|JAMB Bans Use Of Cyber Cafe For Registration Of Candidates - TSL by topskylinker(m): 7:30am On Dec 21, 2018|
JAMB’s Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, while in a meeting with proprietors of Computer Based Test (CBT) centres at the University of Lagos on Thursday said the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) will no longer use cyber cafes for registration of candidates, beginning from the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
“We are no longer going to allow the cyber cafes to do the registration exercise for prospective candidates because they are extorting candidates and overcharging them.
“They also do services they do not have the capacity to do, coupled with the fact that there was no way of tracking them because they are not registered.
“Another major reason is the mix-up they create on the data of the candidates. Some will just ask the candidates to write their names and other details down for them.
“On accumulating such data, they now get all of them mixed-up, thereby creating problems for these candidates.
“We know there will be uproar because they make a lot of illegitimate money from these services, but we cannot leave the candidates at their mercy.
“Particularly when people will make noise that it is JAMB that was extorting them,’’ he said.
The professor urged all prospective candidates to do their registration and access the board’s major services in any of its 718 accredited centres in the country.
Oloyede said the board would commence the sale of the registration form on Jan.3, 2019 and would span six weeks.
