Jamb: Cctv Will Be Deploy In Exam Hall For Invigilation Purposes

By | On January 21, 2017 (9 months ago)




Registrar and Chief Executive of the Joint

Admission and Matriculation Board, Prof. Is-haq

Oloyede, has said that candidates, who wish to

sit for the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation

Examination, will take the examination under the

surveillance of Closed Circuit Television Cameras.

Oloyede who stated this in a briefing in Abuja

said that the measure is aimed at preventing

examination malpractice during the UTME.

We believe that certain things should be done.

For example, we are conducting the Computer-

Based Test, Im not aware of anywhere in the

world where you do the CBT without CCTV. If you

are not caught during the examination, you can

be caught after the examination because the

whole thing will be under coverage.

And that is the one instrument that we have been

telling CBT operators in the last three weeks and

we are not going to compromise that, beginning

from the 2017 UTME, he said.

Oloyede noted that the measure had become

necessary to further strengthen public

examinations, particularly entry level examinations

into higher institutions.

According to him, operators of the CBT centres

who fail to comply with the order to install CCTV

cameras prior to the examination may not be

accredited for the UTME.

Oloyede cautioned parents, guardians and

candidates against patronising those he

described as fake vendors of UTME forms,

stressing that JAMB had neither started the sales

of the form nor authorised any Cyber Cafe

operator to sell the form on its behalf.

He also revealed that people who defrauded

members of the public through the sale of fake

UTME forms have been reported to the security

agencies, adding that the latter are under

instruction to arrest and treat such offenders


The JAMB Registrar said, I can say clearly that I

dont know when we are going to start the sales

of forms. All we want to do is to make sure that

things that ought to be in place are in place. I

cannot tell you exactly when it will be, but I know

that sales will commence sooner than later. Why

am I saying so? For instance, we are meeting

with the heads of other examination bodies.

We dont want a situation where pupils will be put

under pressure to give up either West African

Senior School Certificate Examination or National

Examination Council or any other examination

whenever they are taking place simultaneously.

That is one of the things we want to avoid.

Secondly, if we hold our examination at a time

when students are not ready, the result we get is

a high rate of failure. Our examination is a

ranking examination, not an achievement

examination. This is why we are saying that it is

not to extend the validity because the test is to

be taken just once.

What happens to you in a day can determine

whether you pass or fail. If someone quarrels

with someone else that day, that can affect his

performance, unlike achievement tests where

there are inbuilt mechanisms for continuous

assessment. We want to work with other

examination bodies to ensure that the interest of

the pupils is protected.
