JAMB Seeks More Centres for 2015 Computer Based Test – The Coordinator, Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, Lagos Zone, Alhaji Kamaldeen Adedeji, has urged stakeholders to collaborate with the board to prepare more centres for its Computer Based Test in 2015.
Adedeji told the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos on Monday that the board had already started making moves that would ensure there were equipped centres for the tests by 2015.
He noted, however, that the collaboration of stakeholders was necessary to ensure that enough centres with necessary logistics were in place before the 2015 examination.
JAMB had said that it would in 2015 phase out the Paper/Pencil Test and the Dual Based Test modes of its Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination
According to him, there is no going back on the board’s plan to migrate fully to the computer-based platform by 2015 as it has started inaugurating more centres across the country.
He said, “This examination has come to stay because it is the future. We are not going to take anything to chance and that is why we have embarked on this project of building more centres for the examination in various states.
“What we have put in place will pass for model centres that have all it takes to contain a sizeable number of candidates, as well as back up, to ensure uninterrupted conduct of the examination.”
The JAMB official also called on stakeholders to join hands with the examination body to establish more centres.
“All we are soliciting is to get stakeholders across the country to join hands with the board in building more of such centres to ensure the conduct of a hitch-free examination.” (NAN)
