Ahead of the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, the Lagos State Coordinator of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, Sunday Aladegbaye, has revealed plans put in place by the examination body to ensure the smooth running of the examination process.
Sunday Alegbeleye while speaking on the sideline of the Parents’ Forum organised by the Management of the King’s College in Lagos noted that a repeat of last year’s incompetence will not be witnessed in the upcoming examinations.
He further added that there will be no compromise in the accreditation process of centres whih will be eligible to accommodate students for the examination.
Sunday Alegbeleye further added that measures to avoid technical errors are being put in place ahead of the exams to prevent problems such as malfunctioning of computers and poor power supply.
He said: “We have taken time to go round designated centres in states, in order to ascertain the level of functionality of their computers, the backups and other requirements.
“Where we find missing gap, we drop such centres immediately and those that meet requirements, we recommend them to management.
“We will continue to insist on accreditation of well-equipped centres; no more, no less.
“This is because, as a parent myself, I will not do anything that will compromise the future of my children.”
