NAE HOLDS ITS 23RD ANNUAL SEMINAR



The Nigerian Academy of Education (NAE) held its 23rd annual Academic seminar on the 3rd of May 2019 at the National Commission for Colleges of Education conference hall with JAMB registrar Prof. Ishaq Oloyede as the guest speaker.

Prof. Oloyede in his paper presentation titled ''Admission into Tertiary Educational Institution in Nigeria'' stated that Wrong O'level subject combination, under age, late change of institution among others has been identified as some of the factors militating against admission into Nigerian tertiary institutions. Oloyede further highlighted candidates' deliberate absence from UTME screening, low post UTME score, UTME combination deficiency and non-acceptance of offer as other reasons.

Prof Ishaq Oloyede during his presentation also said candidates now engage in different forms of examination malpractices common among includes, use of cheating watches, spy camera glasses, smart lens and invisible watches.

Other strategies employed by some candidates are the use of wireless and invisible earpieces, smart rings and cheating exam calculators. However, the JAMB registrar said in spite these exam malpractices the board has put up stringent measures in mitigating these anomalies which he summarized to include; adequate supervision, application of sanctions, biometric verification, use of CCTV and imbursement of photos on documents.

He further said that with the introduction of Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) JAMB now finds it easy to address current challenges faced which offers significant innovation and delivers benefit of automation effectively.

Prof. Oloyede stressed that prior to the introduction of CAPS, the board is always faced with series of challenges which include; multiple admission of candidates, constrained admission opportunities, lack of timely information for decision making among others.

According to him, CAPS is an application used for checking of admission status, therefore, rejecting and accepting of admission are now conducted easily on JAMB's CAPS portal.

The Nigerian Academy of Education seminar was chaired by the NAE President Prof Elizabeth Eke, FNAE which had in attendance, Honorable Minister for State Education, Prof. Anthony Anwukah, FNAE, Executive Secretary, Prof. Bappa-Aliyu Muhammadu, the pioneer NCCE Executive Secretary Prof. Peter N. Lassa and all former Executive Secretaries of NCCE.

A highlight of the event was a book launch titled 'Education for Functionality' by Prof Emeritus Pai Obayan.
