JAMB SETS TO CONDUCT 2022 CENTRE VALIDATION AND ACCREDITATION EXERCISE
As part of its preparations for the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has concluded all arrangements to validate and accredit centers to be used for the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination(UTME).
At the final briefing for Chief Technical Advisers, Zonal Directors, State Coordinators, and Technical Officers for the accreditation of the Board’s examination centers on Wednesday, 8th December 2021, the need for thoroughness in the conduct of the exercise was emphasized. The final briefing, which was hosted virtually from the Board’s National Headquarters, discussed the modalities for the accreditation of centers to be used for the conduct of the 2022 UTME.
The Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, while declaring the meeting open, said, “The exercise is necessary to assess the conduct of the 2021 UTME as well as look at those areas requiring improvement.”
The validation exercise, which would commence immediately after the modalities are defined, is to ensure, among other things, that only centers that are 100% ready would be used for the exercise in addition to allowing other new ones to showcase their capacity and be included if found suitable while ensuring that any center that is lacking in terms of technical and infrastructural specifications is excluded from the exercise.
The various stakeholders to engage in this exercise were urged to ensure that all the rules guiding the validation of centers are followed the letter without any form of sentiments or compromise.
