JAMB CBT: Some Venues Extort Money from Candidates
Accrding to information reaching us, some JAMB cbt venues are extorting money from candidates. This is a personal report who wrote his exam on 8th March, 2016 was my UTME date. Although I am already a student of Abia State University Uturu. I was given biochemistry to study instead of my dream course medicine and surgery which I applied for.
So I decided to take JAMB this year and change to medicine and surgery. This would be my 3rd time of writing UTME. In 2014 I scored 218, 2015 I scored 219 in UTME. Like always, I had no intention of involving in any form of malpractice the examination.
But to my greatest surprise when I got to my exam venue at “jet age private school Obingwa” in Aba Abia state, I was told to pay 1000 Naira before I could be allowed through the gate. I refused and pleaded wit them to let me in, but they refused and wasted my 1hr before they allowed me because I didn’t pay them the gate fee.
Please my question is this? Is it that jamb don’t give money to centers for maintenance or what? After suffering and frustrating me, I ended up scoring 210 in UTME I prepared very well to smash.
I think Nigeria is now highly corrupt from the root level. Inside the UTME hall, a student will thumb print and a full grown teacher will enter and sit for him/her inside exam hall.
After all said and done, JAMB will claim malpractice free when am sure that this CBT newly introduced exam pattern is 100% malpractice guaranteed… please jamb should look into this matter and find a solution to this….
