The Registrar of the Joint Admissions and
Matriculation Board (JAMB)
, Prof. Dibu Ojerinde, has predicted that the
Post-UTME screening exercise organized by
higher institutions in Nigeria with soon stop
following the introduction of the Computer-
Based Test (CBT).

Ojerinde said the reason for this is that the
Computer Based mode of UTME had helped
to completely eradicate examination
malpractice.

Many universities and polytechnics introduced post-JAMB tests for applicants
before they are offered admission,
irrespective of whether they passed the
JAMB examination, which has attracted its
fair share of criticism as it was described as
a means of extorting money from
applicants.

Prof. Ojerinde said that the screening tests
will die naturally as there is no way parents
or candidates will be able to cheat during
the UTME.

According to the registrar, the CBT system is
a way of preparing candidates ahead of the
challenge in universities where they would
be extensively drilled.
