Senate Wants Post-UTME Scrap

Report gathered disclose that the Senate has urged the Federal Ministry of Education to scrap post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) in its entirety.

Meanwhile it has also urged the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to develop a strategy to ensure the efficiency and integrity in the conduct of the pre-university examination.

The decision of the Senate, followed the adoption of a motion sponsored by Umaru Kurfi, on Tuesday.

The Upper Chamber said the introduction of the post-UME examination has to a large extent, failed to remedy the problems associated with JAMB and as such, its continuous existence has posed more challenges for the Nigerian educational system.
