Dr Emmanuel Ndukwe, Chairman, Governing Board, Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has described the process and the conduct of the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) as credible.
He adjudged the exercise as the best in terms of administration and the level of technology deployed, even as he commended the Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede and his management team for delivering ‘credible and world-class assessment’.
The board chairman said that the delay in the release of results was deliberate, saying that it was meant to ensure that candidates involved in examination malpractices did not parade illicit results.
“The 2019 UTME was a remarkable exercise.
“I moved round to monitor the registration exercise across selected centres in the country with view to making sure that the policy of the Federal Government for creating access and equal opportunity to all candidates was not subverted.
Ndukwe also said that the tour around the computer-based test (CBT) centres was to ensure strict compliance with the government’s directives on the reduction of application and registration fees
