Jamb Rules for Parents of Jamb Candidates
Do not change the data page or profile of candidates for UTME. Only candidates could henceforth make such changes in their data page or Profile to avoid unauthorized changes. This was contained in a letter by its Director of Test Administration Department, on behalf of the Registrar, Prof Ishaq Oloyede.
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.
Also, you are not allowed to follow your child to the examination hall or impersonate. You should not be seen bribing a Jamb official for CBT Centre to gain favour.
Don’t pressure centres and Jamb for results upgrade. Jamb doesn’t upgrade or manipulate results. Note the things jamb don’t allow in the hall and help your kids implement the rules. Always ensure to comply with any Jamb rules as they come.
