As we all gear up towards the conduct of the Universal tertiary matriculation examination in 2020, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has barred parents, guardians and other persons from making any changes to the data page or profile of candidates as they prepare for the examination registration.
This has become imperative to prevent fraud in the examination as the board requested that only candidates could make such changes to their data page or profile.
In a statement made available to us on Monday by its Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, JAMB warned its zonal and state offices nationwide, including Computer-Based Test Centres not to transact any business on candidates profiles on the request of parents, guardians or other proxies, except the candidates come in person.
The board noted that it would apply sanctions to any workers or CBT operators who default in the rule. we see this new directive as a step in the right direction in curbing the rising cases of examination malpractices in the country.
