Some parents whose children sat for the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) on Saturday, expressed their frustration and disappointment on the conduct of the exam.

Some of the parents, who spoke with NAN at YABMA International Science Academy, 500 Housing Unit, Lokoja, expressed disappointment for the delay in the commencement of the examination.

A parent, Pastor Igwe Liberty, told NAN that the UTME which was expected to begin at 7 a.m. could not start until around 11 am due to system error according to the school management.

”We had thousands of students waiting under the sun to write the UTME exam that was supposed to start by 7 am, but it never started till around quarter past 11 am.

”We were told this same problem happened during the last Mock examination.

”So, our own apprehension is that if the same thing happened during mock exam and JAMB were not able to rectify it until the main exam, then, it calls for a great concern on the plight of our children,” Liberty said.

He urged the JAMB Registrar to ensure they deploy unbiased supervisors for proper monitoring of centers for the sake of their children.

Another parent, Mr Ovim Ochechi, lamented that the happenings at JAMB centre was the saddest experience to Nigerian academics, adding that it was a betrayal of trust from JAMB.

”I think JAMB must have to be particular about this centre this time around, so that we can know where the problem is coming from,” Ochechi stressed.

Another parent, Hajia Zara Ahmed, said the centre did not have the capacity to be a JAMB CBT centre and should be disqualified.

On his part, Pastor Wole Olowo, said the conduct of the exam at the centre was discouraging, saying the exam that ought to commence by 7 am, eventually started around past 11 am.

”This is not encouraging and we are calling on JAMB to be more proactive”, Olowo added.
