JAMB Introduces Upgraded Technologies For Better Performance
.. As Oloyede Assures of Improved Services in 2020 And Beyond
As the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations, UTME, progresses throughout the country, the field reports from our various Corresspondents monitoring the UTME indicated tremendous improvement in the biometric verification of the candidates across various centres among other activities just as the Registrar, Joint Admission and Matriculation Board JAMB, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede has assured of an upward review and upgrading of technologies to be used in the 2020 UTME.
He made this disclosure recently during a webinar briefing with officers involved in the examination.
Oloyede assured all stakeholders that the Biometric Verification Machine (BVM) are being upgraded to forestall any form of malfunctioning in the remaining days of the examination; starting Monday, March 16.
Oloyede added that, two BVM can be used concurrently, to sign-in and sign-out to fast attack the process. And this has really helped as witnessed in many places.
He advised candidates whose fingerprints could not be captured by the BVM not to panic. He assured that, although they would not be able to write the examination on their scheduled dates for not being screened, adequate provisions have been put in place to ensure fair treatment for all.
The 2020 UTM examination started across the country on Saturday, March 14, 2020.
The two sessions in most centres on Saturday, had delays caused by technical hitches whichwere promptly rectified.
While expressing the commitment of the Board to ensure smooth conduct of the examination, he sought the cooperation of all stakeholders to make the aspiration a reality.
During our visits to some of the accredited CBT centres today, it was observed that things were actually getting a lot easier and far better off in terms of biometric verification for pre and post examinations.
Many parents were seen waiting for their wards under the sun, shades of trees and in cars.
