IGP to investigate JAMB examination invasion

INSPECTOR-General of Police (IGP), Hafiz Ringim, has assured the Registrar of the Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof ‘Dibu Ojerinde that his men would soon bring to book one Mr. Osamah and eight others.

The suspects reportedly invaded Uratta, Imo State during the examination and unleashed terror on JAMB officials while conducting the UTME on Saturday, April 17, 2010.

According to the JAMB spokesperson, Mr. Timothy Oyedeji, the promise was given by the IGP on the heels of a working visit to the Louis Edet House by a JAMB delegation.
The JAMB officials had used the forum to solicit the force’s cooperation in all public examinations to be conducted by it.

Speaking at the Nigeria Police Headquarters, Louis Edet House, Abuja, the JAMB boss enumerated some initiatives already incorporated into future examinations that would curb the menace of malpractice in the JAMB’s examinations to include Biometric Capture – thumb-printing means of verifying all candidates before they would be allowed to write future examinations and ultimately e-examination.

He pleaded with the IGP, to appreciate that without the police support, no meaningful efforts at curbing examination malpractice can stand the test of time considering the criminality and the sophistication culprits have brought into the menace.

While recognising the critical role of the police, in making JAMB sacrosanct and credible, the Registrar described the role of the police as highly commendable, even in the face of limited personnel available for deployment to all examination centres across the country.

“This difficult position informed JAMB requesting from complements from the Nigeria Civil Defence and Security Corps (NCDSC)”, he said.

Prof Ojerinde informed the IGP that it was in recognition of the ever-important role of the Police in ensuring credible elections in April 2011 that some of JAMB officials involved in examination supervision would also be involved with the elections was the primary reason why JAMB decided to defer 2011 UTME till June 11, 2011.

Responding on behalf of the IGP, Mrs. Ivy U. Okoronkwo, a Deputy Inspector-General of Police (DIG) ‘A’ Dept, promised not to leave any stone unturned in the investigation of the reported case.

She assured the JAMB team of her boss’ commitment to unravel those responsible for the act and bring the culprits to book to serve as deterrent to others in the near future.

She reiterated that the Force remained the de facto body charged with the “responsibility of crime prevention, maintenance of peace and protection of life and property and that any other agency of government can only complements our efforts within their various constitutional limits”.

Some Universities Up Till Now Charge High - POST UME PALAVA

The rate at which the tertiary institutions are matking money nowadays are becoming alarming everyday.The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has berated some universities in the country for charging outrageous fees for the post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (post-UTME) in defiance to Federal Government’s directive.

Based on the insistence of some universities to conduct the Post-UTME, the Federal Government had pegged the fee payable by candidates at N1, 000 only.

But some universities up till now, charge as high as N3,000 to N4, 500 for Post-UTME.

JAMB registrar and chief executive, Professor ‘Dibu Ojerinde, in a statement in Abuja on Sunday, said the action of some of the universities was condemnable and must be stopped.

Signed by the Public Relations Officer of the board, Mr. Timothy Oyedeji, Ojerinde maintained that the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) remained the recognised examination required for admission into all tertiary institutions in Nigeria.

The New Online Tutor For Nigeria Students - eJamb

It is no longer a news that online test has been introduced into the Nigerian educational system. Students and graduates that desired to be in the Universities and other institutions can now use the new online test tutor named E-JAMB .

This is fist of its kind in the country and will surely help the students to succeed both on short and long terms. This is produced by Elnuk Laboratories, a Nigerian-registered company that provides integrated online products and services to address the needs of students, parents, educators and educational institutions in African countries.

According to the CEO of Elnuk Laboratories, Mr. Kunle Aromolaran said..."The product was a must-have for those preparing for the 2011 and subsequent editions of the annual Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME,  conducted annually for hopefuls of tertiary education in the country by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board."

To ensure that internet savvy pupils have a better and faster way of preparing for the Universities Matriculation Examination, a group called Elnuk Labs, has created an online preparation service, ‘e JAMB,’that would be available to the general public via the internet.

The Managing Director, Elnuk Labs, Mr. Kunle Aromolaran, at a news conference in Lagos State, said that pupils would now have the ability to stimulate the JAMB examination in a timed environment so that they could estimate the average time they spend on each question and work on improving their speed of answering questions.

“Also, pupils would be able to get immediate feedback on test results including a systematic topic breakdown to show performance by topic. Study plans tailored to each student’s study needs would also be made available,” he said.

Aromolaran said that the main objective behind creating the service was to form an intersection between technology and education. “Millions of university- bound young pupils in Nigeria have got accustomed to using the internet for their basic communication needs such as Email and Instant Messaging. While the internet infrastructure in this part of the world has improved dramatically in the last few years, the content available on it to this demographic group has lagged significantly especially in the area of learning.”

The managing director said that it was high time we created a culture of ‘e-learning.’ “E-learning is about the application of Information and Communication Technology, ICT. It will enhance efficiency and quality in all areas of our education system. We must pool our resources to ensure that this is deployed without delay.”

Aromolaran added that the service would give visibility to high school and tertiary institutions’ entrance education system in Nigeria by allowing pupils from anywhere in the world to view or take UME past questions without physically being in Nigeria.

Meanwhile, Aromolaran has said that the online preparation service consists of over 20 years worth of past questions compiled by external UME markers across the nation. He said the service would be made available this month.

All my research to locate the website address of the e-jamb service(s) has proved abortive. But keep your eyes close to our blog and you will be updated when it is out. "It will truly helps the students to achieve tremendous success as I see it in my own view" said Dr. Babs Of

All About Unilag Post Jamb 2011/2012

The University of Lagos - popularly known as Unilag - is a federal government university with a main campus located at Akoka, Yaba and a college of medicine located at Idi-Araba, all in Lagos, Lagos State, southern Nigeria.It do takes about 2-3 weeks after JAMB EXAMINATION has taken place. You will have to continue studying. But according to my experience and talks I have heard about Unilag Post UME. The question that are set are only questions from other past post ume that will be twisted in another form. That implies that they(the lecturer and other examination bodies) are giving out same question all the time. All you have to do is to decode the trick of manipulating question. Read and understand each question before you tick the answer in your sheet. That is part of the reason why you all hear the saying among students " ENI TO MOWE, LO MO WAY" which means "IF YOU KNOW YOUR BOOKS, YOU WILL KNOW YOUR WAY".

I wish you the best of luck.
