LATEST information reaching our news desk today, is that the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is planning to make the JAMB result of students for up to 2 Years.
According to the JAMB Registrar, Professor Dibu Ojerinde, who has explained how the JAMB UTME results could be valid for more than one year.
The Registrar also went on to disclose that this would be possible if there was an aptitude test and that the JAMB board would use the Iris of the eye to verify candidates in the nearest future (yeah, you heard that right, just like in the movies, but how long will this be?)
According to full detailed information reaching our news desk, the Registrar/Chief Executive Officer of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Professor Dibu Ojerinde, had explained that the UTME result of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) could be valid for two years, if there was aptitude test.
The JAMB management made this information public when he decided to speak in FCT Abuja at the 11th seminar of Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC).
The Registrar also disclosed that the aptitude test was different from achievement test, adding this and we quote him directly:
“Achievement test is what we are doing now. We have a syllabus.”
Prof, Ojerinde also said that JAMB had secured up to 375 centres for next year’s UTME, adding that the federal government was planning to give the board 109 additional centres.
He also went on to note that last year, JAMB used 156 centres to conduct the UTME, but this year, it’s more different and the centres are completely CBT.
Ojerinde also said that in the nearest future, JAMB would use Iris of the eye to verify candidates, to make things easier for the kids to register.
He also said and we quote him:
“In less than two years time from now, in every state, Local government in Nigeria, there will be full of centres. Very soon, UTME examinations will be done individually between January and December,”
The Registrar went on to say that the forum derived its legal framework from section 6 (b-f) of the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Act 2000, which empowers the commission to prevent corruption through system studies and reviews of government agencies.
