CBT centers laud JAMB as 1.7m sit for 2022 UTME/DE

The 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and Direct Entry has commenced nationwide on a smooth note.

The exam which began yesterday, saw the Computer Based Test (CBT) centers operators applauding the board for the improved measures put in place for the conduct of the examination.

Some of the center operators said some of the technical challenges, especially the biometric verification experienced last year had been rectified.

When our reporter visited the WILLSTROM Limited CBT center located at Mambilla Barracks, Asokoro FCT, the administrator, Nwosu Ernest said JAMB has improved as the biometric hitches were minimal.

He said: By this time last year, almost six centers in FCT had issues on the first day of the examination. This year there is only one and it is from the center not on JAMB’s side.

A candidate who wrote in the first session at the center described the conduct of the examination as “smooth.”

However, many candidates missed the examination as a result of the early downpour in some parts of Lagos.

The candidates scheduled for the first session at 7.00 a.m. were mostly affected by the downpour, with some arriving late and being denied entry.
