JAMB Registrar, Mr. Is’haq Oloyede has said the 2018 UTME will be different from others in all forms and one of the major differences is that candidates would not be allowed to go out to use the toilet during the examinations. He also said he would like CCTVs on all CBT centers to be working so he can view the centers from Abuja.
His words: “we want to seize this opportunity to inform you of the flagging off of the 2018 exercise.
“We will like to also assure you that we will make use of the best CBT centres in the coming examination.
“You will be culpable if you do not expose any CBT centre that is doing what is evil because they will attract condemnation from all of us.
“It is on this premise that we are appealing that you assist us in identifying the bad eggs among you and ensuring that they do not participate in our activities,” he said.
According to him, monitoring starts from the time of arrival of the centre owners to the workshop.
More requirements for CBT Centers
Mr. Oloyede also revealed that during the 2018 UTME examination, the board would include some other requirements for CBT centres.
“We are not going to accept wireless CCTV cameras. Any examination conducted in any CBT centre that we cannot monitor from Abuja will not be paid for.
“The onus is on you to ensure that your CCTV are working and must be on and no CBT centre is allowed to sell any kind of materials under the guise of past questions.
“We will also not tolerate candidates leaving the centre to go out to use the toilet. It is expected that all accredited CBT centres have an in-house convenience,” Mr. Oloyede said.
Please, if you’re going to be a candidate for this examination, prepare very well.
