Miracle or JAMB glitch?

In a Facebook post, Gozie said the girl was supposed to take the exam at 7 am but that all the systems at her centre were faulty.

The girl and the other candidates were told to return the next day for their exam. Gozie explained that when they came the next day, they were told nothing could be done about it.

Surprisingly, the girl also received a UTME score like others who wrote the exam. She got 191.

Gozie said such a thing happened back in 2016. His Facebook post in part:

“…I’m still dumbfounded on how a person that literally wrote nothing got 191 or there about in jamb.

“According to her, her set, which was 7am had a problem with their system.

“Their system went off,not just one but all the system,it wasn’t resolved until time for the next set to write, guess what? They where all asked to go home and come the next day.

“They came the next day,and they where told that there’s nothing that they can do for them.

“Now, jamb result is out,and she got 191, could this be a miracle or jamb glitch.”

Fox Nigeria reported four reasons JAMB may reschedule a candidate’s exam.

JAMB reacts to glitches during exam

Meanwhile, Fox Nigeria previously reported that JAMB had reacted to glitch problems encountered by candidates at CBT centres.

Oloyede appealed to the affected UTME candidates to remain calm, stating that it was expected that some CBT centres would fail.

He said the technical issues are due to the level of development in different parts of the country. He appealed to candidates not to disrupt others from writing if they experience any technical issues during the exam, as they would be rescheduled to write the exam.
