PROVISION OF BROCHURE TO CANDIDATES
As we all know each year during JAMB Registration brochures are being given out to students, though not all, as most students might not be issued the brochure due to its limited supply, well the Board is happy to let you know that this year will be quite different as brochure will be downloaded online immediately after registration has been enabled, so get your Android device and Pc ready, continue reading below:
In order to minimize errors during registration by candidates and also to ensure that candidates
have ready access to the brochure needed for registration, the brochure will be provided in three (3) modes which are:
i. The brochure will be on the JAMB portal. As soon as a candidate creates his/her profile on the JAMB portal, there will be a link that will take him/her straight to the brochure.
He/she is to confirm reading the brochure for continuation of registration
ii. As soon as the candidate creates his profile, an electronic copy of the brochure will be automatically sent to his/her e-mail which he/she has provided.
iii. A CD of the brochure and Syllabus will be given to him/her at the bio metric capturing site.
At the point of capturing the bio metrics, there must be an evidence that the candidate collected the brochure CD and recommended book.
ACTIVITIES OF BANKS AT THE REGISTRATION CENTER
So after reading the above instructions we will move over to the roles the Banks have to play during your registration in-order to aid faster and more convenient registration process.
All Registration Centers will be given a list of accredited banks.
Each Registration Center will be allowed to choose the bank it would like to work with.
After choosing the bank, an officer from the bank will be stationed at the center to do the following:
Assist candidates to create their profile and pay through any of the payment options they wish to use.
Collect Seven Hundred Naira (N700) per candidate for either registration and/or bio metric capture directly into the account of the center.
The banks will be expected to open avenues of payment:
Payment of Application Fees
Payment of Seven Hundred Naira (N700) to the designated account of the Registration Center.
At the end, give a receipt to each candidate for the Seven Hundred Naira (N700) payment for registration or bio metric capturing at the center.
ABUSE BY APPROVED CBT CENTERS AND CYBER CAFE OPERATORS
Last years and subsequent years Cyber agents have been involved in many irregularities and abuse during registration, this has prompted the examination board to map out strict measures that will be meted out to cyber agents who defaults during the 2017 registration exercise.
1. IRREGULARITIES OBSERVED:
It has been observed by the Board, that in the past, there were lots of irregularities during registration of candidates. Some of which are as follows:
Off-line registration means that candidates are given template form to fill and enter their details
and the Registration centers would later enter their data for them on-line at a later time when the candidates were not present.
Registration Centers did off-line registration for candidates and in the process of completing them on-line, mismatched their images and made mistakes in the candidates’ data.
Registration Centers deliberately went to the hinterland to register candidates off-line in order to create Special Centers where they could further perpetrate Irregularities during examinations.
Punish uncompromising candidates by changing their centers and/or institutions without their knowledge/consent.
Swapped and replaced particulars of uncompromising candidates with others and used money paid for other candidates.
MEASURES TAKEN BY THE BOARD
Payment for access code by Registration Centers has been cancelled. All systems in the Registration Center will be enabled for the registration.
None of these systems therefore can be used for registration outside the Registration Center.
Candidates will now have access to all the systems at the Computer Based Test (CBT) Center for the registration exercise.
This is unlike before where only one system was used by the Computer Based Test (CBT) Center for registration.
Candidates will be properly educated to understand that their registration numbers are private and security numbers which they must not divulge.
Any candidate who discloses his/her registration number, does so at his/her own risk.
An alert system has been created for notifications on changes in the candidates details at each stage of the registration process.
ACCOUNTABILITY IN REGISTRATION CENTERS
Registration Centers are hereby urged to appoint credible staff to man their Center to ensure credibility and accountability.
It has also been observed that some Public Registration Centers refused registration because of “low return”. These returns are not low as claimed but officers in charge do not remit appropriately.
