JAMB Has Approved Nine CBT Centres For UTME In Ebonyi State – Jema Iheme



Mrs Jema Iheme, state Coordinator, Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has come out to say that the board has approved 9 Computer Based Test (CBT) centres in Ebonyi for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

Jema revealed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Abakaliki.

According to her, every centre can accommodate between 200 and 220 candidates for a section of the exam and it will be conducive enough.

She added that every section will last 120 minutes and there will be 3 sections per day on examination day.

His words, “Centres in some South-East states such as Imo, Enugu and Anambra have 250 capacity centers but due to the peculiar nature of Ebonyi, centres in the state would accommodate between 200 and 220 candidates per a section.

β€œThe body is set and fully prepared for the conduct of the examination which we anticipate will commence on March 14 and only students duly accredited will be allowed entry into the exam hall.”

“he pre-UTME or mock examination conducted by the exam body was optional and written by candidates who indicated interest while filling their examination entrance form.

β€œThe idea is to allow the candidates have a fore-knowledge of how the examination which is computer based looks like because some of them are not computer literate.

β€œWe also used the opportunity to test-run installations in these centres including sets of computers, internet connection, CCTV among others which will be deployed during the examination.

β€œEach of the centres has about 20 additional back-up computers in case of breakdown of any of the computers and also back-up generating set to supply power.”
