We Have Accredited More Than 650 CBT Centres Nationwide – JAMB

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said more than 650 Computer Based Test (CBT) centres have so far been accredited for its upcoming 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

The board recently fixed this year’s examination for March 14 to April 4, while the optional mock examination is scheduled for Feb. 18.

Speaking recently, The Head, Media and Information of the board, Dr. Fabian Benjamin said arrangements for the sales of JAMB form has been finalized.

He added that they expect nothing but the best job from the registered CBT centers.

His words, “We are set to go. Logistics have been put in place to ensure a smooth process.

“Like you may know, over 650 CBT centres have been accredited for this year’s examination and the board expects nothing short of the best practices.

“We have clearly defined the process, just like we have also put mechanism in place that will address any challenge or challenges that may arise before, during and even after the examination.

“We also want to emphasise the fact that there is no going back on the use of the National Identification Number (NIN), for the acquisition of the registration documents by prospective candidates.”

“My advice to the candidates ahead of the registration is to ensure that they seek advice or help from officials of the board.

“They should not involve third parties. They should always ensure too that they secure their personal data.

“They should not disclose it to anyone, not even the JAMB officials, because doing so could lead to mutilation of their records and other implications that could affect them much later in life.

“The board also wishes to state that the sale of Direct Entry forms closes same day as the UTME forms. There will be no extension,”

JAMB Form will be up for sale from Monday, Jan. 13, to Monday, Feb. 17.
