JAMB exposes Over 10,000 Candidates who were Caught Cheating In Anambra


The Joint Admissions Matriculation Board (JAMB) says more than 10,000 candidates caught for

examination malpractices in the ongoing UTME in Anambra have been handed over to appropriate authority.
Lynda Nwachukwu, the Coordinator of the board in Anambra, disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Awka on Saturday, May 20.
NAN reports that the all computer-based testing (CBT) mode 2017 UTME, which started on May 13 in 642 centres nationwide, ended on May 20.
Ms. Nwachukwu said the examination, which took place in 28 centres in the state, was successful.
“There was no disruption of the exercise in any of the examination centres,’’ she said.
The coordinator said the candidates adhered strictly to the requirements of the examination, adding that JAMB provided all the materials required for the examination.
NAN correspondent, who monitored the last batch of the examination, reports that some parents complained of system failure in some CBT centres in the state.
Eucharia Okonkwo, a parent, said her daughter, who wrote the examination at the St Mary’s High School Ifite-Dunu centre, could not complete the examination due to the faulty computer and network failure at the centre.
According to her daughter, many candidates could not complete the questions in record time because of the faulty system.
Mose Mojekeh, Head, Department of Marketing at the Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University, told NAN on telephone that such system failure in UTME was not acceptable.
According to him, the hiccups could potentially deny young people from Anambra State university admission.
JAMB concluded the 2017 CBT UTME on May 20.
