FINALLY: Jamb Cracks Down On Success Centers

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB have warned parents against taking their wards to the so-called success centres. 

The board said it has come to their knowledge that some elite schools and tutorial classes take lump sums from unsuspecting parents and students in order to register and write UTME for them.

It goes further to note these centres and schools engage group registrations which are frowned on by the board. This is because these channels end up distorting the candidate's data in the process which makes it difficult for the candidate and for the board. 

These elite schools and business centres are in the habit of collecting so much money from the parents while promising sure success. 

According to a statement released by the board, “the public is therefore urged to be mindful of unscrupulous elite schools who exploit parents by collecting huge sums of money to register their students in a group.

“More often, this registration is done in unauthorized centres. The board’s examination is not a school-based examination and therefore, does not require candidates registering in groups.

“Candidates must register individually and not in groups,” it said.

Jamb further threatened that any school who continues in this illicit activity will be shut down or sanctioned. Meanwhile, candidates and parents are advised to be wary of these institutions as they are nothing but channels for extortions. 

Parents are advised to take their wards to a certified Jamb centre to register their wards to avoid unnecessary trouble.
