JAMB investigating 7 CBT centres in South East

 A total of seven Computer Based Test (CBT) centes are now under investigation by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) in the south eastern part of the country, reports ITRealms.

Out of the seven,  four of the centres are located in Abia State, two in Anambra State and one in Imo State.

JAMB also gave ITRealms the names of these centres to include Doreen Institute of Computer Technologies, Umuahia, Abia State, National Comprehensive Secondary School, Near 7-Up Plant, Obingwa LGA, Abia State,  Makac Global Intergrated Services Nig Ltd, Asa Road, Aba, Abia State and Pius Comprehensive Secondary School, Umuigwe-Amakama, Umuahia South L.G.A., Abia State .

Others are Prince Chums Global - Community Secontary School, Isuofia and Bintels Global Services, which is the Centre for Computer Education. While the last of the seven is Land Resources Technology, Owerri, Imo State.

ITRealms also report that JAMB during the just concluded rescheduled (mop-up) examination, in spite of all admonitions for centres to ensure that facilities work to required standards, the Board could not conduct smooth and flawless examination in certain centres where the examination had to be conducted.

The Centres concerned are hereby advised to work towards enhancing their efficiency if they wish to be retained for the Board subsequent activities. Whenever the concerned centres are satisfied that they have fixed their problems, they are to do the following immediately:

1. Invite the Board for inspection of their facilities which is not the same as accreditation exercise.
2. On the agreed day for the inspection, the centre should invite students commensurate to the capacity of the centre for a trial testing of the centre at full capacity.
3. The centre will run a trial test examination for two hours and this must be conducted smoothly without any hitch.
4. All facilities of the centres including the computer systems, cooling systems, CCTV Cameras, generating sets, backup inverters or UPS and other requirements would be put to test during the exercise.
5. The Centre must provide adequate security for such exercise.
6. The exercise would be observed by an Independent Technical Advisor chosen by the Board.

At the end of the exercise, and depending on the assessment of the Board and the Independent Technical Advisor, the verdict of the Centre’s suitability would be communicated to the Centre and it would determine whether any of the concerned centres would be allowed to participate in the Board’s future activities.
