The Registrar and Chief Executive Officer of the Joint Universities Preliminary Examinations Board (JUPEB), Prof. Duro Ajeyalemi has commended the commitment of the Vice Chancellor of the University of Calabar (Unical), Prof. Zana Akpagu to the growth and development of the University.

Prof. Ajeyalemi made the commendation during a courtesy call on on Prof. Akpagu in his office.

He said that JUPEB was set up by a consortium of 10 Universities in 2014 to conduct examinations for students in the foundation programmes of the Universities.

According to him, "the JUPEBs programme which is already in the JAMB portal is a one year intensive programme with a reviewed syllabus containing 19 subjects that are part of the basic JAMB requirement for admission into universities.

"Candidates upon completion of the programme can choose any University of their choice provided they make the minimum requirement. Many foreign Universities also recognize JUPEB certificates".

Responding, Prof. Akpagu commended the level of cooperation of the JUPEB officials saying that their response showed their level of commitment and enthusiasm.

While pledging to work hard to ensure Unical become a member of JUPEB, he charged the University’s Implementation Committee to hit the ground running.

In an earlier remark, the Chairman of the Unical JUPEB Implementation Committee and Ag Dean of Graduate School, Prof. Arikpo Bassey Arikpo, said the team was in the University to inspect physical facilities and necessary records pursuant to determining whether UNICAL is fit enough for JUPEB programme.

He asserted that the JUPEB programme was in line with the Vice Chancellor’s vision for an improved, sustained and quality continuing education in the University.
