JAMB Conducts Accreditation Exercise for CBT Centres
The five-day exercise which started on Wednesday, 17th February 2021, and ended on Friday, 22nd February 2021, was aimed toward determining the suitability of the old and new examination centres.
The Registrar, Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, in his brief remarks on the occasion, said centre accreditation and validation is that the initiative towards the commencement of the 2021/22 UTME/DE exercise.. 2021 UTME Candidates are therefore advised to start out preparing for his or her exams using the JAMB CBT computer software’s and JAMB CBT mobile app
According to him, he expects that this year’s exercise would record even greater successes. In effect, if a centre falls below expectations, it shouldn’t be accredited because if such a centre is found to be defective, an enormous interrogation point is placed on your grading and integrity as a team.”
Speaking also, the JAMB’s Director of data Technology said the board added some new guidelines for CBT centres which include but not limited to a redesigned form that might mandate new and old CBT centres to provide the National number (NIN) of their designated officials adding that any CBT centre that flouts this directive through providing fake NIN, among others, would be sanctioned. Other guidelines include the submission of registration details of any particular centre with the company Affairs Commission (CAC) for personal centres and people privately-owned but located within the campuses of tertiary institutions. Mr. Okoro also notified that the CTAs that the Board frowns at centres sharing premises because it preferred them to be stand-alone entities.
Mr. Okoro involved a more spacious holding room to suits relevant protocols on COVID-19 particularly with reference to social distancing. Other things that the CTAs had to see, consistent with the Director, include inhouse restrooms within the examination hall to stop impersonation and reckless movements.
The Director also stressed that the Board wouldn’t accept anything but the Windows 10 OS. Additionally, he urged CTAs to tell centres that only a consistent white background should be used while taking the candidates’ passports as that might bring a clearer picture. The Director said of these measures were intended to forestall failure from any CBT centre, while announcing that about 654 old centres and 119 new centres would be accredited within the exercise.
