Lagos - The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Monday said it would not go back on its decision to make the 2015 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) entirely computer-based.
The JAMB Registrar, Prof. Dibu Ojerinde, said this in an interview in Lagos.
Ojerinde said on the sideline of a three-day National Conference on Science, Technology and Mathematics (STM) Education.
The conference was organised by the Department of Science and Technology Education, University of Lagos, with the theme: "Application of New Technologies in Science, Technology and Mathematics Education".
According to the registrar, there is no going back on the proposed Computer-Based Test (CBT) for all UTME candidates in 2015.
"Preparations are on top gear to ensure that the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) is successful.
"I want to assure the public that we are working round the clock to ensure that we record huge success during our 2015 all computer-based test, he said."
Ojerinde said that there would be a slight shift in the date for the examination in view of the 2015 general elections.
According to him, the examination may come up in March instead of April.
Ojerinde advised prospective candidates not to register at cyber cafes to avoid problems.
He said that the 156 centres approved for the UTME nationwide would henceforth serve as registration points for the examination.
