The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board registered 1.8 Million candidates for the 2019/2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME.
Numbers of students looking forward to being admitted into any tertiary institution in Nigeria are on a high side, and everybody knows that these students cannot be giving an admission without passing through the jamb.
However, the students are trying their best to make sure they get the exam done and have better grades,
Well, it was gathered that a lot of exam malpractices were discovered in some centers across the states and these have caused a delay in getting results released.
Jamb has been in existence for a while and we believed as time passes by, they ought to have improved a lot.
But the reserve is the case as some candidates still face challenges during registration
The verification was so complex that some candidates complained of inability to be verified by the thumbprint scanner during the biometrics verification exercise.
Since the only condition for allowing candidates into the exam centers was by the biometric verification process.
The functioning of network servers of some Computer Based Test, CBT, exams. It was, in fact, worse at some CBT centers where candidates experienced abrupt network cut-off midway into their exams only for the networks to be restored a few minutes to restore a few minutes to the end of the exams.
These candidates couldn’t complete their exams within the given time as he was running while the network went off and they watched helplessly.
Nobody expected this from jamb because we expect them to do more better each year
Few months to the exam, Jamb declared full readiness and whoever knew this is what it is going to turn out to be.
If Jamb cannot improve to meet the expectation of all, is it not better to scrap it out.
