What is JAMB
As at 1974, there were seven (7) Universities owned by the federal government in Nigeria. Every one of these university back then conducted their own entrance examination and admitted students based on individual standards. However, this system of admission did reveal serious limitations and wasn’t very fair.
The general untidiness in this system of admissions into Nigerian universities and the attendant problems that ensued were sufficient cause for concern to the committee of vice – chancellors. These problems had assumed new dimension when in 1976, the then federal military government, under the leadership of General Olusegun Obasanjo,established six (6) more universities. Consequently, the government set up a national committee on university entrance under the chairmanship of Mr. M. S. Angulu.
In 2013, JAMB started the practice of writing the UTME exam with the computer, this was called the Computer Based Test(CBT). Although in 2013 and 2014, the CBT was optional with the pen and paper as options but from 2015, the CBT was made compulsory.
