Unlike other years, the 2022 UTME Examination results was a big success as reported by The Punch.

Regardless of the early difficulties such as increase in diesel cost, JAMB still worked with the Computer Based Training centers in obtaining diesel. The board also mentioned that it would make use of laptops afterwards.

It declared: “For the efficiency to carry out UTME at the various CBT based training center , JAMB has finished plans to make use of zero thin client computers for the conduct of its examination.”

“As a result,the main disadvantage of a zero thin client computer is that once the server’s memory is depleted or there is internet interruption, all the users connected are all affected at once.”

“This policy guidance is one of the measures being considered to address the problems of examination interruptions as a whole. As a result, the board, in deliberation of the huge advantages to candidates and centres alike is calling for its partnering centres to begin to plan for getting hold of mini PCs that are cheap to acquire, easy to operate, and more efficient in power consumption.”
