The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) yesterday conducted the mock Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) across the country.
The board also cancelled a center in Okene, Kogi State that was said to have fallen short of expectations. The registrar, Professor Is-haq Oloyede made the remarks at a media briefing shortly after inspecting some Computer Base Test (CBT) centers in Abuja. He said the mock exam was organised in 633 centers across the country to test run the board’s computer system ahead of the real UTME.
The registrar also said a CBT center in Okene that did not have enough computers for the examination was cancelled. He said the owner ‘borrowed computers’ to deceive the board into accrediting the center and assigning 250 candidates each for three sessions to it. But on the day of the mock exam “only 50 computers were found there and the center had to be cancelled. Candidates were moved to other centers,” he said.
