The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Examinations, JAMB, Saturday, said it is planning a “Bring Your Own Device” initiative for the Unified Tertiary Matriculations Examinations and the Direct Entry Examinations.
The Registrar of JAMB, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, made this known during the ongoing 2023 policy meeting ongoing in Abuja at the National Judicial Institute.
According to Oloyede, the initiative is such that it would allow candidates to take the examinations on their mobile phones.
The JAMB boss noted that the board has continued to spend huge amounts of money on buying computers use in the conduct of examinations, hence the need for the initiative.
In the presentation unveiled by Oloyede, the board said,” On the way forward, we are looking at BOYD – the direction for JAMB Students to bring their telephones. It lowers capital investment but is not helpful for digital literacy. There will be the establishment of a mobile examinational malpractice tribunal to deal with the criminal aspect while institutions handle the misconduct.
