I submit that the scrapping of Jamb is the best news ever for our up and coming students because the hassle of jamb was too too much, there are many intellects in the time past who could not go to higher institution due to jamb,it has always be a stumbling block to many students,who happens to take jamb couple of times just to gain admission into universities, whereas in a civilized nations soon as u complete your high school and obtains a high school diploma/GED,you good to enter into higher institution of your choice,provided you meet the school requirement.

This is a step in the right direction and I hope those criminals in suits and Agbada who makes billions in the name of jamb won't stand in the way of one good thing GEJ is about to do as a president,since his assumption to office.
