Concerns Over Quality Of Teaching As Over 9 Million Fails JAMB

Jun, 14Views: 320

From 2018 to 2024, approximately 9.17 million out of 11.9 million candidates who took the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, administered by the Joint Admissions Matriculation Board, scored below the 200-pass mark. With an average failure rate of 78.29% over these seven years, educationists have pinpointed various causes for this widespread underperformance.

The release of the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination results has sparked a fervent debate about Nigeria's educational standards. Announced by Registrar Prof. Ishaq Oloyede on Monday, April 29, 2024, the results have raised nationwide concerns. Of the 1,904,189 candidates who sat the exam, 76.1% scored below 200 out of 400, prompting extensive discussion.

JAMB released 1,842,464 results, revealing that 76.1% scored below 200. Prof. Oloyede detailed the breakdown: 8,401 scored 300 and above, 77,070 scored 250 and above, 439,974 scored 200 and above, and 1,402,490 scored below 200. Additional results were released on May 7 and May 15, 2024, with a final batch on June 2, 2024, bringing the total to 1,879,437. Further, 24,535 candidates were scheduled to retake the exam.

This high failure rate has generated significant controversy. While some blame JAMB for poor examination management, others point to students' lack of preparation. Parents have also criticized the Computer-Based-Test centers for technical issues.

Despite these challenges, Prof. Peter Okebukola, former Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission, praised JAMB for maintaining integrity and transparency in public examinations.

Educational stakeholders have attributed the poor performance to systemic flaws, inadequate teacher qualifications, outdated curricula, and the influence of social media. Calls for comprehensive reforms have intensified, urging the government to address these issues urgently.

The Universal Basic Education Commission highlighted that 29% of teachers in Nigeria's basic education system are unqualified, exacerbating the problem. In public schools, 17% of teachers are unqualified, while in private schools, this figure rises to 40%.

JAMB, established by Act No. 2 of 1978, has been solely responsible for university, polytechnic, and college entry examinations. The introduction of Computer-Based Testing (CBT) in 2015 marked a significant shift, though initial glitches were expected. Despite efforts to stabilize the system, exam malpractices have persisted.

Historical data from JAMB shows a consistent high failure rate since 2018. In 2018, 74.1% of candidates scored below 200; in 2019, 77%; in 2020, 79.2%; in 2021, 87.2%; in 2022, 77.8%; and in 2023, 76.6%.

Some blame social media for distracting students, while others highlight broader issues such as poor educational infrastructure and teacher quality. Despite these challenges, some students have excelled, as evidenced by individual success stories celebrated by schools and state governments.

Educators have called for a return to a strong reading culture, better teacher remuneration, and improved educational funding. They also emphasize the need for comprehensive policy reviews and value reorientation to address the root causes of the high failure rates.

In conclusion, the persistent high failure rates in UTME reflect deeper issues within Nigeria's education system. Comprehensive reforms are essential to improve teacher qualifications, update curricula, enhance funding, and foster a conducive learning environment. The focus must be on addressing these foundational problems to ensure better outcomes for Nigerian students in the future.
