Jamb Crisis: Candidates Besiege Jamb Office To Collect Their Slips

The pandemonium witnessed at various offices of the Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board nationwide last week over its inability to release the examination date and centre slips to candidates was shameful. Hundreds of candidates seeking to write the 2015/16 Computer-Based Test (CBT) of the University Matriculation Examinations (UME) staged protests at different centres across the country against the delay and non-issuance of the examination date and centre e-slips. This was for an examination that was billed to take place only a few days away.

JAMB has conducted the matriculation examinations long enough to know the kind of challenges to expect and how to tackle them without subjecting their candidates to the anguish they went through last week just to receive basic information regarding the examination. The mistake or whatever it was that caused the crisis was indefensible and must be prevented in future.
