The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says seventy-eight accredited Computer Based Test (CBT) centers in Lagos are fully ready to conduct the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) starting from April 11.
The Coordinator, JAMB Lagos office, Babatunde Bamisaye, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Tuesday.
Bamisaye spoke on the sideline of the matriculation of newly admitted students at the Federal College of Education (Technical), Akoka, Yaba, for the 2018/2019 academic session.
“As far as Lagos is concerned, as at today, we have 78 accredited centers and all of them are fully ready with their personnel on ground. The board had visited the centers and certified them technically fit to conduct the examination.
“The Lagos office of the board had also been able to resolve complaints brought before it by intending candidates as the Servicom and Public Relations division of the board was dedicated to treat such cases,” he stated.
“We have been solving their problems and maybe one or two problems we are unable to solve locally, we refer it online to the head office for necessary attention,” he added.
He, however, warned candidates not to attempt to bring items such as glasses, scientific wrist watches that were banned by the board to the examination premises, saying that they were unacceptable.
