The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has said arrangements had been concluded to have an interaction with owners of Computer Based Test (CBT) centres in the country ahead of the 2017 UTME.
The board’s Head, Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, made the disclosure in a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.
According to the statement, the meeting which comes up today at the University of Lagos, is to fine tune all areas of challenges geared towards conducting a hitch-free examination in 2017.
It said the meeting would determine the number of Centres to be used for the 2017 all CBT Unified Tertiary Matriculation Board (UTME) exercise.
It said: “These are centres that must have a minimum of 250 and above terminals (computers). “We will not hesitate to disqualify any centre that falls short of the requirements.” “We will equally not compromise on the selection of these centres as they will fully be responsible for our registration and examinations and other related responsibilities that they will be saddled with from time to time as we introduce new measures’’.
It added that the board decided to come face to face with owners of these centres to ensure it got first-hand information on the challenges they face in the course of the examinations.
