JAMB blacklists 48 CBT centres for exam malpractice

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has blacklisted 48 Computer-Based Test centres.

They were blacklisted over their alleged involvement in extortion and organised examination malpractices during the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.

JAMB’s Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, made the disclosure on Wednesday in Abuja at a news conference at the end of an enlarged meeting with external examiners and other stakeholders in the conduct of the 2017 UTME.




Oloyede also announced the cancellation of the results of 59,698 candidates who sat for the examination.

He added that another 24 CBT centres had been suspended for one year for failing to live up to expectations.

“The (24 CBT) centres will not participate in the 2018 UTME, but they can be reconsidered for 2019 and above.

“The de-listing of 48 centres from participating in the board’s examination in future is as a result of serious technical deficiencies, extortion, organised examination malpractices and other damaging infractions.”
