The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is to delist all Computer-Based Test Centres that failed during the 2022 UTME exercise.
Consequently, all centres which were not able to perform optimally to the approved capacities leading to the painful reduction of their capacities to conduct the 2022 UTME to specification would also be delisted. However, those centres which experienced the same challenges the previous year but were pardoned yet failed to address their failings would be permanently delisted.
The Board, in a statement made available
to JAMB Bulletin at the end of its post-examination Management committee meeting, stated that the drastic measure became imperative as the preparation for the 2023 UTME began right from the last day of the 2022 examination.
The statement noted with satisfaction that in general, the 2022 UTME was adjudged to be better by far in terms of not only the least number of malpractice cases ever recorded but also in the overall deliverables of the exercise. The Board expressed its readiness to surpass this record in subsequent exercises.
