The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said that it had concluded plans for an interactive meeting with owners of Computer Based Test centres (CBT) in the country ahead of the 2017 UTME.
This disclosure was made in a statement issued by the board’s Head, Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, in Lagos on Monday and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
In the statement, the meeting which comes up on Tuesday at the University of Lagos is aimed to fine tune all areas of challenges geared towards conducting a hitch-free examination in 2017.
Mr Benjamin, in the statement, said that the meeting would determine the number of centres to be used for the 2017 all CBT Unified Tertiary Matriculation Board exercise.
The statement added: “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.’’
The statement said that the board would commence the sale of application forms soon and urged prospective candidates not to patronise any self-acclaimed agent as the board had not and would not appoint any.
It urged candidates to always visit the board’s website for information.
