DO NOT USE COMPUTER-BASED TEST (CBT) FOR THE 2013 UTME – HOUSE TELLS JAMB

February 7, 2013

the House of Representatives has directed the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to suspend its newly introduced computer-based test (CBT) for the 2013 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) scheduled for Saturday, April 27.

The lawmakers have therefore asked JAMB to revert to its paper and pencil-based examinations. They cited inadequate sensitisation and preparation, as well as lack of necessary infrastructure in secondary schools as reasons for arriving at the decision.

The House equally summoned the Minister of Education, Professor Rukayyatu Rufa’i and the Registrar of JAMB, Professor Dibu Ojerinde, to provide explanations on what it tagged, “policy somersault” in view of the CBT introduced by the board. The duo is also expected to explain the law through which they derived the powers to contractout the conduct of examinations to private firms.

The resolution was as a result of a motion moved under matters of urgent public importance by Honourable Aliyu Madaki, where he kicked againstthe development. The lawmaker in his motion argued that there was no justifiable reason behindthe change in take-off of the policy from 2013 to 2015, stating that the firms to which the exercise was contracted to were also yet to be made public.
