The Senate has urged the Federal Ministry of Education to scrap post-Unified Matriculation Examination (UME) in its entirety. It has also urged the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to develop a strategy to ensure the efficiency and integrity in the conduct of the pre-university examination.
The decision of the Senate followed the adoption of a motion sponsored by Umaru Kurfi.
The Senate said the introduction of the Post-UME examination has to a large extent, failed to remedy the problems associated with JAMB and as such, its continued existence has posed more challenges for the Nigerian educational system.
