JAMB 2017 examination that began yesterday was not well commended by Candidates as they poured out their frustration over what they described as poor preparation by JAMB as most centers visited started late and had network failure among other issues.
Reporters who visited some centres in Lagos observed that aside the delay that characterised the start up in some centres, two hours behind schedule , candidates had to contend with breakdown of server while writing the exam.
One of the several candidates who spoke to our correspondent in Yaba College of Technology center was Busayo Akinyemi who came from Mushin to write the examination.
Akinyemi said she felt sad that JAMB could not live up to its promise. Her words, “ I was here before 6:30 am because I was among the first batch to write by 7am. However, the exam did not start until 11:30.
This was after we had shouted at JAMB officials who were still bringing computers into the hall as at 9am”.
The same scenario was witnessed at Career Centre, Iwaya at Sabo/ Bariga area of Lagos where candidates slated to begin the exam at 1:30 pm stood under the sun as at 1pm, even as those who had already written theirs came out of the hall with complaints that only one engineer was on ground to battle the issue of system breakdown or network failure.
