Out of the more than 800 centers that applied, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has authorized 600 in total.
At a meeting in Lagos with all state commissioners for education, the board’s Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, promised them that the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) will go off without a hitch.
In the board’s weekly bulletin, it’s spokesperson, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, stated that the board was prepared to start the procedures for the examination scheduled for February 14 and reaffirmed that it will not conflict with the general elections.
He stated that the board has pledged to address the majority of the difficulties encountered during the administration of previous exams.
The meeting, according to Oloyede, informed the commissioners of JAMB’s level of readiness and asked for their support. It also made clear that the nationwide establishment of top-notch Computer Based Test (CBT) centers is here to stay.
He said, “We showed them the result of the 2023 centre accreditation for the conduct of the examination. A total of 600 centres have been approved, out of the over 800 that applied.”
The amount is 140 fewer than the total people who participated in the activity in 2022. As a result, it is anticipated that fewer employees would be employed.
