UTME 2018: What CBT owners told JAMB about exam malpractice


Owners of Computer-Based Testing Centres, CBTC, have called on the authorities of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, to learn to trust the accredited computer based testing centre owners, stressing that they have zero tolerance for examination malpractice.

President of the CBTC Proprietors’ Association of Nigeria, Mr Austin Ohaekelem stated this during a one-day seminar organised in Lagos to sensitised members of the group on the ethics, metrics and technicalities of the 2018 UTME.

He said: “We are re-branding the CBT centres in such a way that we are introducing zero tolerance for examination malpractice, JAMB should trust us enough and take us as true collaborators and stakeholders in the business and if they are able to do that, I want to believe we are on a straight way to zero examination malpractice.”

Ohaekelem maintained that the operators of CBT centres believe in examination integrity and corrupt free examination, noting that they were gentlemen and women of the country who had invested so much in the sector.

Meanwhile, JAMB had announced that the results for the 2018 UTME are ready, stating, however, that they would be delayed because there was need to preview them before they would be eventually released.
