Thousands of registered candidates across the country may likely not be able to seat for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination as some of the Computer Based Test centres’ operators defaulted by disobeying the rules governing the registration of candidates as provided by the body. Ishaq Oloyede the JAMB registrar, disclosed this at the examination body’s headquarters in Abuja. He also “handed over” the 38 operators to the police for further investigation. According to the registrar, “the operators illegally moved their registration facilities outside their allocated locations”.
The registrar explained that Virtual Private Network(VPN) access is issued to each registered CBT centre “but the board gathered that some of the approved centres went ahead to grant third-party access to cyber-cafés and business centres operators against the board’s directive.”
