JAMB says the board had put in place all measures to ensure smooth conduct of the examination.
Meanwhile, a visit to some of the CBT Centres in Abuja indicates that JAMB has done it’s quota in the conduct of the 2022 UTME.
Some stakeholders and some candidates who spoke with ACCESS 24 CREW on the second day of the examination noted that the exams were hitch free, while some CBT Administrators testified that the synergy between JAMB and CBT Centres is efficiently working.
