In Brief – All That The JAMB board’s Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede Told Newsmen
“There will also be mock examination for prospective candidates, and this examination will be purely optional.
“Those who register for the mock examination will sit for it on April 8, but the UTME proper will commence on May 6 to May 20.
“We have put in place facilities that will make it easy for candidates to register. “For instance, as soon as a candidate creates his profile on his mobile phone, automatically, we will send our e-syllabus and e-brochure into his e-mail.
“So, even before going to pay for the mock, he already has all the materials that he will need for the registration.
“We are also talking to CBT centre operators not to extort candidates just as we are also asking candidates not to pay now for the mock examination which is purely optional.
“We will not charge fees for the mock examination because we want to do it as our own way of giving back to the society. “But the CBT centres will be allowed to charge a token of N700 for the mock and it is at that point that all prospective candidates for the mock examination are expected to pay.
“There will also be no cash transaction. Candidates can use their ATMs or if they must use cash, they can pay into the banks to avoid extortion of any kind.
“This is because there are people out there that want to take advantage of these candidates’ naivety. “So it is important for candidates to keep passwords to their e–emails, ATM cards and even registration numbers to themselves and safe, to avoid being exposed to those who might want to take advantage of them’’ he said.
“I started this morning by interacting with transporters, after which I met with the state coordinators and later with banks and now with CBT centre operators.
“The essence is to ensure that everybody involved in the preparation for registration of candidates for the examination will have adequate information and is carried along.
“We are equally distributing materials to centres all over the country; for instance, the e-syllabus and e-brochure will be distributed to every prospective candidate among other things,’’ he said.
However, to crown it all, more than 600 public and private centres had been approved for the conduct of this year’s UTME across Nigeria.
