House of Reps Orders JAMB To Revert To Paper-Pencil Test

Latest report reaching us at has it that House of Representatives has asked the Federal Ministry of Education to direct the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to revert to pencil-paper method in the conduct of 2017 UTME or adopt both the PPT and CBT (Computer-Based Test) so that candidates can opt for any of the two.

This followed a motion moved by a lawmaker from Lagos State, Mr. Oghene Emma-Egoh, on the “conflicting” scores of candidates who took the examination.

The law maker stressed that the technical errors experiences during the examination has invariably dashed the hopes of many of these candidates in gaining admission in this 2016/17 academic session.

Due to the technical flaws that marred the conduct of the 2016 UTME, the house of Representatives is of the opinion that JAMB does not have the capacity to manage and conduct the Computer Based Test.
