Now let me quickly look at the first topic on our list
Is Jamb 2021 Getting Hard
The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has not change the standard of the UTME so it is wrong to proclaim that Jamb is getting hard in 2021, though the mass failure makes it easy for one to believe that the standard of the examination has been raise but this is not so, the mass failure in the Just concluded Jamb examination can be attributed to different factors which we will address in this article as you read on.
Why Many Failed Jamb 2021
The cause of the mass failure in the 2021 Jamb Examination can be attributed to factors both from JAMB and Candidate who failed the examination, so let look at this factors and how they influence the mass failure.
i. Factors from JAMB
Since from registration days there were lots of loopholes during registration, from failure of candidates to recieve their Jamb profile Code to several issues which the board failed to address, lots of Candidates did not register for the answer because the didn’t recieve their Jamb profile code despite sending several sms to the Jamb system, even on exams date many candidate encounter several challenge in their CBT center, some of the computers provided by some CBT center are outdated severely complain were made to the board unresolved this clearly shows that Jamb is introducing technology which it can’t handle into the system, why introducing a system you can’t deal with it errors into a very delicate exam like JAMB? With all this errors during registration and on exams day how can candidate be so sure that this same system can accurately process their results within just a week of writing the exams without another error?, If Jamb cannot adequately fix it system then they should better revert back to the pencil and paper base testing and the formal registration ways to stop candidates and parents from paying for the board errors.
Another change by Jamb which influence this failure is time frame between the registration to the Exam day, before now Jamb registration last for about three month before exam dat, registration can start in November and Jamb exam will be conducted in March and from the day of your registration you already know your exams day, given enough room to candidate to prepare for their exams but now the system has change after registration candidate have to wait for a month or more to know their exam day, and this day is usually just few days from the announcement day, for example the exam will be starting on 27 jamb made it known on 20th this also affect the failure rate.
ii. Factors from Candidates
Regardless of all errors by the board most candidate who failed the 2021 Jamb examination are responsible for their failure. If we can recalled during the days when the only method of writing JAMB was Paper and pencils it was not so easy for candidate to score around 220 in Jamb this made so many candidate to prepare adequately for the exams and if you ever score above 200 as of them you are consider one of the most brilliant students, fast forward to the computer base testing age candidate easily score above 200 in the Jamb Exams and due to this many candidate becomes relax and failed to prepare adequately for the exam, taking this year for instance the number of candidates who turn up for jamb preparation class were very low. After registration instead of preparing for their exams the turn to Facebook, Snapchat, Tiktok and Instagram for cruise, there are just so many distractions to keep candidate away from their books. There is no longer reading culture among young ones these days. As a parent it is your duty to make sure you take away all this distractions from your child and make sure the prepare well for Jamb.
