JAMB CBT TO BE CANCELLED, JAMB REGISTRAR SACKED
SCHOOL GIST NOW ON JAMB: FOLLOWING A RECENT GROUP PROTEST BY THE African Community Impact and Development Network (Afri-CID), the existence of CBT test for JAMB exams has been put under probability.
The group which staged a protest at Abuja on Thursday, July 20, claimed that an investigation it carried out on the 2017 exercise showed that the CBT was a complete failure giving several complains and difficulties faced by candidates.
The group’s executive director, Lawrence Audu, bemoaned the failure of some banks to generate PINs for candidates while advising them to wait for an email which they alleged was never received.
He added that in some cases, some students were completely disenfranchised from the exercise, while some candidates did not even receive their result confirmation at the end of the exercise. He also said that the inadequacy of CBT centers in most states, slow speed of internet services at the centers coupled with the level of computer literacy in the country were issues that needed to be addressed before embarking on such transition.
“We pass a vote of no confidence in Professor Oloyede for this demonstration of gross incompetence which has led to this abysmal failure of his organisation to conduct a credible exercise and call for his resignation with immediate effect”
