The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has issued a warning to all Computer-Based Testing (CBT) centres against illegal dealings with candidates of the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
Jamb Registrar Professor Is-Haq Oloyede issued the warning after monitoring some centres in Abuja on Saturday.
According to the registrar, any centre operator caught compromising the conduct of the examination, which started on Saturday May 13, would be blacklisted.
The Jamb registrar disclosed to newsmen at one of the centres that five centres were already being investigated for alleged illegal dealings.
Commenting on the examination, the registrar said the conduct of the candidates and the centres used for the examination was satisfactory, adding that subsequent ones would be better managed.
He also applauded the type of technology deployed by the various centres he monitored.
JAMB announced on Friday that 1.7 million candidates were registered for this year’s UTME.
It also disclosed that 357 of the registered candidates were prison inmates.
