We hope JAMB work on this and apply the sactions required if any cnter is found guilty. Soe gruops of people are just working against the progress of development of education in Nigeria. These people are also contributing to getting candidates that are not qualified to our schools thereby blocking the chances of qualified ones.
The following piece was extracted from a news published on VanguardNGR:
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB said yesterday that only 10 candidates scored 300 marks and above in the last Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, in the country even as some candidates printed customised shirts and T-shirts where anticipated answers were prepared to cheat during the examination.
JAMB Registrar, Professor, ‘Dibu Ojerinde who made this known in Abuja while addressing newsmen said that 40 centres were involved in cheating during the examination, where some candidates paid between N5,000 and N20,000 to be allowed to cheat.
He however, said that JAMB was investigating the centres where malpractices took place, pointing out that those 40 centres might be barred from future UTME if found guilty. He also noted that he did not wish to pre-empt the sanctions to be applied until investigations were concluded.
