The Joint Admission and Matriculation Examination Board (JAMB), has started voicing its plans to conduct future exams for candidates from their homes.

Fabian Benjamin, the board spokesman, said that the examination body will implement the idea once the technology for it has been established.

However, Damilola Oyeshola, an ICT expert, stated that the challenges of technology in the country will hinder the implementation and progress of the vision.

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Examination Board (JAMB), has made mention of plans to have the university entry examination written by candidates from their places of residence throughout the nation. 

Fabian Benjamin, the board spokesman, said this on Monday, March 12, in Abeokuta. Benjamin said: “We are thinking of open book examinations or allowing them write the examination from their houses. Once we get the required technology, we can do it," Daily Trust reports. 

Concerning challenges confronting the board, especially in the current United Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), the spokesman remarked: “At any point if there is an issue, we find a way to solve it to ensure all candidates write the UTME with convenience.” 

He said the results of the exam would be delayed as there was need to preview them before they were eventually released.
