JAMB Latest News Update Today for 2017/2018 UTME Admission

See JAMB News Update for Today.

This is a summary of latest updates from the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) concerning the 2017/2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) results, cut off mark and admission.

The board said they will not release results of candidates identified in videos of Close Circuit Television (CCTV) to have indulged in exam malpractice and other unwholesome activities.

According to the JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, the exam body has been busy in the past days reviewing recorded footage of the examination across the country, and that a number of candidates had been marked out for sanction.

ALSO READ: JAMB Change of Course/ Institution Begins

The registrar said, “Those who have not received (their results) are qualified not to receive for now. In all cases where there were no problems, we released results of the examination within 24 hours.

“But those who have not (received their results), they may not be culpable but we are investigating. Where we have reason to doubt anything or where we have report of anything that is not acceptable to us, we have withheld the results.

“And we will keep on releasing them as we clear them. For instance, this morning, we released another 15,000 results. But among those who sat in that centre, we have reasons, concrete evidence to say about 300 of them, their results will not be released because we know they were not in the hall where the examination took place”, he added.

Oloyode said that interested applicants can however still register for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) being written in the country.

He said the Senate gave him a mandate last month to extend the registration period by one month which would run into May 28, being the final day the board would close its registration portal, for interested candidates who may still want to register but have not done so because of some hitches.

The examination body also denied rumour of deductions in candidates’ marks in the ongoing exam.

They advised candidates not to pay any money to anybody as their results had already been sent to their mails and also uploaded on the JAMB result checker website.

Candidates are to login to check the result with their registration number or with email address to print.

About 1.7 million candidates registered for the 2017 UTME and sat for the examination in 642 centres across the country.

JAMB directs candidates to check UTME centres tomorrow

JAMB directs candidates to check UTME centres tomorrow

All appears set for the conduct of this year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) as the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) yesterday directed candidates to check for their examination centres with effect from tomorrow on its website.

Head of Media and Information of the board, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, who disclosed this in a telephone interview ahead of the board examination billed to commence on Saturday, May 13 assured that necessary machinery has been put in place to ensure a hitch free exercise.

“We are good to go, every machinery has been put in motion, we enjoined parents and candidates to give us their support and on our part, we are assuring of a level playing filed for everyone.”

Benjamin disclosed that the board had so far registered more than 1.7 million candidates for the 2017 UTME across the country.

The board concluded the sale of 2017 UTME application document in a grand style recording over 1.7 million candidates at the close of the site by 12 midnight on Friday, May 5, 2017.

The JAMB’s spokesman who described the figure as unprecedented however assured that adequate facilities had been put in place to accommodate the upsurge in the number of candidates.

He said, “In 2016, about 1.2 million candidates wrote the examination. It was the same in 2015 and that was why we projected for 1.5milion candidates this year. Although registration period was reduced from six weeks to one month, despite this, we have recorded 1.7million candidates. This shows the effectiveness of our processes. It also shows that whenever you have a setback you should not give up.

“We have put everything in place to ensure the success of the examination. We have the capacity to accommodate 1.7million candidates. In 2016, we used 510 computer-based centres, including six foreign centres for 1.2million candidates. This year, we are making use of 633 centres. There is an increase of more than 100 centres to take care of the additional candidates.’’

He urged candidates who may experience any hitches during the examination not to panic so as not to fall into the hands of fraudsters while assuring that the board would be available to address their complaints.

JAMB assures of readiness to conduct UTME Mock Exams‎ on Saturday, 29 April, 2017.

JAMB assures of readiness to conduct UTME Mock Exams‎ on Saturday, 29 April, 2017.

The Joint Admission and Matriculations Board, JAMB, has said arrangements have been concluded for interested candidates to write the mock examination of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, this Saturday, 29 April, 2017.

The Registrar of JAMB, Is’haq Oloyede, made this known Wednesday in Abuja during a training session organized to equip JAMB staff and external resource persons drawn from across the country, on the technical know-how of the computer based test ahead of the mock UTME and UTME respectively.

