THE Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has said that its assessment has shown that more than 90 per cent of A’ Level results presented by candidates to gain admission into universities were fake.
The examination body said its focus on developments around the Interim Joint Matriculation Board, IJMB, and the Joint Universities Preliminary Examination Board, JUPEB, has resulted in the arrest of over 47 proprietors and lecturers of schools running the programmes in the last one year.
To curb the development, the board said through its Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, that the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, has approved the establishment of what he described as Advanced Level (A Level) Certificates Data Bank in the country.
The Minister of Education has approved the establishment of A-Level data bank, meaning that if for example, in a particular university, 90 percent of those who presented their A level results for admission were found to be fake, the data bank will ensure all A’ Level results are registered under one platform to bring about standardisation and integrity of the certificates.
