The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) have authorization a prospective Computer –Based Test (CBT) centres all over Nigerian to inaugurate CCTV (Closed –Circuit Teleision) Cameras.

This was made by the Board in order to ensure that subsequent conducts of the UTME (Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination) are in sync with international best practices.

The endorsed was unveiled on Tuesday by Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, the Registrar of the JAMB board, during the body's interactive summit with the operators of CBT centres across the federation at the University of Lagos (UNILAG).

Mr. Oloyede said the decision was made to avoid past errors and wipe out the noticeable irregularities facing the conduct of the examination. Saying that any centres who fail to abide by the stipulate rules would not be certified for registration of candidates and also conducting the examination.

He said: “What we have said is that we are in a period of change, and what that means is that everything we have been doing must be reviewed. Whatever we have been doing rights will have to be reinforced while what were doing wrongly will be changed. For the purpose of the CBT centres, we have to introduce the CCTV so that whatever that is going on at our centres can be monitored anywhere in the world.”

The Registrar explained that due to the new method, any CBT centres must have 250 desktop or Laptop system in a single room, with about 25 backups system before qualified to hold the examination.

However, Mr. Oloyode told the Examination Operators that during the data capturing, the 10 fingers of the candidate must be captured, saying that any candidate whole his 10 fingers cannot be captured by the CBT Centres should be redirect to the headquarters of JAMB in FCT, Abuja.
