Operators of Computer- Based-Test (CBT) centres have been warned by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) not to charge more than the approved N700 service fee per candidate in the ongoing registration for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
The fresh warning came on the heels of extra charges by the CBT officials on candidates in some centres in Kogi State, which has continued to generate ill-feelings among the candidates and parents, who described the development as purely extortion.
However, the Kogi State Coordinator of JAMB, Mr. Yisa Usman, in the board’s reaction to the development, assured the candidates that JAMB had so far nipped the situation in the bud, even as he drew the attention of prospective candidates to the fact that the Board had mandated all CBT centres not to charge more than the approved N700 service fee.
