10,000 caught cheating in JAMB

    More than 10,000 JAMB candidates were caught cheating in the just concluded UTME across 28 centres in Anambra, and the exam authorities said the cheaters have been handed over for discipline.
    JAMB’s coordinator for the state, Lynda Nwachukwu, said the examination was successful.
    “There was no disruption of the exercise in any of the examination centres,’’ she said, adding that the candidates adhered to the requirements of the examination, as JAMB provided all the materials required for the examination.
    However, there were complaints of system failure, according to some parents and candidates.
    The exam board was advised to plan well for examination in subsequent years to avoid the technical hitches that could discourage the candidates.
    There ere also complaints about how JAMB sends officials from one state to supervise examinations in another state.
    Some parents were asking candidates who experienced the computer failure to take their complaints to the State Ministry of Education.
    JAMB concluded the 2017 CBT UTME on May 20.
