The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is about now holding a consultative meeting with the thirty-six States’ Commissioners of Education and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
This is coming As part of ongoing consultation for A hitch-free 2021/22 UTME/DE registration and examination exercise.
The meeting hosted by the Board is part of a series of high-level meetings with critical stakeholders ahead of the planned 2021 exercise.
According to Jambbulttin the purpose of the meeting is to present to the Commissioners the Board’s programmes for the 2021 exercise while also seeking their input in ensuring a hitch free exercise.
Earlier, the Board had met with officials of NIMC, proprietors of Computer-Based Centres, Service Providers, Technical Advisors, Telcos, Financial Institutions and Vendors, Opinion Leaders, Civil Society Groups and other critical stakeholders.
The Board views commissioners of education as partners and veritable instruments in the dissemination of critical information as well as sensitisation of the general public about the various policies and advisories emanating from the Board.
“As policymakers, there is no doubt that their roles in examination administration cannot be underestimated as they have provided information and advisories that have reshaped some decisions of the Board and engendered improvements in its service delivery,” the Board said.
