The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced the commencement of the sale of 2015 application forms from 15th September and it is expected to usher in the implementation of full-blown Computer Based Test (CBT) in the 2015 Universal Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

A press release signed by the registrar of JAMB, Professor Dibu Ojerinde said candidates are expected to start purchasing their forms from Monday, September 15 to Thursday, January 15, 2015.

Professor Ojerinde, who assured candidates that the board has fine-tuned arrangements with computer based test (CBT) centres to register prospective UTME candidates, prayed for a registration error and stress free exercise for candidates.

The JAMB boss recalled the discovery by the board of cases of impersonation and other malpractices usually recorded during the registration process by cyber cafes and assured that the agency has decided to regulate the registration centres to ensure that the system is malpractice free.

Candidates are to obtain their application forms at designated banks after which they are to proceed to any approved CBT centres and register for the examination at a regulated fee. There are about 300 centres all over the country and staff of the centres have been trained for this purpose.

Professor Ojerinde also informed candidates that as part of ensuring standard and quality of public examination and encouraging reading culture in line with Mr President’s reading campaign, the board has reviewed textbooks hitherto read or recommended in previous matriculation examinations to give them broader spectrum of literary appreciation, by introducing a book, “The Last Days at Forcados High School”, at a recommended price of N500.00.

Some of the designated banks from which the forms could be purchased are Zenith Bank, Skye Bank, Union Bank, First Bank and also NIPOST. The forms are to be sold at the cost of N4,500.00.
