JAMB set to commence accreditation of CBT centres for 2022 UTME


As part of its preparations for the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has concluded all arrangements to validate and accredit centres to be used for the exam.

The final briefing, which was hosted virtually from the Board’s National Headquarters, discussed the modalities for the accreditation of centres to be used for the conduct of the 2022 UTME.

The Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, while declaring the meeting open, said, “The exercise is necessary so as to assess the conduct of the 2021 UTME as well as look at those areas requiring improvement.”

Putting the stakeholders through the guidelines and requirements for the accreditation exercise, Director, Information Technology Services (ITS), Mr Fabian Okoro, announced that there would be about six centres across the six geopolitical zones which would be used to test run the new-age technology which the Board is hoping to deploy. The Chief Technical Advisers (CTA) were mandated to ensure that thorough checks on the CCTV installations and other security devices of the various centres are carried out. Mr Okoro also said, “If centres are not adequately covered, centre owners must make provisions to install more cameras as remote monitoring of the examination is non-negotiable.”

The Director (ITS), stressed that all the computer systems must be on a Local Area Network stressing that wireless network would not be acceptable by the Board. Other guidelines included the need for all centres to be well-fenced and not in a shared location with any other business outfit, adequate backup systems should be provided, the power supply should be up and active and that every centre should have functional air conditioners.
