JAMB Crackdown: CBT Centres to Take Action Against Parents Near Exam Venues


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has issued a stern directive to all Computer-Based Test (CBT) centre owners to take immediate action against any parents found loitering near their facilities during the ongoing 2024 UTME exercise.


This directive, delivered by JAMB Registrar Prof. Isaq Oloyede during a virtual meeting with CBT centre operators and owners, aims to curb interference during the examination process. According to Dr. Fabian Benjamin, JAMB spokesperson, parents caught breaching this directive risk disqualification of their wards from the exam.


The move comes as a response to previous instances of parental interference leading to exam malpractice and disruptions. Infiltration by impostors posing as parents has also been a concern for the board.


To ensure a smooth conduct of the exams, security personnel will collaborate with CBT owners. The board reaffirmed its commitment to upholding educational standards by addressing issues of underage candidates and maintaining examination integrity.
