UTME: Over 97,000 candidates got results overnight – JAMB boss

Candidates sitting for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination(UTME) will henceforth get their results two hours after leaving the examination hall.

Already, over about 97,000 candidates who sat for the exams recently have seen their scores.

Registrar, Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board(JAMB), Prof Dibu Ojerinde, on Wednesday told newsmen during a supervision exercise that the scores were sent to the mobile phones of the candidates.

He noted that the development serves as a boost for the 100% Computer Based Test exams.

For candidates who are at disadvantaged areas and can hardly operate the computer, Ojerinde said “CBT has taken two years to advance and can only get better in subsequent years”.

“Don’t forget that once the candidates operate their phones, they can as well be able to operate the computer.”

He made this known during a workshop for staff and management of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) in Lagos. He described as alarming the inability of candidates to gain admission into various tertiary institutions in the country.

According to him, for the country to overcome this challenge, open and distance learning system of education must be embraced and empowered. He mentioned that virtually all the leading universities in the world, including Harvard University, Yale University, among others, have adopted MOOCs as a way of opening up access to all categories of students free of charge.

JAMB Set To Use 400 Centers For First Computer Based Test (CBT)

According to our source, it was gathered that yesterday, The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, on Thursday JAMB said the advice became necessary because the sale of forms for the examination commenced since September, 2014 to close on January 30. “The 2015 UTME application closes on Friday, 30th January, 2015 and all candidates desirous of sitting for the examination are advised to immediately obtain the application documents at the designated banks,” Mr. Benjamin said. “This is to ensure that they get registered and avoid being left out. In view of the above, the board has completed all processes and preparations and has put in place all logistics needed to conduct a hitch-free examination.” JAMB further said that no fewer than 400 centres would be used for the examination in Nigeria and abroad.

According to the statement, members of other examination bodies in Africa and beyond have indicated interest to understudy the board’s CBT during the examination. It said the development was an indication of the confidence of the international community in the board’s ability as manifested in the two previous exercises in 2013 and 2014.

The statement urged candidates to be conscious of the fact that the 2015 UTME was only on the CBT mode. “Candidates are to disregard any contrary information as the examination is scheduled to hold beginning March 4th 2015,” he said. The statement further advised candidates to shun all acts that were contrary to the conduct of an examination of international standard like the board’s CBT.

It warned that the board would not hesitate to impose severe sanction on any candidate found wanting. “For the avoidance of doubt, the board wishes to state that any candidate who registered twice will have his or her result cancelled,” it said. “JAMB has a mechanism that detects double registration, irrespective of how it is disguised.

The board has also made adequate arrangements to ensure that blind candidates sit for the 2015 UTME, using CBT.”
