The president of Association of Tutorial School Operators, Mr Shodunke Oludotun has stated that the reason many candidates failed the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) was due to the fact that the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) used the wrong software to mark the exam.
According to him, JAMB used the software for 2017 exam to grade the students in 2017.
Mr Shodunke who equally called for the resignation of the JAMB Boss, Professor Dibu Ojerinde stated that there is evidence that virtually all the results of candidates they have collected bear 2017/2018 and not 2017/2018 which it was suppose to be.
He stressed that from their findings, it was revealed that the software of 2017/2018 interfered with the 2017/2018, which led to the massive failure of the students.
He said they were not against the use of the Computer Based Test (CBT) but said it was full of irregularities which led to the mass failure of candidates.
