The House of Representatives Thursday summoned the Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof Dibu Ojerinde, over mass failure by candidates in the last Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
The recently released result of the examination showed many students scoring below 150, out of the 400 marks based on the four papers each of the candidates sat for. Chairman, House Committee on Education, Hon. Aminu Suleiman (PDP Kano), said yesterday that the summons became imperative due to series of complaints and protests by a cross section of Nigerians. Said he: “We heard that JAMB authorities had formally explained some reasons for the mass failure. This is not enough if the content of the complaints of Nigerians is anything to go by.
One of the complaints was that concerning the usage of computer for the exam that
most of them had never had contact with before. According to him:“It can be recalled that the House passed a resolution asking JAMB not to use computer for the 2013 exams and they said they would make it optional; but there were still complaints by candidates that some of them filled the manual or paper option only to find themselves being asked to write the exams using computers,”.
He added that the mass failure might not be unconnected with the introduction of computers for the exams, bearing in mind that most candidates especially from Government secondary schools were not exposed to computer before.
He further said the committee had no option that to act accordingly to work towards finding a lasting solution to the perennial failures of JAMB candidates.
Following the release of results for the just-written Jamb UTME exams, these are the cut-off marks for the various tertiary institutions across the country.
> University of Port Harcourt, UNIPORT: 200 and above for Dentistry,Pharmacy, Engineering (except Civil & Environmental Engineering), Management Sciences,Medicine, Nursing and Social Sciences; 180 and above for others are invited to a Screening Exercise First Choice and Second Choice.
The 2013 JAMB UTME for candidates that attempted the exam via PPT mode of testing was conducted on Saturday, 27th of April, 2013. After the exam, the Joint Admissions Matriculation Board (JAMB) told newsmen that 2013 UTME results will be released to candidates the 3rd day after the exam. Meaning that, the 2013 UTME results is now OUT.
Good news guys.. whether you succeeded in activating magicsim or not, I have good news for you guys. You Mtn BBC is now #1000 and Bis now #1,500. I chatted with them few minutes ago and the Mtn official who attended to me said they just changed their price tag on blackberry subscription. To crown it all, it is unlimited. Don’t waste your precious money buying any data cap again, just subscribe for any of the two packages above and continue surfing till your Mumsi call. Bis was formally #3,000 while BBC was #1,500. The table is gradually turning; but i am still waiting for time blackberry subscription in Nigeria will be #200 for 2months. With BIS you can activate 10 email account, while with BBC you can activate only 1 email account.

This tweak goes to all my Glo subscribers who are late comers like me. It’s been on since 15th of April. I call it Glo Multipliers Effect. Multiply your Mb until it get to Terra bytes. Did I just said Terabytes? Yes terabytes. Though I am not a Glo fan but I just have to opt in 3days ago when my inbox was full with about 30 Glo users asking for latest tweak on Glo.
To my surprise, I got 6GB today alone; the sad news was that I have to finish it this same day if not it will just expire. This w as what I did with my 6GB, I downloaded the complete latest version of “Too Fast Too Furious” which was about 3GB. The rest is history.
Glo users, please don’t kill our Network ooo. I will release the tweak right about now.
G-Bam Hi 5ive allows subscribers to call five special numbers at only five kobo per second and enjoy 5MB free browsing every day. But you need to download with wisdom.
- Dial the above code several times and you will receive sms telling you that “you are already on the selected profile”, but ignore it and keep dialing it. The more you dial, the higher your Mb.
- To check for your balance, dial *127*0#
