JAMB deregisters 14 CBT centres over
alleged fraud as 157,000 candidates take
mock exam

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board
(JAMB) yesterday deregistered 14 Computer-
Based Test (CBT) centres in some parts of the
country over what it described as deceit and
technical infractions.

Curiously, the affected CBT centres were
among the 712 JAMB accredited nationwide to
participate in the mock exam and 2019 UTME
exercise scheduled for next week.
The board said it realised that the affected CBT
centres borrowed computer systems during
accreditation, to make up the number of

“Of 712 accredited CBT centres for the mock
and UTME exam, we were forced to deregister
14 of them on Monday for one infraction or
the other,” Oloyede said.

Speaking to journalist shortly after monitoring
the conduct of the exercise, Adamu expressed
confidence over JAMB’s ability to conduct a
credible examination.

However, a total of 157,000 candidates sat for
the mock UTME across the country.
Oloyede also disclosed that two officials of
JAMB escaped death in Lagos yesterday after

An official at the Centre, Mrs. Margaret Abe,
said only 60 candidates of the expected 154
turned up for the examination at Centre one,

the examination at the second centre.
She explained that the verification process was
successful and candidates complied with the
rules of the examination. The two-hour
examination, which started by 10am, came to
an end by 12am.

A male candidate, Dele Akingbe, who finished
his examination at three minutes past 11am,
confirmed that the conduct was successful,
saying: “Am through with my papers, I wrote
English, Government, Literature and CRS.”

Also a female candidate, Bamgboye Mariam,
