This year, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has taken steps to curb examination malpractice. Ahead of the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), JAMB has new rules and guidelines that may prevent students from cheating.
The new rules and guidelines, includes the adoption of CCTV cameras for all the CBT centres; adoption of a single hall containing 250 functional desktop or laptop computer systems with extra 25 as backups; that the computers must be minimum 15 inch screens and must be connected to robust computer server with capacity to carry a minimum of 250 systems concurrently; adoption of cabled Local Area Network (LAN) and not wireless connectivity.

Other guidelines are the adoption of cubicles with minimum length of 26 by 18 inches; adequate security with minimum of five technical personnel and a network engineer on site; availability of backup power supply (power generating set of minimum of 40KVA for a centre with 250 systems) and UPS/inverters that can carry all systems for a minimum of two hours; centres to have minimum of 250-capacity reception facility such as canopy with chairs; centres’ premises must be enclosed and must have adequate and functional air-conditioners, lighting, up-to-date antivirus and minimum of Windows 7, among others.
See below...
1. The adoption of CCTV cameras for all the CBT centres.

2. The adoption of a single hall containing 250 functional desktop or laptop computer systems with extra 25 as backups. The computers must be minimum 15 inch screens and must be connected to robust computer server with capacity to carry a minimum of 250 systems concurrently.

3. The adoption of cabled Local Area Network (LAN) and not wireless connectivity.

4. The adoption of cubicles with minimum length of 26 by 18 inches.

5. There will be adequate security with minimum of five technical personnel and a network engineer on site.

6. Availability of back-up power supply (power generating set of minimum of 40KVA for a centre with 250 systems) and UPS/inverters that can carry all systems for a minimum of two hours.

7. All the centres should have minimum of 250-capacity reception facility such as canopy with chairs.

8. All the centres’ premises must be enclosed and must have adequate and functional air-conditioners. The centres must also have lighting, up-to-date antivirus and minimum of Windows 7, among others.

Recall that last year, the board said it would no longer use scratch cards but would adopt “pin vending” for the 2017 UTME test. Dr. Fabian Benjamin, the head of media and information advised intending candidates to get familiar with the new approach.

The board also said it may cancel the use of general cut-off marks for candidates of the UTME.
