Nigerian entrance examination board for tertiary level institutions, joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is the official body charged with conduct of entrance unified tertiary matriculation examination for prospective undergraduates into Nigeria tertiary institutions.
Before now, mode of examination for entrance into tertiary institutions being conducted by JAMB is paper & pencil mode.
This mode of examinations is considered manual when compare to what obtains now in the examination. In the past, due to manual system of writing the examination, it takes months before the results are released.
Also, impersonation and all forms of malpractices were some of the ills that characterized the examination during paper and pencil Era.
Furthermore, with high increase in number of prospective undergraduates, the burden of logistics for the conduct of the paper & pencil mode of unified tertiary and matriculation examination was becoming difficult task for the examination body.
With improvement in technological advancement, it was only a matter of time before the JAMB will switch its mode of conduct of examinations from manual to electronics.
This is a system that has lots of advantages over the previous paper and pencil system. With the computer based examination, huge resources being spent annually on examination paper will be saved.
Also with the introduction of biometrics during the registration, impersonation was also eliminated. More importantly, it became easier and faster to collate the results and release them within shortest possible time.
Today, it is easier to conduct and release results of the examination. Nevertheless, the current computer based test regime of the examination is not without setback and flaws.
Having and providing reliable Information and communication technology (ICT) centers where thousands of these young prospective undergraduates with take their examination seamlessly have become a daunting task.
This situation is what necessitated this article. Since the CBT regime, there have been reoccurring reports of some accredited ICT centers for the examination not living up to the expected standard.
There have been reports of faulty computers seen in some centers, power failure witnessed and unstable network among other numerous complaints.
However, JAMB the examination body has risen up to tackle some of these issues by conducting a serious accreditation and re- accreditation of some of the would be used centers for these examination.
