JAMB Concludes Arrangement For April 12 UTMEExamination


The Coordinator, Joint Admissions and
Matriculations Board (JAMB), Lagos office,
Alhaji Kamaldeen Oladeji, on Monday said
all was ready for the Unified Tertiary
Matriculation Examination (UTME),
scheduled for April 12.

Oladeji in Lagos said that 11 centres accredited for
the Dual Based Test and the 103 venues for the
Paper Pencil Test in the state were ready. He said
that the board was yet to compile the total number
of centres to be used for the Computer Based Test
(CBT) mode of the examination.

“As you may know, the CBT registration is still
ongoing, having been extended till March 31. “We
are yet to decide the number of centres we are
going to use in Lagos for this mode of the
examination, scheduled for May 17. “The board has
given out over 4,000 free compact discs to
candidates for the examination, to be used as
guide. “We usually give out two discs, with one
containing past questions and the other a
practical demonstration on how to operate the
computer during the examination,” he said.

Oladeji urged candidates who had not collected
their discs to come to the Lagos office of JAMB with
evidence of their e-registration slips to collect
theirs. (NAN)
