JAMB Introduces Two Other Subjects For UTME

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has said it is introducing two new science subjects for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.

The Registrar of JAMB, Prof Ishaq Oloyede, stated this on Saturday in Abuja.

The subjects are Physical Health Education and Computer Science.

“We are asking and sensitising the public, particularly the students, who are to take the exam, that these are two science subjects that will be added to their choice to widen opportunities for candidates to be able to access tertiary education,” Oloyede stated.

The registrar also noted that the board would soon clear the backlog of illegal admissions conducted by tertiary institutions in the country.

He said the move was to ensure that students, who were improperly admitted, but had the minimum qualifications, were rescued.

JAMB had recently uncovered 706,189 illegal admissions by universities, polytechnics, colleges of education and other related institutions.

“We want to continue the campaign to discourage those who are committing such illegal action to stop doing so,” Oloyede said.

While noting that a cashless registration system was adopted for 2022 UTME, Oloyede said JAMB would also prohibit computer-based test centres from selling e-PINs to guard against extortion of candidates.

He stated, “It is known that many CBT centres, despite supervision, still manage to exploit candidates.

“We want to put a stop to that; we have intensified monitoring, but part of what we are doing is to ensure that we protect the students against this extortion.

“We will ensure that anybody who wants to sell ePIN will not be a CBT centre operator. Once you are a CBT centre operator, you have lost the right to sell ePIN, so that we can hold the ePIN sellers responsible for what they do.”

It was gathered that the pupil was abducted by the kidnappers who came in a commercial tricycle.

According to Daily Nigerian, the incident occurred at 5pm, on Saturday, December 4, when she and other neighbourhood children were returning from an Islamic school.

“The distance from her home to the Islamiyya school is not far. So children normally trek to the school in group on their own,” said her uncle, Suraj Zubair.

They beat him up and he fell from his bunk and after they were done they called us back to the room and aslem said the school rules piss him off and if we snitch the way sly did them would do even worse to us. Sly was still on the ground and favor kicked his head again before they left.

In the morning on Sunday sly was on his bed and he complained that he couldn’t walk so the senior called us to their room and said if we snitch they would know and that if they ask us what is wrong we should say he played football.

The dorm master knew there was a beating that occurred so I don’t understand why they are lying on the internet that he wasn’t aware.

Even the following morning sly went to the sick bay and it was obvious he was beaten and because no football can break bones and moreover that week we didn’t have or play football or sport activities.

I tried to explain to the principal what happened but they keep shutting us up and saying he was playing football even before sly uncle came to pick him up me and me and my friend told our dorm master mr amed what really happened but they didn’t want to listen to us
I can’t sleep so I decided to speak the truth everything sly said before he died were the truth.
