Emerging issues from the ongoing UTME JAMB 2016 Examinations has raised serious questions about the capacity of the JAMB officers to efficiently organize a computer based test successfully.
Here is the agonizing story of a candidate who feels cheated:
Since I knew about JAMB, I have never had any news saying that more than half of those that sat for jamb were complaining that they were not given their right scores. When majority are complaining, then its obvious that they are saying the truth.
People are just crying everywhere, because its very painful that you are very sure of what you wrote expecting nothing less that 300, and at the end of the day JAMB sent you 180 as your score. Some complained that the subject that they answered just few questions were where they got the highest marks meanwhile failing those they were sure of. Have you ever heard of JAMB dashing people 5 marks, talk more of 40, to tell you that they know that they are at fault and that the scores they gave them at the initial time was not their real score.
If those exams where to be remarked, i am 100% sure that more that half of those people complaining will score higher than their formal score plus 40. And now there are not still giving everybody the 40 additional marks no matter the reason for that,is that not cheating, partiality and wickedness. Imagine that someone they originally gave 160 and letter added 40 will now have a total score of 200 whereas there is also another person out there that is normally not supposed to score 160 but was given 160 with no additional mark. And the one with 200 will sit for putme in his/her choice university while the other will not. Is it fair? There should be equity. So therefore its high time the govt should come into this situation and solve it.
Last year, JAMB came up with eligibility, now it is wrong markings. All Jambites affected seriously needs to disagree with this jamb 2016 result. The govt should look into look into this matter because this is really unbearable. If this where to be some other foreign countries, by now there must have been a record of about 1000 students that have committed suicide. For the fact that Nigerians are not like that doesn't mean they should be deprived of their right. Seriously the government ought to look into this matter. Its either jamb gives the computer the right answers and remark these test or cancel the exam or call them to rewrite their exams after they must have resolved the problems.
If you are a JAMBITE, Please share your experience with us.
