JAMB accredits Florin, Classic as CBT centers in Ejigbo
By Felix Kuyinu
Following the clamour by applicants to know the accredited CBT centres in Ejigbo, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has given accreditation to two centers in the community where the applicants could get themselves registered for the 2019 UTME examination.
The body stated that Florin High School and Classic International Schools situated in the area are centres approved as CBT registration centers where the applicants can have a successful registration.
Over the years, the community has been jostling for accredited centers as many applicants have been swindled by the non-accredited centers operating within the area.
JAMB also noted that candidates who fail to get themselves registered at the registration points are not acting under the directions of the body and could end up not getting registered for the examination.
The Board also warned prospective candidates to adhere strictly to the registration procedure to avoid creating issues for themselves, as disclosed by the Board’s Head, Media and Information, Dr. Fabian Benjamin.
Benjamin stated that all candidates desirous of registering for the examination must ensure that they start off by sending their full names, (surname first) to the code provided by the board, adding that the candidates must ensure that no other person had initially used the registered telephone number for that purpose.
“No two persons must use a single GSM number in commencing the registration process as it will not be acceptable.
“The way it is configured is one individual to one telephone number that will remain exclusive to that single individual for the purpose of the entire examination process. Not even siblings can share a particular telephone number for this purpose.
“For instance, if candidate A used a telephone number to send his name to the code in the past, candidate B, who is a sibling to A cannot use that number for that purpose again. But candidate A, who probably might not have been able to pass the examination, can still use that particular line again to send his name to that code whenever the need arises,’’ he explained.
In the case of a missing telephone line, Benjamin suggested that it would be safe to get a fresh telephone number for the purpose and not a ‘welcome back’ to send to the code for the candidate’s profile number.
“No two persons can share a telephone number for the purpose of confidentiality. As a rule, it has always been one person to a telephone number to get a profile number that will enable candidates do the proper registration and capturing,’’ he said.
