The Jamb Coordinator of the Lagos State, Mr Babatunde Bamisoye, during the matriculation of new students at the Federal College of Education (Technical), Akoka, Yaba, warned parents against accompanying their children to Computer Based Test centres, which he said may hamper the successful conduct of the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.
He said that, “As far as UTME is concerned, we do not allow parents to come into the premises of the centres. My advice to parents is that they should keep off because their coming has no value, rather it may hinder the success of the exam. Parent need only to get the students prepared with transport money. Allow them to go to their centres and return home.”
He also said that the board had visited the 78 accredited CBT centres and certified them technically fit to conduct the examination starting on April 11, and also emphasized the need for candidates to stay clear of the JAMB prohibited items.
