The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Monday warned operators of accredited Computer Based Tests (CBT) centres to desist from extorting candidates or face severe sanctions.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Monday warned operators of accredited Computer Based Tests (CBT) centres to desist from extorting candidates or face severe sanctions.

It stated in its weekly bulletin that its attention had been drawn to reports that some operators charged higher than the N700 fee stipulated for services rendered to candidates.

According to the board, any form of exploitation will not be condoned, else a N100,000 fine will be imposed on culprits after they had been made to refund money collected.

“Centre owners are warned that failure to desist from the nefarious act would attract a fine of N100, 000 and possible revocation of a licence issued by JAMB.

“Candidates are advised to report any CBT centre charging above the board’s stipulated fee for any of its services,’’ it stated.
