The board announced this in its Weekly Bulletin of the Office of the Registrar, made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on 13th December 2021 in Abuja.
JAMB said as part of its preparations for the 2022 UTME, it had concluded arrangements to validate and accredit CBT centres to be used for the exercise.
It explained that the development followed the outcome of its virtual meetings with its Chief Technical Advisers, Zonal Directors, State Coordinators and Technical Officers for the accreditation of the board’s examination centres.
JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, was quoted as saying that “the validation exercise is necessary to assess the conduct of the 2021 UTME and to look at those areas requiring improvement”.
He added: “The exercise, which would commence immediately after the modalities are defined, is to ensure, among other things, that only centres that are 100 per cent ready would be used for the UTME.
This is in addition to giving other new ones the opportunity to showcase their capacity and be included, if found suitable, while ensuring that any centre that is lacking in terms of technical and infrastructural specifications is excluded from the exercise.
