Students seeking admission into the tertiary institutions in Ogun state and their parents have been warned against registering for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) at the unauthorized centres.
The Ogun state chairman of the Computer Based Test (CBT) Centres Owners, Mrs Titilope Ero, who issued the warning in an interview with Rockcity FM in Abeokuta, said that the Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) has not begun registration of candidates for the 2017 UTME.
Ero alerts that the unauthorized centres, especially the cybercafé operators, have started defrauding unsuspecting students, who according to her, are desperate to register for the examination.
The delay in the sale of UTME forms and registration of the examination, according to her, is to fine-tune some arrangements in order to have a hitch-free UTME this year.
On the requirements to met by the CBT centres, including the installation of closed circuit television (CCTV) and a minimum of 250 and above terminals (computers), she said the directive is a reminder of some of the conditions for accrediting CBT centres for UTME.