According to him, the failure of the board to conduct the mock test as earlier scheduled, which was an unexpected glitch on the part of one of the partners, would no longer surface as the board has put alternative measures in place to ensure a successful mock UTME across all CBT centres in the country.

“After we have gone back to the drawing board because we didn’t expect a failure from one of our partners, what we have done is to create some other redundancies that if this one fails we will be able to come up with this.

“We believe that come next Saturday, we will do our best. What we have done now is that last Monday we conducted a preliminary mock in ten places across the country and it was 99 percent success. We conducted it in Sokoto, Abuja, Lagos, Ilorin, Nasarawa, Lokoja and we tested the technology again it was working but it worked because of the cooperation of all,” he said.

Oloyede disclosed that the board is in partnership two service providers, MTN and Airtel, to ensure a hitch free conduct of the examination; he however expressed displeasure over the network failure of MTN service provider during the preliminary trial testing in Bwari, Abuja.

“In Bwari the day we were to do the trial testing, between 12, o clock and 4 pm, there was no MTN anywhere in Bwari, we had to switch over to Airtel to be able to conduct the examination. We have protested strongly to MTN and we hope that MTN will not allow such. The reason we were given was that MTN was down in the whole of Bwari, that the generator was down, the battery was down, the backup was down from 12pm to 4 pm.

“”That was a strange coincidence but before we anticipated such we were able to switch to Airtel and we were able to conduct a successful preliminary testing. We hope that it will not happen again we have reasons that some of the things happenings are extraordinary but I have not been appointed to give excuses but to deliver and that is why I promise I will do my best hoping that every other party will play

While stressing that the mock UTME is free, the JAMB boss disclosed that all JAMB related examinations could be written anywhere in the country with mobile phones especially in the rural areas, in cases where there are no computers or the candidates are not computer.

Scrap JAMB now, ASUU tells government

Scrap JAMB now, ASUU tells government

Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), University of Ibadan (UI) chapter has called on the Federal Government to scrap the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

The Chairman, Dr. Deji Omole, who spoke in Ibadan yesterday said the board has outlived its usefulness and reducing the standard of offering admission to students, hence, it must be scrapped immediately to allow universities set a new standard of admission.

Omole, who bemoaned the board for the problems being encountered by candidates to register for the examination said the nation could no longer trust the future of the younger generation to a body that failed to conduct mock examination.

Omole said he had expected the Registrar of the Board, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede to resign after the board had disappointed the whole nation by failing to conduct a mock exam.
He said, “Since Prof Oloyede did not consider it appropriate to resign after failing the whole nation, I think the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, should not hesitate to sack him.

“Why will anybody make life difficult for candidates whose parents are struggling to live under the terrible condition the government has made them to live in? “This is where people are duping Nigerian children. This is a total failure. Students must have at least three months for registration, its procedure must be open and their options to public universities must not be limited to serve the agenda of the proprietors of private universities”, he argued.

Meanwhile, no fewer than 25 academic programmes run by Bayero University, Kano got full accreditation of the National Universities Commission (NUC). The NUC approval follows the national accreditation exercise conducted by the commission between November and December 2016 exercise.

Also, the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) will hold its entrance examination on April 22 by 9.00am at the Nigerian Air Force Primary School in Benin City, Edo State.

JAMB suspends registration for mock exams

…Nine Candidates Slump On Queue,
Govt. Decries Slow Pace Registration, Nonchalant Attitude Of Officials

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has reassured Nigerians especially the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) candidates and their parents that all hands are on deck to ensure smooth conduct of this year’s exercise.

Towards this end, the Board suspended the ongoing registration exercise for today, to enable it concentrate on the Mock Exams that would take place throughout the country ahead of the proper examinations scheduled for next month.

JAMB registrar, Prof. Is’haq Oloyede, who gave the indication in an interaction with newsmen yesterday, said the board would do everything to make the exercise stress-free.

