[Anambra]–The Joint Admissions Matriculation Board (JAMB) says more than 10,000 candidates caught for examination malpractices in the on-going UTME in Anambra have been handed over to appropriate authority.
Mrs Lynda Nwachukwu, the Coordinator of the board in Anambra, disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Awka on Saturday.
NAN reports that the all computer-based testing (CBT) mode 2017 UTME, which started on May 13 in 642 centres nationwide, ended on May 20.
Nwachukwu said that the examination, which took place in 28 centres in the state, was successful.
“There was no disruption of the exercise in any of the examination centres,’’ she said.
The coordinator said that the candidates adhered strictly to the requirements of the examination, adding that JAMB provided all the materials required for the examination.
NAN correspondent, who monitored the last batch of the examination, reports that some parents complained of system failure in some CBT centres in the state.
Mrs Eucharia Okonkwo, a parent, said her daughter, who wrote the examination at the St Mary’s High School Ifite-Dunu centre, could not complete the examination due to the faulty computer and network failure at the centre.
According to her daughter, many candidates could not complete the questions in record time because of the faulty system.Please Follow Us @ThePageNg
