JAMB to introduces Closed Circuit Televisions (CCTV) in exam centres

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has said all CBT center proprietors must install CCTV as one of the requirements for operations in this coming 2017 JAMB.

It also accused operators of the centers of sending fake messages to defraud candidates and providing mandatory training for same.

Among other newly approved standardization methods, the board said the CCTV must show live recordings of the “entry door (from the inside), exit door (from the outside), cross sectional coverage for examination rooms, external building and server rooms.’’

JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede said this on Tuesday during a standardization meeting with CBT centre proprietors at the University of Lagos.

Oloyede announced a total sum of N6,200, covering  the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination form, CBT center service fee and the JAMB textbook which would be paid by prospective candidates in 2017.

He added that more than one million candidates sat for the CBT variety of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination in 2015.

He, however, accused the CBT centers of “extorting candidates by charging above approved rates, subletting access codes to cyber cafes, encouraging multiple registration and punishing uncompromising candidates by changing their centers and/or institutions without their knowledge/consent,’’ among other infractions.
