JAMB’s Innovative Proposal for 2023 UTME: Mobile Phone Usage
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has recently put forward an innovative proposal for the upcoming 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
In a bid to enhance convenience and efficiency for candidates, JAMB is considering the use of mobile phones as part of the examination process, adopting the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) system.
Subheading 2: Advantages of BYOD: Convenience and Accessibility
The proposed utilization of mobile phones for the 2023 UTME presents numerous advantages for aspiring students.
By allowing candidates to bring their own devices, JAMB aims to improve accessibility and convenience during the examination.
Students are already familiar with their personal mobile phones, which can significantly reduce the learning curve associated with using unfamiliar devices.
Addressing Challenges and Ensuring Fairness
While the BYOD system offers promising benefits, JAMB acknowledges the need to address certain challenges to ensure a fair and secure examination process.
The board is actively working on implementing robust security measures to prevent cheating and uphold the integrity of the UTME.
Additionally, guidelines will be provided to candidates regarding approved applications and restrictions to ensure a level playing field for all participants.
This bold proposal by JAMB reflects the board’s commitment to embracing technological advancements and finding innovative solutions to improve the examination experience for students.
If implemented successfully, the use of mobile phones in the 2023 UTME could mark a significant milestone in the history of the examination.
