JAMB: Around 84 000 people who took the rescheduled mock Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (mock UTME) have been told by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) that the test results will be made public later on Tuesday, April 18.
After overseeing the mock UTME on Tuesday in Abuja, JAMB Registrar Prof. Ishaq Oloyede assured journalists that precautions had been taken to guarantee that participants in the exercise received their results before the end of the day.
According to him, the exercise was carried out at 387 Computer-Based Tests (CBT) centers around the nation, with two sessions at 16 of the centers. But, today would see the release of the test’s results. The results for the candidates would be announced today. They number only 84,000.
While thanking the applicants for their patience as the board decided to reschedule the exam for Tuesday, Prof. Oloyede explained that the issues that were previously noticed in the mock-UTME in some centers and caused it to be rescheduled were caused by the deployment of innovations.
He complimented the kids for their patience while they conducted trial tests. “Wr said that we were advancing to a new level, and by God’s help, I believe we have now reached the new level. Having identified the items we needed to test, we went back and double-checked that everything was functioning as intended.
We will continue to concentrate on the cable-related problems you referred to as the network in the center.
There may be a few centers where we have one or more issues, but we will overcome them.
For instance, we have decided that all zero-thin clients (computers that rely on a central server but have no CPU identification and share the same IP address) would need to change if they want to stay on our network.
According to real-time data from all CBT centers nationwide, according to JAMB’s Director of Information Technology Services (ITS), Fabian Okoro, the exam went off without a hitch.
At the first mock exam, we tested new features and looked for flaws, he said. We went back to the drawing board and made the required adjustments, and it was successful.
