Stay away from CBT centres, JAMB warns parents

The Joint Admission Matriculation Board has warned against accompanying their children to Computer Based Test centres , which it said may hamper the successful conduct of the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination .

This was made known on Tuesday by the Lagos State JAMB Coordinator, Mr Babatunde Bamisoye , during the matriculation of new students at the Federal College of Education ( Technical) , Akoka , Yaba .

Bamisoye said , “ As far as UTME is concerned , we do not allow parents to come into the premises of the centres . My advice to parents is that they should keep off because their coming has no value , rather it may hinder the success of the exam. Parent need only to get the students prepared with transport money . Allow them to go to their centres and return home . ”

The coordinator also said the board had visited the 78 accredited CBT centres and certified them technically fit to conduct the examination starting on April 11.

Emphasising the need for candidates to stay clear of the JAMB prohibited items, the Bamisoye warned , “ Candidates should not bring in any of the banned equipment , like glasses or scientific wrist watches , as necessary sanctions will be given. The Registrar, Prof. Is ’ haq Oloyede , has said that whosoever is caught will be sanctioned. Those with special cases like recommended eyeglasses are understandable , besides that , no one should come in with such things as listed. ”
