JAMB New Rules: UTME Candidates to Be Registered Under CCTV Cameras.
INFORMATION reaching Nigeriaschool.com.ng has it that the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has issued fresh standardization rules, guidelines and registration processes to licensed operators of Computer Based Test, CBT, centres to eliminate fraudulent practices in the system ahead of the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME.
According to the new JAMB rule contained in a statement by the Board’s registrar, Isiaq Oloyede, (Also a Professor of Islamic Studies) at a meeting with CBT owners seen by PREMIUM TIMES on Thursday, 6th July, 2017. CBT operators are required to ensure that as soon as a UTME candidate complete their registration, they should upload the handwritten forms of the candidates. This it said will make easy for whatever errors to be easily identified and traced.
Jamb Registrar Isiaq disclosed that there were errors in the registration exercise in the UTME 2017 Exercise.
"This has led to many candidates requesting for one form of correction of data or the other," he said. In its effort to eliminate all forms of errors and also hold people responsible for negligence and mischief, the registrar said, "All candidates must register under the lenses of the CCTV Camera and the footage of which should be uploaded to the Board Headquarters. We have discussed with the telecommunication service providers the details of the required bandwidth and data for the operation. "These measures are aimed at curtailing the need and demand for corrections. Thus, any centre that makes a mistake during the registration, as will be proven by the uploaded forms and CCTV footage, will be liable for such errors as they will not be paid for the total number of candidates they have committed such errors. This measure has become necessary as it has come to the notice of the Board that some centres make deliberate mistakes in order to extort candidates."
