the 2015/2016 UTME and urged Niger State to build and operate
computer centres in three Senatorial Districts for the candidates.
“Our latest investigation shows that
the Niger State College of Education, Minna, Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida
University, Lapai and the Niger State Polytechnic, Zungeru, are state
institutions that can be equipped for this purpose,” Ojerinde said.
