JAMB TO PROSECUTE 34 STUDENTS, SIX CENTRES – JAMB REGISTRAR, OLOYEDE

Published

on

While monitoring the registration of 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME in Kano state, the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB has discovered some candidates who collide with Computer Based Test Centres, CBT for examination malpractice.

The Jamb Registrar, Prof Is-haq Oloyede reveal this while monitoring registration exercise in six different Jamb centres in Kano state and assure the general public that all the arrested were deal with accordingly.

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board undercover 34 prospective candidates who join hands with CBT centres for the purpose of examination malpractice.

Three staffs were caught registering for candidates, two of the allegedly staff were from the same Computer Based Test Centres, CBT, for examination malpractice and malpractice start from the beginning of registration.

The candidates were alleged of allowing the staff of Computer Based Test, CBT centres to thumb print for them. The candidates should be the one to thumb print themselves not the staff. If any candidates are facing any issues with thumb printing they should go to the Board Headquarters in their respective state for their Registration.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of the apprehended staff includes a 500 level Students of Bayero University, Kano (BUK) who was alleged of thumb printing for 14 prospective candidates respectively.

Another staff at the same centre was also arrested thumb printqing for 14 Students as well. While the third suspect was caught red hand by the Jamb Registrar, Prof Ishaq Oloyede, itself and have registered for 6 Students.

While addressing the issue, the Jamb Registrar, said the Board Policies stated that all candidates that want to register for Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME must thumb print by themselves, using their ten fingers respectively.

If any Students has problem with thumb printing with some of his/her fingers, the official registering such candidate will indicate finger as “Bad”.

But to our surprised, some staff recruited by some CBT centres are going against the lay down law and helping Students with thumb printing with the purpose of sleeping with such candidate or to collect some token amount of money from the candidate, especially female candidates, he said.

 

 

 

 

 

This same scenario has also occurred at a centre in Abuja, where a staff want to sleep with a student to register for her, but the girl refused. The case was reported to us and we immediately swing into action and dealt with the suspect.

This what most of them are doing to earn some token or to enjoy themselves and that’s why we commenced this supervision across the states in other to catching and dealt with anybody found with this unacceptable situation.

We don’t have any issues with our staff and CBT centres but the private CBT centres who have written an indemnity with the exam board to do the right thing are still doing wanting.

If such centre failed to produce the suspect, they will be the one to take the blame. Referring to the 509 level Students of Bayero University Kano, BUK, what type of lawyer will you becomes in the future when you’ve start colliding with Students now so as to fraud them or cheat them.

 

 

 

Oloyede said the 34 Students found colliding with the said suspect will not even be allowed to sit for the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME and if they do, their papers will be cancelled.

He advised Students to be guided by the UTME Registration and not anybody to thumbprint for them or scam them.

Recall that this year 2023, UTME commenced on 14th of January 2023 and will closed by 14th of February 2023.
