All is Set for 2016 JAMB Exams

PIC.-15.-UTME-AT-BWARI-IN-ABUJAThe Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Tuesday said it had put necessary machinery in motion to conduct the 2016 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

Notice of the arrangements is contained in a statement issued by the Board’s Head of Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, made available in Lagos.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that JAMB is responsible for the conduct of the UTME for admission into the nation’s public and private tertiary institutions.

Benjamin stated that the all Computer Based Test (CBT) mode examination would be held in more than 400 centres within and outside Nigeria.

He added that “JAMB has approved more centres in order to give Nigerians the best computer based test ever conducted in a large scale by any public examination body. The Board insisted that these centres must meet best global requirements.”

“Some of the requirements are steady power supply, minimum of 200 computers, including Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS), accessible road, security must be guaranteed and the hall must have a waiting room. This year, there are also some innovations which will ensure that candidates write the examination under best atmosphere.’’

The Board also stated that the sale of application documents for the examination would close on Friday, Jan. 29.

According to the statement, the website will subsequently be shut on Friday, Feb. 5. The examination will be conducted between end of February and March. It did not specify the exact date of commencement. The Board noted that it would continue to introduce new measures to ensure that it remained on top in the area of assessment and measurement. The Board was currently concerned with restoring the lost glory of the country’s education system.

    2016 we’re still discussing electricity like it’s rocket science. When even rocket science is no longer rocket science. God punish corruption.

    Good luck to all taking the exam. Don’t cheat. May you do fantastically well and get into the program of your dreams. But if you don’t, may you see that there are many ways to skin a cat and may the so-called failure become a blessing in your life. Amen.

    PS I love
