Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, has assured that the conduct of the 2018/19 examination will be much better than past years.
He also announced that registration for the exams would commence before the end of November, urging prospective candidates to visit the board’s website, download JAMB app, syllabus and brochures.
Professor Ishaq Oloyede said these during an interactive session with JAMB CTB owners from across the country.
1). We have learnt some lessons from the last year’s experience and therefore introduced some measures that will further add to the integrity of the registration process and the conduct of the examination.
2). Four example, we discovered last year and this year that some electronic devices such as Pens, wrist watches, were used to perpetrate exam malpractices.
3). We are also going to introduce some detective devices to ensure that those who plan to cheat inside the examination halls are frustrated.
4). We will not rest ourselves. As they are planning, we are also planning not allow them to play any old tricks. We know they will come up with new tricks but we will outwit them”.
Oloyede disclosed that the 71 JAMB CBT centers found to be culpable during the last exercise were either suspended or banned, with the board prosecuting some albeit with grievous offences.
Oloyede said the board would henceforth install electric jammers and lens detectors at every JAMB CBT to neutralize gadgets candidates may have sneaked into the hall.
Although there is no specific date on when to commence 2018/2019 JAMB registration but from the information we gather from JAMB portal – Prof Oloyede has proposed March 9th to 17th for the commencement and conclusion of the 2018 UTME.
