JAMB 2018 CONDUCTS UTME IN 8 FOREIGN COUNTRIES:The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says it has recorded a huge success in the conduct of Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) in eight countries.

The countries include UK, Cameroon, Benin Republic, Côte d’Ivoire and South Africa.

According to Mr Fabian Benjamin,not less than 297 foreign candidates participated in the 2018 UTME in the countries conducted on Saturday, April 14, under the supervision of some foreign nationals, who came to understudy the process. All resources to ensure the smooth conduct of the examination were readily deployed by the board.

“They were happy as well as impressed with what they saw on ground. We know it can only be better because we have the capacity and all it takes to move this country to the next level,” he said.

“Again, we are not just conducting the examination in these countries because of the number of candidates that indicate interest but because we also want to showcase Nigeria’s giant strides in technological advancement on the global scene.”

Meanwhile,JAMB has distanced itself from a purported cutoff mark being circulated in some sections of the media, saying it did not emanate from the board.

Mr Benjamin said no such cutoff mark, whether for programmes or institutions had been released by JAMB as was being speculated.

“No cutoff marks will ever be decided upon without the usual policy meeting which has been scheduled to hold sometime in June and which is to be chaired by the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu.

Any institution that has commenced any form of admission without the official cutoff mark as would be decided upon at the June policy meeting is doing so illegally.

The management would continue to uphold standards and due process to protect the integrity of its examinations and process.
