The Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) has released a list of suspended computer-based test (CBT) centres following reports of massive examination malpractices.


Published on the board’s official website, the list consists of 22 CBT centres across the country with Edo, Ekiti, Abia and Nasarawa having the highest number of suspended centres.

Four centres on the list are situated in Edo, while Ekiti, Abia and Nasarawa have two centres included in the document containing the blacklisted centres.

More centres on the list spread across Ebonyi, Abuja, Akwa Ibom, Delta, Cross River, Benue, Bauchi, Anambra, Akwa-Ibom, Abia, Plateau, Oyo and Taraba among others.


According to JAMB, the centres were found guilty of offences such as charging candidates more than authorized fees, registration misconduct, and conducting unauthorised examination.

After much delay, the board had on Saturday released the results of 1,792,719 candidates who sat for the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

Is-haq Oloyede, JAMB registrar, had revealed that the board withheld the results of 34,120 for various infractions during the examination across the nation. He also added that 15,145 results were withheld for further clarification.
