JAMB has instructed that only accredited JAMB CBT Centres, tasked with conducting the actual UTME exams, will henceforth be the only authorised centres for registering candidates for the exams.
This decision by the board has led to the disqualification of most cyber cafes and business centres, that would usually register candidates for UTME exams.
In as much as a whole lot of centres have been disqualified, a few of them only need little upgrade to attain the status of becoming an accredited JAMB CBT Centre.
Becoming an accredited JAMB CBT centre will enable you;
1. Get access code to register UTME Candidates for the upcoming exams.
2. Conduct UTME Exams for JAMB
3. And render other JAMB services to candidates
