Jamb 2016 CBT
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced

that all computer-based centres to be accredited for the registration of

2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), must have

Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras.

JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede disclosed this at an interactive

meeting held at the University Of Lagos, with the operators of CBT

centres drawn from across the federation.

According to Oloyede, the move was part of the measures being taken

by JAMB to avoid errors of the past and also ensure that the best is

offered to Nigerians.

He noted that the new process has completely phased out cybercafé

operators, adding that the computer-based centres to be accredited must

have 250 desktop or laptop systems in a single room with provision for

additional 25 systems as back-ups.

The board also informed the CBT operators that all the 10 fingers of

candidates must be captured, and that anyone whose whole 10 fingers

cannot be captured by the CBT centres should be directed to the

headquarters of JAMB in Abuja, he added that this was done to avoid

multiple registration by candidates.

The meeting, which was attended by thousands of computer operators

from across the country, witnessed debates among participants on

several issues including the suggestion for the cancellation of UTME

mobile applications.
