2024 UTME: JAMB Meets CBT  Administrators, Clears 747  CTRS For Registration, Examination


Ahead of 2024 UTME registration exercise commenced on Monday, 15th January, 2024,

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB)  met with CBT administrators on the modalities for a hitch free exercise.

It would be recalled that the Board had shortlisted 907 CBT centres for accreditation, but at the conclusion of revalidation and integrity tests, it was only able to certify 747 centres for the 2024 UTME exercise.

While briefing critical stakeholders at a virtual meeting held on Monday, 8th January, 2024, the ICT consultant to the Board, Mr Damilola Bamiro, congratulated those centres that passed the integrity test to count  themselves lucky urging them not to compromise on standards that earned them accreditation.

He said the Board would not compromise on its standards and urged those centres that scale through the hurdle of accreditation to jealously guard their position as no centre is indispensable.


Mr Bamiro also disclosed that the Board was set to fully embrace HIK vision CCTV system as it comes equipped with a minimum of 16 channels to cover vital areas of their facilities and urged centres to migrate speedily as 2024 had been designated as the take-off year. According to him, centres that failed to record their examination session during the UTME would not be paid for those sessions.

He enjoined centres to maintain 24 pot switches, which must be connected to uninterrupted power source(UPS) at all times.Furthermore, Mr Bamiro stated that the Board would not hesitate to withdraw the accreditation of any centres, which engage in unlawful migration of candidates from one computer system to another because each system has a unique identifier noting that such unwholesome act could jeopardise the prospects of such candidates.

On network coverage, Mr Bamiro advised centres that had problem not  to hesitate to escalate it for the Board to include such in its optimisation plans adding that all centres must be located within area with good Airtel and MTN services. Similarly, Mr Bamiro  reminded centres of the imperative of using static IP address system rather than dynamic ones because of the  Board’s software design which were pattern in line with static ID configuration
