The 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination conducted by JAMB is taking off with series of setbacks and disruptions.

On Monday, some candidates posted to Greenfield Academy School in Port Harcourt could not write their examination.  This follows the suspension of their examination by JAMB due to network failure.

Some of the JAMB candidates who spoke to HOMELAND NEWS reporter expressed fear that they may not be able to write the examination due to the hitches.

The candidates while staging a peaceful protest  at the school premises called on JAMB to initiate a new policy that will be  devoid of the present challenges.

In the meantime, the South South Zonal Coordinator of JAMB, Beatrice Ettanyam has assured the protesting JAMB candidates posted to Greenfield Academy School that the suspended examination for today will be written tomorrow Tuesday, May 15.

Ms. Ettanyam said the decision to suspend the examination was taken after several efforts to connect to the internet server failed.

HOMELAND NEWS recalls that various complaints have trailed this year's JAMB examination right from the registration stage. It took most of the candidates more than three days to complete the registration  due to cumbersome procedure adopted by JAMB without a complimenting advancement in technology. 

Experts had cautioned that if the examination body fails to retrace its step in taking up too many technological innovations at the same time, the entire process will turn to be a disaster.
