The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has cautioned private cyber cafe operators against extortion of prospective candidates who want to upload their results on the board’s website. The Head of Media of the board, Dr Fabian Benjamin, gave the caution in an interview with newsmen in Abuja today.
Benjamin said that the caution became necessary following several complaints made to the board by the victims, on fraudulent activities by some private café operators. He said the candidates complained of high amount of money they were being charged by such operators to upload their WAEC results on JAMB website.
According to him, candidates who have had their results uploaded at the point of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) registration need not do that again, except for those who registered with awaiting results. He added that this upload should not cost more than one hundred naira.
It would be recalled that the Second Choice Admission is to commence from the seventeenth of October to the seventeenth of December, 2018.
