JAMB UTME 2017 Change Of Course/Institution | Closure of 2017 UTME Change Of Course/Institution – Jamb has denied the rumor going around that the 2017 Jamb UTME Change Of Course/Institution has commenced, the Jamb registrar Prof. Is-haq Olarewaju Oloyede made the announcement during an interview with our correspondent. Once the 2017 Jamb UTME Change Of Course/Institution kick off we will update you. You can be checking this portal on regular basis for an update.
The report reaching us confirmed that the Joint Admission Matriculation Board has suspended the 2017 Correction Of Data activities on its portal till further notice.
The Correction of Data involves the activities of Change of Course/Institutions for aspirants who wish to switch to other institution or programmes due to mistakes or unforeseen circumstances.
One of the reasons which led to the suspension of the correction was the abuse of JAMB CBT Accredited Centers, many reports has it that students were been extorted for the services which is supposed to be 2,500.
The Joint Admission Matriculation Board therefore wishes to inform all candidates who are interested in the services that they should be patient as the portal has been removed and suspended from their website.
The Registrar while addressing students today in Ikoyi made it known that the portal will be re-opened soon and enough room given for all candidates to effect changes.
JAMB UTME 2017: ANOTHER HARVEST OF ERRORS
The Board conducted the 2016 exercise in about 521 centres globally. Let us assume without conceding that we have challenges in about 100 centres. Could this be said that the Board lacks capacity? Should we not be calling for a review of the exercise to see how these presumed challenges could be addressed?
It appears the media world prefers the Board not correcting the error(s). However, with all the hues and cries over this year’s exercise, the good news is that not a single compliant has been recorded from any candidate over inability to use the computer to write the examination. This fear has been overcome and with the active support of all the components of Nigeria, we will also overcome the little teething technical challenge.
