One of the biggest news coming out of the much-awaited June 24th Policy meeting held in FCT Abuja is the fact that the next jambites may likely enter the examination hall with their smartphones. Sorry, they can authoritatively write the JAMB examination with their smartphones!
The latest report reaching us today, is that the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is working tirelessly to introduce something new to all prospective candidates sitting for the forthcoming JAMB examination.
According to the JAMB registrar, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) management board has proposed the use of mobile phones for the next edition of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) using the newly introduced Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) system.
For those of you who are not yet aware, the candidate who scored the highest mark in the just concluded JAMB 2023 examination is a girl, named Nkechinyere. Miss Umeh Kamsiyochukwu Nkechinyere, a female candidate from Anambra state, is the best candidate in the 2023 UTME, with a 360 out of 400 scores!
This brilliant genius, Miss Umeh Kamsiyochukwu Nkechinyere participated in the JAMB Examination in Ogun State, and applied to the University of Lagos (UNILAG) to study Chemical Engineering.
Closely following her, is a brilliant male candidate from Edo State, Aguele Stephen Oseruha, who was confirmed by JAMB as second best in the just concluded 2023 examination, scoring 358.
He sat for the examination in Edo State and applied to the University of Benin (UNIBEN) to study Computer Engineering.
Oseruha was closely followed by another male candidate, Ositade Oluwafemi Anthony, who hails from Ogun State and took the examination in his state (Ogun State), scoring a whooping 358/400, and is aiming to study Computer Engineering at the University of Lagos (UNILAG).
JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, disclosed the information at the opening ceremony of the 2023 Policy Meeting which was held in FCT Abuja on Saturday, 24th of June 2023.
The 2023 Policy Meeting is made up of Vice Chancellors (VC’s) of tertiary institutions in the country and they are expected to deliberate and decide on criteria for 2023 admission into all the tertiary institutions.
Though the ages of candidates who are seeking admission into the University of Lagos (UNILAG) were not mentioned by the Registrar, it’s a well-known fact that UNILAG doesn’t offer admission to candidates below the age of sixteen (16), irrespective of UTME score.
