                  Abuse by Approved Centre and Cyber Cafe Operations

                  It has been observed by the Board, that in the past, there were lots of irregularities during registration of candidates. Some of which are as follows:


                  Irregularities Observed


                  • Off-line registration means that candidates are given template form to fill and enter their details and the Registration centres would later enter their data for them on-line at a later time when the candidates were not present. 

                  • Registration Centres did off-line registration for candidates and in the process of completing them on-line, mismatched their images and made mistakes in the candidates’ data. 

                  • Registration Centres deliberately went to the hinterland to register candidates off-line in order to create Special Centres where they could further perpetrate Irregularities during examinations. 

                  • Punish uncompromising candidates by changing their centres and/or institutions without their knowledge/consent. 

                  • Swapped and replaced particulars of uncompromising candidates with others and used money paid for other candidates.

                  Measures Taken by the Board

                  • Payment for access code by Registration Centres has been cancelled. All systems in the Registration Centre will be enabled for the registration. 

                  • None of these systems therefore can be used for registration outside the Registration Centre. 

                  • Candidates will now have access to all the systems at the Computer Based Test (CBT) Centre for the registration exercise. 

                  • This is unlike before where only one system was used by the Computer Based Test (CBT) Centre for registration. 

                  • Candidates will be properly educated to understand that their registration numbers are private and security numbers which they must not divulge. 

                  • Any candidate who discloses his/her registration number, does so at his/her own risk. 

                  • An alert system has been created for notifications on changes in the candidates details at each stage of the registration process.

                  Accountability in Registration Centres


                  • Registration Centres are hereby urged to appoint credible staff to man their Centre to ensure credibility and accountability. 

                  • It has also been observed that some Public Registration Centres refused registration because of “low return”. 

                  • These returns are not low as claimed but officers in charge do not remit appropriately.
