UTME 2020: Prof. Oloyede reveals how JAMB reduced malpractices as exams end Sunday

The Registrar, Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Isiaq Oloyede was more than fulfilled given the successful completion of the UTME 2020. The exams he said had been sufficiently successful as only very few hitches were recorded.

The Professor also attributed the hitches to human errors. Oloyede made this known while fielding questions from a programme anchor on Nigerian Television Authority.

Prof. Oloyede assured that those affected by the hitches would be treated on the basis of case-by-case analysis, and those having genuine cases would be allowed to write the exam on date to be assigned them.

Asked how JAMB was able to reduce scourge of examination malpractices in this year's UTME, the former University of Ilorin don said JAMB went in partnerships with the Computer Professionals Registration Council of Nigeria (CPN) who provided a personnel per centre that did not only record activities at these centres but also monitor the centres live from JAMB studios.

This procedure made the process of result verification easy as there was no need to waste time on watching videos of what transpired at the centres again the way it was done last year. It also quickened release of results. He repeated it that no results were cancelled.

The Registrar also revealed that all exams would come to conclusion in Bayelsa state tommorrow Sunday, 22nd March, 2020.
