Varsity Don slams Senate for extending Jamb result validity to 3 years | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper

Dr Oluyombo Onafowokan, an Associate Professor, said on Saturday that the directive by the Senate that JAMB should extend the validity of its results to three years will have negative effect on the nation’s standard of education.

Onafowokan, a Senior Lecturer, School of Management & Social Sciences, Pan Atlantic University, Lagos, made the observation in an interview in Sango-Ota, Ogun.

He explained that such policy would make students lackadaisical and unserious.

According to him, the directive by the Senate is not good for our educational system because it will make students not to take JAMB examination seriously.

“’I think the new policy will also create room for redundancy, since they know that their JAMB result could be used to enter the university for three years,’’ he said.

Onafowokan noted that parents should be able to monitor their wards as well as put pressure on them to prepare under the present JAMB policy.

The don said that JAMB should be allowed to continue with the best ways known to it in handling the examination annually.

He said that the nation’s educational system needed policy that would improve standard of education not the one that would have adverse effects.

The Senate on Thursday in Abuja directed the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), to extend the validity of its results to a period of three years.

  1. The se ate has no work. They should leave core academics to make policies that will best help our collapsing educational system.
    A candidate that wrote Jamb exams three years earlier may have forgotten most of what he or she may have learnt while preparing for the exam.
    It will be very difficult for such a person to cope or stabilise academically. Senate should stop creating unnecessary problems in the system.
    Nigeria so much like short cut or easy way out.
    It is not by force to go to school.Those who cannot meet or cope with the method or standard can try Toronto certificate instead of going through the back do to lower the bar.
