Daily Trust - - CAMPUS ROUNDUP - From Ofim Kelechi and Fred­er­ick Ox­ford

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.

fim Kelechi and Fred­er­ick Ox­ford are level 200 stu­dents of the Nasarawa State Univer­sity.
