Adding that, The Board of Directors is planning to launch a digital platform to improve communication between the Board and stakeholders and also Centres with desktop computers may continue to operate if an Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) was installed during the testing period.

“Power outages have been interfering with the examination, so we will no longer register any centres that use desktop computers,” Oloyede said. Before a new CBT center can be accredited, it must have laptop computers.”

Oloyede denied claims that the organization would not administer the 2023 UTME due to university academic calendar disruptions.

He hinted that applicants for the 2024 UTME would have to pay N1,000 to CBT centers rather than the previous amount of N700 due to the increase in the price of diesel and other facilities. Furthermore, he stated that those who will take the mock examination would be charged an additional N1,000.

On the new digital platform, Oloyede stated that JAMB would launch its paperless communication system with universities on January 1, 2024.

He stated that the CAPS communication infrastructure had been put in place to send, track, record, and archive admission-related communication.
“This will ensure that the transition from a paper-based communication system to a paperless administration is completed.” This will eliminate delays in the Board’s most critical operations, increase efficiency, track communication, and store communication recordings, he said.

Oloyede stated that JAMB would meet digitally with all tertiary institutions on November 14 to ensure a smooth transition.
