The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has de-registered 14 Computer Based Test Centres leaving 698 centres out of the 712 accredited earlier. This may not be unconnected to activities such as technical lapses and deceit.
This was made known when Jamb Registrar – Prof.Ishiaq Oloyede led the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu on an inspection of some CBT centres in Abuja during the mock examination yesterday 1st of April.
The Registrar later certified the 698 left in the operations ready for decent conduct of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Education scheduled to hold between April 11 and April 15. He also added that the board was prepared for well over 157,000 candidates that sat for the Mock examinations.
He alleged that some of the deregistered centres went to borrow some computers, thinking that Jamb management will not know. This was later to be discovered and this led to their deregistration.
The Mock examination is an annual dress rehearsal to UTME proper. It is a way the board gets the operations of the system ready ahead of the main examinations.
Only candidates writing the mock examinations at privately-owned CBT Centres are expected to part with N700 per candidate for the Mock examination.
