The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has ordered all Computer-Based Test (CBT) centre owners to arrest any parent wandering near any of their facilities during the 2024 UTME exercise.

The order was issued at the final briefing of the Computer-Based Test (CBT) centre owners on Wednesday, April 17, 2024.

This directive became necessary following the intrusive disposition of some guardians during the Board’s previous exercises.

According to Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, the Registrar, any parent who disobeys this directive would not only be arrested, but his ward would also be disqualified from sitting for the examination.

The Board’s Boss noted that going by the extant national policy on education, a candidate for the examination must have attained 17 years.

He said: “Therefore, it is evident that these parents had not allowed their wards to pass through the classes as defined in the document, hence, the determination to follow their wards to the examination venue to compromise examination officials.

“At any rate, it is clear to any discerning observer that these parents deserve to be sanctioned as they had obviously ‘smuggled’ underage children into the ranks of those scheduled to sit the examination.”

The Board also advised candidates to keep their details, e-mail address, and their registration and phone numbers.
