JAMB de-registers 14 CBT centres, as UTME holds April 11-15

The Joint Admission and Registration Board has de – listed 14 Computer Based Test centres out of the 712 accredited due to infractions such as technical hitch and deceit.

Prof . Ishaq Oloyede made this known when he led the Minister of Education , Adamu Adamu , on a visit to some CBT centres in Abuja during the mock examination .
Oloyede said that the 698 centres left in the operations were ready for the conduct of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Education scheduled to hold between April 11 and April 15 .

He added that the board was prepared for the over 157 , 000 candidates sitting for the examinations .

“ So far , so good ; all the centres are doing very well . Of the 712, we have had to dis -accredit 14 this morning for one infraction or the other
“ Some had technical problems and some due to deceit whereby some of them will go and borrow some computers, thinking that we will not know .

“ Those centres we discovered went ahead to borrow computer systems for the exams have been dis- accredited . Now, we have about 698 centres left in the operation , but we have distributed the students across board . ”

Oloyede added that the mock examination was free in JAMB – owned centres , as it was a way the board gets the operations of the system ready ahead of the main examinations .

He said only candidates writing the mock examinations at privately – owned CBT centres would pay N 700.
