The following are a few of the numerous comments and opinions that a number of scholars have shared with us with regards to the 2016 JAMB Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME). It is our hope that JAMB will do something to make the CBT system better.
I wish to state categorically that children who have been straight As students from Jss1 to SS3 , who made distinction in all Cambridge subjects, cannot have less than 300 in Jamb!
Jamb pls come to the aid of our children. They are our future! The future of Nigeria!
Pls let’s help and encourage our children to stay back and study here.
A lot of them get offered scholarship to study abroad because of their distinct and outstanding results!
What is happening to us in Nigeria?
Why would adults who had it better in their time make life difficult and unbearable for the young ones?
What happened to the position of geniuses?
There used to be appreciation for excellence!
Why do we now encourage mediocrity and easy way out!
Addition of 40 marks across board is indication that there was error and totally unacceptable!
The children’s exams should be recalled online, details of questions with corresponding answers checked and proper and fair marking done!
Then and only then can we move forward in this Nation!

I think Jamb authorities should have the decency and enough integrity to admit their error and reschedule exams for all those who wrote on 27th and 29th.
Please do not toy with the destinies of these children so that posterity can smile on them as regards their own children too! – Danielle
