According to JAMB’s Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede “We are no longer going to allow the cyber cafes to do the registration exercise for prospective candidates because they are extorting candidates and overcharging them.
“They also do services they do not have the capacity to do, coupled with the fact that there was no way of tracking them because they were not registered.
“Another major reason is the mix-up they create on the data of the candidates. Some will just ask the candidates to write their names and other details down for them.
“On accumulating such data, they now get all of them mixed-up, thereby creating problems for these candidates.
“We know there will be uproar because they make a lot of illegitimate money from these services, but we cannot leave the candidates at their mercy.
“Particularly when people will make noise that it is JAMB that was extorting them,’’ he said.
All prospective candidates are advised carry out their registration and access the board’s major services in any of the 718 CBT approved and accredited centres in the country.
…. by this, no cyber café can render to candidates any of the below mentioned services:
✓ Creation of JAMB Profile for Candidates ✓ Upload of O’ level and A’ level results ✓ Application for Condonement of Illegitimate Admissions (formerly Late Application or Regularization) ✓ Application for Fresh JAMB Admissions Letter ✓ Application for Reinsurance of Admission Letter due to change in programme or institution
The Board has disclosed that it would commence the sale of the registration form onJan.10, 2019 and would span six weeks.
