Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB Candidates Were Asked To Pay 1000 Naira At UTME Venue Before They Could Enter To Write Their Exam
Corruption Is on rapid increase in this country, we thought that the mass failure was due to technical issues which JAMB Apologizes Over Technical Issues Encountered In Some Exam Centres but the issue of invigilators extorting money from candidates before exam is alarming, the worst part is that it’s a must, Below is an experience of a JAMBite:
From An Angry Student “Obinna Kalu*…
8th March, 2016 was my UTME date. Although I am already a student of Abia State University Uturu. I was given biochemistry to study instead of my dream course medicine and surgery which I applied for.
So I decided to take JAMB this year and change to medicine and surgery. This would be my 3rd time of writing UTME. In 2014 I scored 218, 2015 I scored 219 in UTME. Like always, I had no intention of involving in any form of malpractice the examination.
But to my greatest surprise when I got to my exam venue at “jet age private school Obingwa” in Aba Abia state, I was told to pay 1000 Naira before I could be allowed through the gate. I refused and pleaded with them to let me in, but they refused and wasted my 1hr before they allowed me because I didn’t pay them the gate fee.
Please my question is this? Is it that jamb don’t give money to centers for maintenance or what? After suffering and frustrating me, I ended up scoring 210 in UTME I prepared very well to smash.
I think Nigeria is now highly corrupt from the root level. Inside the UTME hall, a student will thumb print and a full grown teacher will enter and sit for him/her inside exam hall.
After all said and done, JAMB will claim malpractice free when am sure that this CBT newly introduced exam pattern is 100% malpractice guaranteed… please jamb should look into this matter and find a solution to this….
