JAMB Registrar Disqualified Some CBT Centres and Disclose plan for Mega UTME Centres

JAMB Registrar Prof. Is-haq Oloyede disqualified some centres currently being used for its ongoing Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination UTME based on standard of facilities in such centres. He also announced the examination body’s resolve to collaborate with key stakeholders to establish mega centres for the conduct of its examination.

The JAMB Registrar revealed this at a news conference in Lagos on Thursday, after on-the-spot assessments of some Computer-Based Testing centres where the UTME was being conducted in the city.

He said he was not impressed with the standards of facilities at some of the centres, adding that the Board needed to be more stringent.

According to him, most of the centres currently being used for the examination fell short of the standards.
“Having gone round 69 centres in Lagos alone, I have disqualified four.

“In fact, I do not see up to 30 of these centres being up-to-date and meeting our set rules. We will re-assess these centres in order to protect the sanctity of our examination,’’ the registrar said.

“The plan currently on ground is to collaborate with my colleague professors and some other key stakeholders on how to create mega centres with a capacity to sit about 1,500 candidates at once in a centre.

“We will encourage those who have what it takes to establish CBT centres to do it.

“This is because we no longer want to work with some private centre owners,’’ he added.