Meanwhile the Board has suspended all activities relating to the registration exercise in any CBT center from 8pm yesterday, to resume on Monday. “However, as stated earlier, no one will be left behind as the deadline may be extended if there are applicants who do not succeed at registering due to circumstances beyond their control.

Meanwhile, hundreds of parents/guardians have continued to besiege the JAMB Office in Asaba, Delta State following poor registration exercise for its candidates. In the last two weeks, the office has been a mecca of sorts for aggrieved parents who described the exercise as discouraging and a ploy to deny their children from registering. Investigations reveal that candidates are facing untold hardship, as they struggle to stay in long queues under the sun.

It was gathered that the Data processing machines of the JAMB Office have broken down due to the high number of candidates. But the State Co-ordinator of JAMB, Mr. Emeka Mozie claims this is untrue, saying that the slow registration is caused by poor network.

In the early hours of yesterday, parents were seen at the gate, exchanging words with the Officials who instructed the security men to lock them out.
A parent, Mr. John Odigie, accused the officials of nonchalance while some of the candidates accused them of looking for bribes, and called on the police to investigate.

Business activities however, have increased around the premises as pure water, bread, and soft drinks sellers have taken advantage of the situation to make brisk sales.
Sadly, nine candidates slumped yesterday while on the queue after an endless wait for them to be registered but were rescued by officials of the Red Cross.

Meanwhile, the state government has expressed displeasure over the slow pace. Barr. Chiedu Ebie, the State Commissioner for Basic and Secondary Education, noted that it would be difficult for JAMB to register a reasonable number of candidates with what was on ground.

 

2017 JAMB examination – 12 things to note about 2017 JAMB examination — Registrar, Oloyede

INTRODUCTION
On behalf of the Management and staff of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, I happily welcome participants to this Strategic Planning Retreat on the Structure of Supervision and Evaluation of the Conduct of the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

When we sent out invitation to you and gave you a very short notice, we were skeptical on your finding time out of your tight schedules to honour our invitation. However, this large turnout has further confirmed our identification and choice of you as critical stakeholders with genuine and undiluted interest in this Nation’s education sector in general and in its assessment and evaluation sub-sector in particular where the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board plays a major role. I therefore thank you and appreciate your presence here today.

Before I go further, please permit me to pay tributes to my illustrious predecessors in office. We pray that the soul of Mr. Michael S. Angulu continue to enjoy eternal rest. Mr. Angulu as the first Registrar of the Board laid the foundation on which his successors have continued to build on. I salute Dr. Mohammed Abdulrahman, OON for the strong pillars built on the initial foundation and for the strong commitment at domesticating and internalizing various major activities that were hitherto carried out abroad. I congratulate Professor Bello A. Salim, OFR for the various innovations introduced into the system and for starting online activities, particularly in the registration process and the introduction of external monitors in the conduct of the Board’s examination. I commend Professor Adedibu Ojerinde, OON for taking the bull by the horn with the introduction of the Computer Based Test (CBT) to replace the Paper and Pencil Test (PPT) in the administration of the Board’s examination.

I am not unmindful of the acting tenures of Dr. Saleh Abubakar and Dr. Peter I. Odor for which they are all commended. There are many retired Directors of the Board who have been invited to this Retreat and who have graciously honoured us with their attendance. I congratulate you all and others who are not here on your modest efforts. You have all served your fatherland meritoriously and the Nation is proud of you.

2.0 IDEALS OF THE JOINT ADMISSIONS AND MATRICULATION BOARD
On my assumption of office as the fifth (5th) Registrar of the Board, I pledged to revisit and revamp the original ideals of those who thought it most appropriate to have a body like this Board and to pursue with vigour and passion their original objectives. I therefore salute the vision of the Vice-Chancellors of the then six (6) Universities who introduced the idea of synergy of their mandate in the areas of entrance examination and admission into the few universities that the Nation had. If synergy, peer review, cost saving, elimination of wastage, collaboration, cooperation and enhancement of academic excellence were identified and recorgnised then with only six Universities, these salient attributes, ideas and ideals are now more than ever before the basic of all requirements that are most critical for the integration and cohesion of the Nation’s Tertiary Education.

