JAMB to monitor Jamb 2018 candidates with CCTV cameras
Jamb 2018 is going to make news. Jamb is now set to begin monitoring candidates with CCTV cameras. According to the examination body, the move is to reduce the rate at which Jamb candidates engage in malpractice yearly.
The policy will be enforced beginning from Jam 2018/2019 examination. According to the Joint admission and matriculation board (BOARD), those who are not caught during the examination will definitely be caught after the examination. Read the full story below…
Prof Ishaq Oloyede, the registrar and chief executive of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has said that candidates, who wish to sit for the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, will take the examination under the surveillance of Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras.
The registrar while speaking during a briefing in Abuja said the measure was necessary and that it is aimed at preventing examination malpractice during the UTME.
Oloyede also said that the measure will further strengthen public examinations, particularly entry level examinations into higher institutions.
For CBT centres, any operator who does not install CCTV cameras before the exam will not be accredited for the UTME.
The registrar also cautioned parents, guardians and candidates to avoid patronizing those “fake vendors of UTME forms.”
He also stressed that JAMB had neither started the sales of the form nor authorised any Cyber Cafe operator to sell the form on its behalf. Do not fail victim of fake Jamb 2018 registration.
