JAMB: Less than a 100% fit CBT centers wont be eligible for UTME 2022

Only fully prepared Computer Based Centres will be eligible for the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, according to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

The board made the announcement in the Office of the Registrar’s Weekly Bulletin, which was made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Abuja.

JAMB said it had completed all arrangements to authenticate and accredit centers to be utilised for the 2022 UTME as part of its preparations.

It went on to say that the move came as a result of virtual discussions with the Board’s Chief Technical Advisers, Zonal Directors, State Coordinators, and Technical Officers to discuss the accreditation of the Board’s test centers.

“The validation exercise is important to examine the conduct of the 2021 UTME and to look at those areas that require improvement,” the board’s Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, was quoted as saying.

“The exercise, which will begin as soon as the modalities are specified, will ensure, among other things, that only 100 percent ready centers will be used for the UTME.”

“This is in addition to giving other new ones the chance to demonstrate their capacity and, if found suitable, be included, while ensuring that any center that falls short of technical and infrastructural standards is eliminated from the exercise.”

He also advised all of the participants in the exercise to make sure that all of the standards governing the validation of centers were adhered to without any sentiments or compromises.

The validation effort, according to Oloyede, was designed to establish a solid foundation free of shoddy practices in order to ensure a successful and trouble-free assessment.

According to him, centre validation, when done correctly, decides the examination’s outcome for the year.

He also instructed the officials to devote their whole attention to the work at hand, knowing well well that the board’s integrity and reputation were on the line.

Mr Fabian Okoro, the board’s Director of Information Technology Services (ITS), was reported as adding, “There would be six centers throughout the six geographical zones that would be utilized to test run the new-age technology JAMB was intending to install.”

According to him, JAMB’s Chief Technical Advisers were tasked with conducting thorough audits on the different centers’ CCTV installations and other security systems.

“If centers aren’t sufficiently covered, center owners must make plans to add more cameras since remote examination monitoring is unavoidable.”

All computer systems, according to Okoro, must be connected to a Local Area Network, and the board will not allow any wireless networks.

He also mentioned the requirement for all centers to be well-fenced and not share a space with any other business, as well as the installation of suitable backup systems, active power supply, and active and working air conditioners.
