The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has restated its commitment to operate a transparent system in conducting examinations in the country.
JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede stated this at the sideline of the 2018 Nigerian Police recruitment examinations, conducted at the JAMB Computer Based Test (CBT) centre at Bwari in the FCT.
“We have so many people, who believe in us; agencies who patronise us, particularly, those who want to do things transparently.
“If you want to set rules and want it to be enforced transparently, JAMB will give you the services at a cost you cannot get anywhere because we use an already established facility for that.
“We ensure a set standard. We have conducted exams for about 16 agencies this year and may begin another one in some few weeks,’’ he said.
On the police recruitment, the registrar said over 37, 000 candidates were assessed at 156 CBT centres nationwide.
He said the candidates, who wrote the examinations at no cost to the board would not have a cut-off mark for assessment, adding that the type of questions they answer was at the discretion of the board.
The possibility of being shortlisted, he explained would be determined by number of vacancies available in the police, as well as the performance of the candidates.
