Breaking: Again, JAMB servers suffer black out, resolved 40 minutes after

The ongoing 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) again suffered technical glitches as reported by many centres across the nation.

The first session, which should commence 08:00 am to 10:00 am on Friday, could not be held as servers of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB , failed to connect with the local ones attached to each centre across the country.

Integrity News can independently verify that the technical problem was later resolved in many centres across the country after 40 minutes behind schedule.

Officials in some centres who spoke anonymously to Integrity News said the challenge had been escalated for immediate solution before the server later came on after more than 30 minutes.

Integrity News reports that the national examination earlier suffered a mild setback in the second session of the first day of the exercise across the country.

JAMB later rescheduled the examination for candidates who couldn’t take their tests on Tuesday, 24/04/2023, due to technical hitches.

The examination body urged the affected candidates to re-print their examination slips on Wednesday, 26 April to know their new scheduled venue, date and time.

JAMB’s spokesperson, Fabian Benjamin, gave the directive in a statement issued on Tuesday.

“It is to be noted that about 100 centres out of the 708 participating in the 2023 UTME exercise across the country experienced technical challenges that prevented their allotted candidates from successfully taking their examination,” he said.

The JAMB spokesperson said the technical challenges faced were a result of some innovations deployed by the examination body to “safeguard the sanctity of the examination by checkmating all incidences of examination misconduct being perpetrated and perpetuated by vested interests.”
