Anambra, Rivers top CBT centres suspended by JAMB

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has published the names of 47 suspended Computer-Based Test Centres ahead of the March 14 Unified Tertiary Matriculations Examination, with Rivers and Anambra states leading the pack with eight centres each.

The board noted in its weekly bulletin obtained by our correspondent that the 47 centres were suspended for registration infractions, extortion of candidates directly or through proxy, technical deficiency through third-party examination, and inability to produce JAMB security equipment in their care.

According to the breakdown by the board, eight centres were suspended apiece in Rivers and Anambra states; five apiece in Nasarawa and Delta; four in Bayelsa, and two apiece in Katsina, Kwara and Lagos states.

Oyo, Ondo, Osun, Adamawa and Niger had one CBT centre for each suspended.

The bulletin reads, “The centre owners and operators, who engaged in registration cyber infractions in the ongoing 2020 UTME have been handed over to the security agencies.”

Meanwhile, the JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, has warned CBT centres against collecting the candidates’ passwords or determining their passwords for them at the point of registration.

The registrar said it was improper for the CBT centres to also retain the forms filled by candidates which contained vital data.

“The CBT centres are obligated to return such forms to candidates after filling and not retain them. Candidates are to create their passwords, keep them as secret as they are not to be disclose to anybody, not even their parents.

“Such vital data, if exposed to third parties, could compromise their records as well as jeopardise their future academic aspirations,” the registrar said.
