The Registrar, Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, said one centre was delisted from participating in the 2022 UTME examination for system failure, just as 175,000 candidates sat for its mock examination.

Oloyede, who spoke in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday said the conduct of the examination was impressive and satisfactory.

The registrar identified the centre as Brain Point Computer-Based Centre (CBT) at Oko-Oba in Lagos for allegedly violating the requirement for the conduct of an effective examination.

“I have done sample inspection in Lagos and Ogun. The turn-out was impressive and we are satisfied with the level of performance.

“In the process, a centre, Brain Point CBT centre in Oko-Oba, Lagos State which could not sustain their generator set is automatically delisted.

“I have given an instruction that the candidates in this should be refunded their full money,” he said.

Oloyede, who said that the CBT centres were allowed to collect up to N1,000 from candidates instead of the earlier N700, added that they needed to give their best in the conduct of the examination.

He called on some tertiary institutions on the need to maintain their facilities, saying of some their facilities were substandard, and hence needed upgrading.

He however expressed satisfaction with the examinations in all the states of the federation, saying he had gotten reports from officials on the field across the country of a well-conducted examination.

“We are happy with the general performance of the examination and we urge all students to make sure that they learn from the lessons of the mock examination which is to test their ability.
