JAMB To Parents: Stay Clear Of Examination Centres

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has issued a stern warning to parents to stay away from Computer-Based Test (CBT) centres during the 2024 UTME exercise. Parents who flout this directive risk being arrested, and their wards will be disqualified from sitting for the examination.

According to JAMB spokesperson, Dr Fabian Benjamin, this decision follows the intrusive behavior of some parents during previous exercises. Some individuals even disguise themselves as parents to infiltrate centres and perpetrate infractions.

Security operatives have been directed to work with CBT centres to apprehend any meddlesome parent who comes near the centres.

The Registrar, Prof Isha’q Oloyede, emphasized that candidates must have attained the age of 17 years, as stated in the national policy on education. Parents who accompany their wards to the examination venue aim to compromise examination officials and have likely “smuggled” underage children into the examination.

JAMB also advises candidates to guard their personal details, email addresses, registration, and phone numbers to avoid falling prey to fraudulent websites. Candidates found with such sites will be treated as accomplices and prosecuted.
