Over 10,000 JAMB candidates were involved in exam malpractices in Anambra state.
Mrs Lynda Nwachukwu, the Coordinator of JAMB in Anambra disclosed on Saturday.
“There was no disruption of the exercise in any of the examination centres."
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. A 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. Okonkwo advised JAMB to plan well for examination in subsequent years to avoid the technical hitches that could give the candidates psychological trauma.
Dr. Mose Mojekeh, Head, Department of Marketing at the Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University, said on a telephone, that such system failure in UTME was not acceptable. According to him, the hiccups could potentially deny young people from Anambra State, university admission.
