JAMB’s head of media and information has revealed reason why candidates must register only at government approved centres.
A statement signed by JAMB’s head, Media and Information, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, has cautioned candidates against patronising unapproved centres while registering for the 2016 all Computer Based Test (CBT) of the UTME.
He said the registration for the 2016 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) should be done only at the board’s approved centres to avoid certain challenges such as no results and incomplete results.
“The board hereby wants to state unequivocally that it will not be liable in the event of any irregularity, challenges or inaccessible data arising from the wrong registration. JAMB, once again, urges candidates that their registration should be done at its approved centres, to avoid certain challenges such as no results and incomplete results.
The essence of registration at the approved centres for the candidates is to ensure complete results without any hitches. Candidates are also to note that the registration will be ending in January 2016.”
He confirmed that JAMB has concluded plans to make next year’s exercise problem free and ensure to ensure that all results are released. He also stated further that JAMB is working round the clock to give the country an examination that is malpractice and stress-free to guarantee fairness and equality for all and sundry.
The media head revealed that candidates will be provided more options to choose from a list of institutions with more spaces, which will give candidates second chance if they miss their preferred choice. He assured all that next year’s exercise will be different from previous ones.
