JAMB Releases Date for 2014 Examination

LAGOS FEBRUARY 14TH (URHOBOTODAY)-The Registrar of JAMB, Prof. Dibu Ojerinde, said on Thursday that the body’s paper-pencil test (PPT) and computer-based test (CBT) will hold on April 12 and May 17 respectively in 2,000 centres across the country.
Ojerinde stated this in a chat with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Bwari, Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

“We are ready for the examination even now; however we will give them time until April 12.
“We are going to do the examination on April 12, for paper, pencil and dual-based test all over the country, but the CBT (Computer-Based Test), will start on May 17, and it will continue for 12 days.
“In any case we are prepared; we have 300 centres for CBT while we have 2,000 centres for PPT (Paper-Pencil Test).
“This is the last time we are going to do PPT; it will be all CBT next year. We want education to move forward, one of the ways of moving it forward is to eradicate examination malpractice.
“That is our ambition and Nigeria will join the committee of nations in terms of technological development.”
Ojerinde enjoined candidates to study hard to be able to pass as it will use the PPT.
He, therefore, expressed the organisation’s resolve to eliminate examination malpractices.
The registrar explained that the choice of the CBT was to curb examination malpractices, release results at the same time and encourage candidates to prepare adequately.