Though a lot of water has passed under the bridge between 1977 and today, the idea of inclusiveness is still as germane today as it was many years back. This is why between August 2016 when I assumed duties and this month, March, 2017, a period of eight months, I have visited various Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education, where I have met with the Management of the various institutions in order to renew and restrengthen our relationship and partnership. The Managements of the Board has also met with the Committee of Vice-Chancellors, Committee of Rectors and Committee of Provosts. We have equally met with the Management of National Universities Commission (NUC) and National Youth Service Corps (NYSC). We have taken the Board’s major events and activities to the Bayero University, Kano, Baze University, Abuja, Alvan Ikoku Federal College of Education, Owerri, University of Lagos, and others.

A few weeks ago in February, 2017, we held a retreat in Abeokuta, Ogun State where we were guest of former President Olusegun Obasanjo, who as Head of State in 1977 promulgated the enabling law of the this Board and gave birth to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board. At the retreat, we looked at the processes of registration and admission, we reviewed them and we adopted new strategies in tandem with new thinking and new challenges.

It is therefore in our stride and continuation at bringing all stakeholders on board our inclusive train that we have organised this retreat to take another look at the Board’s supervision and evaluation of its conduct of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

The aim of this retreat is to adopt an all-inclusive mode of examination supervision and evaluation. Recognising the stakeholding of major players in the Tertiary Education Sector, the Board wishes to give operational responsibilities to the major players in the administration of the Board’s examination. It is not enough for Politically Exposed Persons (PEP) to visit examination centres with sirens and large entourage of government functionaries with very little impact to show for their participation, other than to be under television camera lights and beamed same to the whole world but yet, the outcome of the examination is laced with stories of examination malpractice. This time around, the major players with requisite integrity, intelligence and appropriate knowledge of the assessment would be fully engaged to actively participate in the supervision of the examination.

3.0 INCLUSIVE APPROACH TO SALE OF APPLICATION DOCUMENTS

As part of our approach to the ideal of Inclusiveness, we invited all Central Bank of Nigeria approved commercial banks to participate in the sale of the 2017 Board’s Application Documents. Sixteen (16) commercial banks and NIPOST honoured attended the interactive session where we explained the reason and need for all of them to partake in the exercise.

After the interactive session, thirteen (13) banks including NIPOST signified interest to participate in the sale of the 2017 Application Documents. Between the date of commencement of sale on Monday, 20th March and yesterday, Tuesday, 28th March, 2017, the following nine banks have paid for the number of Application Documents they require in the first instance.

The banks are:
(i) Zenith Bank
(ii) Union Bank
(iii) Sterling Bank
(iv) Unity Bank
(v) First City Monument Bank
(vi) Fidelity Bank
(vii) First Bank
(viii) Skye Bank
(ix) Jaiz Bank

Still in the spirit of our All-Inclusive approach, backed by our sincerity of intent and purpose, honesty, integrity and truthfulness and with the sole aim and objective of reaching out to all nooks and crannies both in urban and rural areas, we had to patronise the NIPOST, a sister agency, which has the reach out to very remote towns and villages. Even when NIPOST could not raise the capital to purchase the pins for the Application Documents, we had to open a credit line for NIPOST to also vend pin and pay later without reducing the commission that the organisation is entitled to per sale of document.

No bank needed to know the Registrar or any Management member or anybody at all before being patronised. Rather every bank was given the opportunity to participate. We are actually for everybody and belong to everyone.

4.0 PIN VENDING SYSTEM
Emerging from the retreat at Abeokuta, the Board has innovated a contemporary sale of application method, which has led to the elimination of scratch cards. The Board has adopted a cost saving procedure PIN Vending System. It is a secured system which has redressed the sharp practices associated with the use of scratch cards.

We are aware of the teething problems attendant to the introduction of the new sale format, and as a responsive body, we have taken steps to ease the challenges and in a few days, the results would be a seamless registration exercise all over the country.

