Physical and health education, as well as computer studies, have been introduced to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board’s (JAMB) Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination for next year.

The board stated that the two topics would help candidates gain entry to university education by expanding their options.

Prof Ishaq Oloyede, the Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), revealed this in an interview with reporters after collecting an award for excellence from the Education Correspondents Association of Nigeria (ECAN).

“The next problem is the UTME campaign we just launched, which includes Physical and Health Education and Computer Studies.”

“We are requesting and informing the public, particularly students who will be taking the exam, that these are two Science disciplines that will be added to their choice in order to increase opportunities for applicants to obtain postsecondary education,” he said.

He stated that the board would pursue students who used forged certificates to gain admission.

“We are requesting assistance (on the subject of fraudulent certifications).” Issuing and using fraudulent certificates to gain admission to our institutions, especially for A level students.

The registrar stated, “We are working very hard to tighten the noose and make it impossible for those who engage in such an illicit action to succeed.”

The registrar further stated that the Board is striving to address the backlog of improper admissions conducted by the country’s tertiary education institutions.

The decision, according to Oloyede, is to save students who have the necessary qualifications but were accepted illegally.

“(On) the illegal admission issue, which we wish to put an end to. We aim to remove the backlog and make sure that those who were admitted incorrectly but have the required qualifications are saved.

“We want to keep the campaign going to deter individuals who are engaging in such illicit behavior,” Oloyede said.
