JAMB 2021: Registration hiccups partly responsible for Mass failure

Following the woeful performance of the students who wrote this year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, across the country, the education tutors in Ondo State, have blamed the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board for the development.

The tutors, under the auspices of the Association of Tutorial School Operators, said the JAMB should be concerned more on how pupils prepare for the examination instead of focusing solely on profit making.

Speaking in Akure while honouring pupils who excelled in academic excellence across the state, the chairman of the tutorial school operators in the state, Mr Bankole Olufisayo, emphasised that the registration process by JAMB this year was one of the factors that affected the students’ woeful performance.

He said, “Lots of issues are responsible for the woeful performance. Some are on the part of the students and their parents and the major ones are caused by JAMB.

“The process in registering JAMB this year is too rigorous. A student will try to create a profile. How do you create a profile? You send your name to 55019. Many of these students have sent it more than 100 times without getting it. Later they will refer them to service providers, and from there refer them again to link their SIM with NIN. At the NIN centres, many of these students spent days, weeks sleeping at the centres just because they want to register for JAMB.”