5.0 SUPVERISION OF THE UNIFIED TERTIARY MATRICULATION EXAMINATION
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has no university of its own. It is our desire that all concerned should take the UTME as their own and make it a project. The process and product of the examinee would end up in our various tertiary institutions and as such, we should be mindful of this process. Whatever level of preparation carried out by us towards the conduct of the 2017 examination, if it is not well supervised, it will not produce the kind of results we expect.

The Board is using this retreat to place a clarion call to all stakeholders to ensure that all hands are on deck to make the conduct of public examination better.

The conduct of the Board’s examination which is a selection examination is the foundation of the quality of education in Nigeria. In view of this, I urge you to see Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and your involvement as a call to national duty and personal sacrifice.

I therefore urge all stakeholders especially our tertiary institutions to be actively involved in the supervision of the Board’s examination which will at the end benefit all and boost the quality of candidates that will be admitted into various institutions.

No sacrifice in this regards would be too big or too small to make by you and all Nigerians, as no amount can be paid to you that is worth your integrity.

6.0 EXAMINATION SCHEDULES
A large number of candidates who register for the Board’s examination are those who are also taking their Senior School Certificate Examination. These candidates sit for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination usually need in March/April when they have not completed the syllabus of the public examinations. This contributes to some extent to the dismal performance of the candidates in the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.

What we have done this year is to ensure that the examination is scheduled in such a way that the candidates would be prepared and ready for both UTME and SSCE.

To achieve this, we met with other sister examination bodies and streamlined our timetables not only to ensure that candidates are prepared but also to avoid any clash of examination dates.

7.0 USE OF EIGHT KEYS WITHOUT A MOUSE
From the general feedback on the adoption of the Computer Based Test mode, we have noted the challenge of computer low level literacy of some candidates, especially with the phobia for the mouse. This has been responsible partly for the call by some people for reversal to the Paper and Pencil Test mode. In order to ensure equity and level playground for all candidates taking the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, the Board has designed a system that will allow candidates use only eight (8) keys without the use of the mouse.

All the candidates need to do is to press the letters A,B,C,D for responses (answer) to questions and keys:
P = Previous question
N = Next question
S = Submit responses when candidate has finished examination
R = Reverse (do not intend to go further to submit again)

8.0 EQUAL DISTRIBUTION OF CANDIDATES TO CENTRES
Following the standardisation of the Computer Based Test (CBT) centres in terms of carrying capacity of two hundred and fifty (250), candidates would be distributed evenly to all centres without any discrimination. No Centre would be favoured and no Centre would be discriminated against.

The examination Schedule, Timetable and Sessions have all been designed, streamlined and syncronised for the examination to start and end on the same day, except otherwise dictated by the number of candidates in a few states with low subscription.

9.0 NEW TRAINING MANUAL, FORMS AND ORGANOGRAM OF EXAMINATION OFFICIALS
From this year, the Board has automated different reporting forms for examination officials. These forms have been reviewed such that they are now designed to be responsive to issues at centres to serve as a quick signal for both the examination and Centre situations.

A new structure has also been put in place for the administration of the examination. We have introduced officials such as the Chief External Examiners, Zonal External Examiners, External Examiners, Peace Monitors etc.

All these categories of officials and their roles would be explained in the presentation that would follow shortly after these introduction and opening remarks.

10.0 AFFIRMATIVE INCLUSIVENESS FOR THE BLIND CANDIDATES
Please permit me, once again to salute and appreciate my predecessors in office for all the efforts that they put in place to take the Board to its present height. In particular, we note their efforts, commitment and passion for the candidates with different ability, especially the blind candidates. A lot of resources is committed every year for the conduct of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination for the blind candidates.

