JAMB spokesman said in future, candidates will write their UTME at home once the exam body get the technology to do so.
JAMB's spokesperson, Dr Fabian Benjamin made this known on Monday, March 12, 2018, while featuring on Rock City FM Day Break Show, in Abeokuta.
According to Benjamin, JAMB is thinking of open book examinations that will allow candidates to write the examination from their houses, adding that JAMB is looking forward to getting the technology to facilitate it.
Speaking about the challenges facing candidates in the ongoing UTME, Benjamin said: “At any point, if there is an issue, we find a way to solve it to ensure all candidates write the UTME with convenience.”
Benjamin also said that the results of the exam would be delayed as there was a need to preview before releasing them.
“Once a candidate clicks submit, the result is ready but we wait to preview the results before releasing so we don’t cancel results later. You can detect malpractice even after exams.”
The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB Registrar, Prof Ishaq Oloyede had recently announced that it will take two or three days to release the results.
The 2018 edition of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination which started on Friday, March 9, 2018, will end on Saturday, March 17.
