JAMB announces new guidelines for UTME


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Monday, announced new guidelines for future operational processes, including the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

JAMB confirmed this in its Weekly Bulletin of the Office of the Registrar in Abuja.

The board said the development was released in a communiqué issued at the end of a five-day brainstorming retreat for management staff held from Sept. 19 to Sept. 23 in Abuja.

It added that the modifications included new ways to further strengthen the conduct of the UTME accreditation centres, registration of candidates, examination process, results management and general administration.

“It became necessary for the board to modify its operations towards achieving far-reaching improvements on various issues emanating from the registration process and biometric challenges, among other operational procedures.

“Hence, no new Computer-Based Test centre would be accredited without meeting the new requirements.

“To this end, new CBT centres must use laptop computer systems as clients, zero thin-dients or Remote Desktop Protocol would no longer be accepted.”