Meanwhile, in order to amplify the past efforts and also expand the frontiers of equity and inclusiveness, we have met with the Executive Committee of the Association of Blind Persons in Nigeria at the Board’s Headquarters in Abuja in February 2017 and we also met with prospective blind candidates from a school for the blind in Lagos about two weeks ago at the University of Lagos. The outcome of these meetings revealed that, while the challenged group fully appreciates the Board’s recent efforts at improving and upgrading the facilities for the administration of the Board’s examination for the blind candidates, with the purchase of sophisticated and expensive Braille Apex equipment, the paradox of it, is that we have put majority of the blind candidates at a disadvantage as many of them have never been exposed to these latest gadgets in the various schools.

Though, the Board also made efforts at training the blind candidates on the equipment before the examination, it is apparent that the two days to one week training and exposure to the sophisticated gadgets are inadequate and have little impact on them before the examination. The Association pleaded that the Board takes another look at our approach in order to have value for the resources that we are committing to their teaching, learning and assessment.

Firstly after our interaction, the Board appealed to some universities and other tertiary institutions to admit all the blind candidates that met the minimum requirement for registration in the 2016 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and I am happy to inform this august gathering that all candidates who fall into this category have been admitted. I thank the Vice Chancellors and Provosts who graciously partnered with us to admit the blind candidates into their institutions.

Secondly, the Board has approached the Digital Bridge Institute to partner with it to set up Visually Impaired Candidates centres where the blind candidates can be trained all year round and which can also serve as examination centres for them. The Institute has agreed to set up these dedicated centres in Abuja, Lagos and Kano in 2018 and the Board will support the centres with all necessary inputs that would make teaching, learning and assessment at the centres seamless. The centres would also have residential accommodation for the blind candidates and their guides.

Thirdly, having noted the complaints of the Association and looking forward to 2018 when the project of dedicated centres would come to fruition, the Board has reached an understanding with the Association for the Blind Persons in Nigeria and Blind students in Lagos, that an abridged approach would be used for the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, whereby, all prospective blind candidates would be invited to three centres in the country for special assessment in their subjects of choice that are relevant to their desired courses and programmes. The Board is reaching out to academics and counsellors in special education to handle this special assessment with each candidate.

The session would be interactive with the purview covering the Use of English and three subjects, just like the sighted candidate. The assessment would be scored and each candidate would be given his or her score. The outcome of the exercise and the ordinary level results in the Senior School Certificate Examination will form the basis for the recommendation of these candidates to the various tertiary institutions of their choices.

In addition, the Board shall be responsible for the transportation and accommodation of every blind candidate and one guide.

These affirmative actions of the Board for the differently abled persons are also part of our all-inclusive approach to all comers. Again and indeed, we are for everybody.

11.0 AWAITING RESULT
For the umpteenth time, I would want to use this opportunity to emphasize that awaiting result candidates are eligible to register and sit for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.

However, they would not be considered for admission on awaiting result status. The Board urges all candidates desirous of admission to upload their O’ level results on the Board’s portal the moment they receive them and before the commencement of admission exercise as their O’ level results would form a crucial part of their registration requirements.

12.0 CONCLUSION
In conclusion, this retreat’s objective is hinged on sensitisation of key stakeholders and on your responsibilities, not only to the Board but to the Nigerian Nation and to also alert you to the readiness of the Board’s enhanced inclusiveness in our approach at reassuring you that we are on this journey together and together we shall succeed.

Let me again thank you all for honouring our invitation to be here today. Your sacrifice to participate and contribute to the fine-tuning of the supervision and evaluation of the Board’s examination are clear demonstration of your deep interest in the development of education in Nigeria.

We are determined to make a change with this examination as we are aware of the strategic role our examination plays in deciding the direction of tertiary education in Nigeria. We appeal to you all to give us the required support.

At the end the various remarks, presentations, interaction and comments, we shall be breaking into syndicate groups where each cluster would discuss in deeper details the expected roles and obligations of each examination official. The guiding principle would be to formulate ideas and map out strategies that would ensure the maintenance and sustenance of the integrity of the Board’s examination and the sanctity of its process.

Thank you.

Professor Ishaq Oloyede, JAMB registrar, delivered this at the strategic planning retreat on monitoring and supervision of 2017 UTME held at Arewa House, Kaduna.
