JAMB Bans Parents from Unauthorized Access to Candidates Profile

2020 UTME Data Correction: Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Bans / Prohibits Parents, Guardians, CBT Centers and Other Stakeholders / Agencies from Unauthorized Data Correction on Candidates Profile with Immediate Effect (2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination UTME).

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) wishes to inform all Parents, Guardians, Teachers, CBT Centers and Other Stakeholders from making unauthorized access or changes to candidates or wards data on the JAMB e-Facility Profile page without the consent of the candidate.

This was contained in a letter by the Director, Test Administration Department, on behalf of the Registrar, Prof Is-haq Oloyede to all concerned stakeholders.

Read Full Content of Letter Below:

“It has been observed that there are cases of conflict on authorization of changes on candidate’s data, majorly between candidates and their parents or guardians.
“This is in addition to fraudsters taking advantage of the naivety of some candidates to collect their vital access codes to effect unauthorized changes on a candidate’s profile.
“Consequently, nobody, including parents or guardians or any proxy should be allowed to transact any business on any candidate’s profile.
“No third party should be allowed access into or alter the profile of any candidate at any of the board’s offices or any Computer-Based Test Centres.
“Only candidates themselves (not with anybody, any agent or parent/guardian) should be entertained to conduct transactions on their profile at the board’s offices and the computer based test centres. There is no exception to this instruction.
“All JAMB Zonal and state offices and accredited and approved CBT centres are hereby directed to strictly comply with this instruction without any waiver or use or misuse of discretion.
“The board’s system is automated to monitor, report and alert on access and alteration on every candidate’s profile, including providing information on the person, the place and the system or facilities that transacted such activities.
“The board will not hesitate to sanction any person or centre that fails to comply with this directive.”

The above letter implies that JAMB has barred parents, guardians or other proxies from making any changes to the data page or profile of candidates for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations(UTME).

Only candidates are authorized to make such changes to their data page or profile henceforth.

The board warned its zonal and state offices nationwide, including Computer-Based Test Centres not to transact any business on candidates’ profiles on the request of parents, guardians or other proxies, except the candidates come in person.

The board will not hesitate to sanction any of its workers or CBT operators who default in the rule.

The Ban is necessary due to the rising cases of conflict on authorization of changes on candidate’s data, majorly between candidates and their parents or guardians.

What is your take on the above decision of the board?
