The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has de-listed fourteen Computer Based Test (CBT) canters out of the 712 accredited due to infractions like technical hitch and deceit.
Registrar of the examination board, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede made this known when he led the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu on a visit to some CBT centres in Abuja during the week.
The Registrar said that the 698 centres left in the operations were ready for the conduct of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) scheduled to hold between April 11 and April 15, 2019.
“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 computers and thinking that we will not know.
“Those centres we discovered went ahead to borrow computer systems for the exams have been dis-accredited and we have reposted systems. Now, we have about 698 centres left in the operation but we have distributed the students across board,” Oloyede stated.
He 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.
Adamu who spoke to pressmen at the end of the monitoring expressed confidence on the successful conduct of the coming examination on the 11th of April.
