2,700 candidates sat for UTME at NSUK centre
No fewer than 2,700 candidates sat for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) held last week at the Nasarawa State University Keffi (NSUK).
The university’s centre was sub-divided into five centres with each centre having 18 invigilators, five attendants, one centre coordinator, one assistant centre coordinator and a supervisor.
Security was beefed up with five officials of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps alongside the university security operatives manning each centre.
Some candidates who spoke to the writer shortly after the examination expressed their satisfaction with the way and manner the examination was conducted.
Musa Aminu, 14, said, “This is my first time of writing JAMB, and it was successful, I did not experience any form of malpractice in the hall.”
Pius Akpomoshi, 22, said, “It is my fourth experience and each time I am in the hall, shouting by some supervisors always distracted my attention.”
Allanana Joshua and Mohammad Yusuf both supervisors, expressed their satisfaction with this year’s exercise, saying that the conduct of the examination was largely hitchfree.
