The Body maintained that CBT Centres that charged above the stipulated N700 would be made to pay a fine of N100,000, thereafter, refund the money they have collected.

The operational licenses issued to such centers by JAMB would also be revoked.

Part of the statement reads, “Centre owners are warned that failure to desist from the nefarious act would attract a fine of N100, 000 and possible revocation of a license issued by JAMB.

“Candidates are advised to report any CBT center charging above the board’s stipulated fee for any of its services,’’ it stated.

“In February, JAMB accredited CBT centers to register candidates, applying for part-time studies, Sandwich programs, National Open University of Nigeria programs, and distance learning programs.

“JAMB granted licensing, at the request of the CBT centers, as a measure to decongest its offices nationwide, following usually crowded exercises during the process,” it said.
