NMC CBT cost £90 (#42,000) but test centres in Nigeria for instance are charging £139 (#65,000)

A petition has been launched on the popular petition site change.org urging UK NMC to stop test centres in Nigeria, Ghana and other African countries from exploiting nurses sitting for CBT, the first phase of exam written by foreign trained nurses who want to move to UK. The petition which started less than 12 hours has since gone viral with over 500 signatures. The petitioner wondered why Pearson Vue accepts cards from Nigeria for most of its exams including NCLEX but rejects card payments from applicants sitting for CBT Exam.

In a swift reaction one of the leading CBT Test Centres in Nigeria Bellaz Educational Services has given insight into why Nigerian cards are not accepted for CBT registration. The Manager of the test centre Mrs Ogechi Onyemem said her business holds only legal rights to make payments on behalf of applicants from Nigeria.

Many Nigerians in the past have accused Nigerian business owners conducting foreign exams in the country of painting the country's payment system black to foreign partners so they can be given the sole right of making payments on behalf of applicants which creates room for extortion.
