According to the weekly publication of the Office of JAMB Registrar, “To ensure that its staff are not deprived of their promotion increment effective 1st January in any promotion year, the Management of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has put in place adequate arrangements for the smooth conduct of 2021 promotion examination and other measures aimed at ensuring that all processes are concluded by mid-December so that necessary adjustments would have be effected on the personnel cost.

 

“In line with this philosophy, the Board has, therefore, fixed, Tuesday, 17th November, 2020, as the date for the conduct of the 2021 Staff Promotion Exercise. Promotion in the Board is seen as a component of welfare as it is on the must do list of the of the Board with all members of Management involved to ensure that no staff misses his/her opportunity for elevation. As an examination body, the Board’s Staff Promotion Examination provides it with a veritable opportunity to practise what it has been preaching in terms of adhering to all the rules governing the conduct of an examination.

 

“This is because this examination is taken under the strictest of conditions in line with global best practices in testing. As such, it is considered serious misconduct, which could lead to dismissal, for any staff sitting the promotion examination to be seen talking with a fellow examinee as CCTV cameras are viewed before final results are released. It is, therefore, to be noted that the strictness with which staff of the Board supervises examinations conducted by the Board is not unconnected with the rigours they also undergo in the course of attaining progression in the service.”
