Have JAMB 2016 results turned out the worst in the history?

According to statistics the scoring of students who have passed UTME JAMB in 2016 were the lowest of all! Joint Admission and Matriculation Board has given several reasons for such a poor performance. One of them is trouble in the computer system work. The other one relates to poor computer skills of the students. Not all of them were able to handle the software or PCs in the way to score high.

Surely there were many promises to teach people and provide them with all the possible assistance. Still many students complained that no assistance was ever provided to them during the JAMB examinations.

Abdulrofiu Muhammed Temitayo believes that people had too much trust in the machines, when no machine can really stand in a place of a human. Due to the failure in 2016 JABM examination process the majority of students scored under 200. Only those passing exams on two days got lucky. They received JAMB news and notifications of getting 40+ scores added to their results. The rest of them took to the streets and protested in Lagos.

The lucky ones soon regretted the joy they had over those additional 40 scores. Once they printed out the results, they found that nothing has been added to them.

Many jambites feel very frustrated over the whole situation. Moreover, Nigerian tertiary institutions are ready to accept only little over 400 thousand of all the jambites with their total number of 1.5 million! This means that the majority of those who have passed JAMB exam would be left out and get no opportunity to obtain a degree. And the situation with low scores has put many people out of competition for the available places in the Nigerian Universities and polytechnics.

Has JAMB reputation got damaged?

Certainly, the reputation of Joint Admission and Matriculation Board has suffered much from the latest JAMB news 2016. The ASUU (Academic Staff Union of Universities) has even filed a request to reduce the power given to JAMB and allow the Universities to make a decision on which students to take in or leave out.

Now is the time that education plays a very important role, and if the government has introduced these changes, they rely on the fact that students have to be so smart and well developed intellectually. If students do not have coped with this, it means that it is necessary to raise the level of their knowledge, because it is not dependent on the other, will you be clever. Each person chooses whether he needs to learn and what is achieved in life or not. Now people have already stopped all dobivatsya own hands, labor, and vice versa should be udoskonalyuvati himself and strives for the best.
