2023 UTME: JAMB Pays N1.5b To CBT Centres

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said it will continue to ensure every candidate is guaranteed unfettered access to higher education through the provision of a level playing field.

The exam body gave the pledge on Thursday while announcing it has paid a total sum of one billion, four hundred and seventy-eight million, four hundred and sixteen thousand naira (N1,478,416,000) to owners of non-JAMB Computer-Based Test (CBT) centres nationwide for the services they rendered during the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

The board also said it would continue to leverage state-of-the-art technology, not only to deliver quality assessments but also to protect the integrity of its examinations.

Head of JAMB’s Public Affairs and Protocols, Fabian Benjamin, who disclosed this in a statement, added that most of the centres used for the examination are not owned by JAMB, noting that some ICT facilities belong to tertiary institutions.

“The Board is proud to announce that all centre owners who rendered quality service during the just-concluded examination have been appropriately commended for a job well done and paid accordingly.

“As a responsive organisation, the Board will continue to ensure that every candidate is guaranteed unfettered access to higher education through the provision of a level playing field for all,” Benjamin said.
