2021 UTME EXAM: JAMB sets up rogue centres to catch exam cheats


The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has disclosed that it has set up what it called “rogue centres” in order to catch candidates who are seeking centres where they could be assisted to cheat during the examination.

According to him, “To catch a rogue you may need to pretend that you are one too”. He equally stated that those who come to the rogue centres to register, no matter how much they pay, stand disqualified from the examination.

“We found out that the headquarters of those operating such rogue centres is in Igarra, Edo State and we are clamping down on them. “It is unfortunate that parents involved in this practice are even educated and rich. People who can afford to pay the huge amount demanded of them. A candidate is expected to pay N4, 700 for registration, but some centres are collecting more than that from candidates” He stated.

Candidates are therefore advised to discard the idea of malpractice and prepare adequately for the examination and to help you achieve that, download the Myschool JAMB CBT Mobile App for android phones or the Myschool JAMB CBT Software for Computer systems now.
