For effective delivery of its Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) at the various CBT centres nationwide, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has concluded plans to phase out the use of zero thin client computers from the conduct of its UTME. This development is sequel to the numerous operational hiccups associated with zero thin clients computers. It is to be noted that zero thin client systems owe all their operational existence to a server. Hence, the major drawback against a zero thin-client configuration is that once the memory of the server is exhausted or if there is any network disruption, all connected users are simultaneously affected thereby impacting multiple candidates at once in the centre. 

This policy direction is one of the measures being contemplated to holistically address the issue of examination disruptions. Consequently, the Board, in consideration of the immense benefits to candidates and centres alike, is requesting its partnering centres to begin to plan towards obtaining mini PCs which are not only cheap to procure and easy to operate but also more efficient in terms of power consumption. As a proactive organisation, the Board would not rest on its laurels as it would continue to leverage on the best technology available to enhance its operations.
