JAMB Cancels Examination at Lagos Centre
Some candidates who took part in the 2021 unified tertiary matriculation examination (UTME), which kicked off nationwide on Saturday, have experienced some difficulties in their attempts to sit the examination.
Technical challenges experienced by candidates at Certified Shipping Institute of Nigeria, Magbon, along Badagry expressway, led to the cancellation of examination at the centre.
The head of public affairs and protocol of the examination body, Fabian Benjamin, confirmed the development to our reporter on the phone.
Mr Benjamin said the affected candidates would be rescheduled by JAMB to sit the examination at a date to be announced soon.
“Yes, we are aware of the difficulty. The affected candidates will be rescheduled,” he said on the phone.
He, however, did not state whether the centre would continue to take part in the ongoing examination or not.
Man Shares Experience
Meanwhile, a guardian, who said he had accompanied a candidate to the centre, Andrew Adejo, said till around 3 p.m on Saturday when the cancellation was announced, no student was able to sit the exam at the centre.
He said; “The first batch of candidates were screened and allowed into the examination hall around 7 a.m but till around noon, the network was still said to be bad.
“The centre’s management initially came to announce that the problem was nationwide but when information started to filter in that candidates from other centres had no hitches, candidates, parents and guardians were charged and began agitation.”
