JAMB management assures a hitch free UTME in May 2022



The management of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has made this known in its Weekly Bulletin of the Office of the Registrar in Abuja on Monday, its optimism for a hitch-free examination scheduled for May.

Following the success recorded in the mock UTME which was held on Saturday, April 9, the board assured it was ready to deliver a seamless exercise in its main examination, in all its 757 centres across the country. The 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination is scheduled to hold between May 6 and May 16.

”At the post-examination analysis held to conduct a post mortem of the examination, the Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, disclosed that the mock examination, conducted in 757 centres across the nation, was held with little or no hitches,” the statement said, reiterating the board was keen to deliver the most seamless examination ever, come May 6.

The statement also quoted the registrar as advising proprietors of Computer Based Tests centers nationwide, not to rest on their oars, but consolidate on the success recorded in the mock exercise and must deliver a better outcome in the main examination in May.

He stated that the mock examination was conducted to run a test on its facilities and be sure of its readiness for the main UTME, as much as to provide candidates with the opportunity to experience the testing system and how to apply it in the main examination.

”Taking the mock examination had proved to be one of the most effective tests of readiness for the main examination,” Oloyede said.
