UTME: JAMB trains 2,000 invigilators

By Saheed Ibrahim


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has trained no fewer than 2,000 invigilators ahead of the 2023 Unified Tertiary and Matriculation Examinations and Direct Entry examinations.

The board, in a bulletin published this week, said the training was needed for examination officers to comport themselves professionally, particularly when addressing cases of malpractice without necessarily causing a commotion in the hall.

The board noted that the training availed it the opportunity to review the guidelines for proctors and other examination officials, saying it was held simultaneously in three batches across the six geopolitical zones.

JAMB said: “The training was part of the Board’s efforts to equip all officials, particularly the Proctors, on the rudiments of computer appreciation and measures to address any technical issues that might arise during the conduct of the examination.

“The training would, among other things, help in ensuring that Proctors familiarise themselves with the rules and regulations of the examination.”

The examination officers were also advised not to extort candidates, to arrive promptly at their assigned examination centres and avoid bringing their mobile phones into the examination hall, charging such phones in the examination hall, or engaging in any communication with outsiders during the examination.
