The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) in a statement on Sunday, said that all universities who charged more that N2,000 from applicants for its Post-UTME examination must refund the excess payment.
The statement was issued by Fabian Benjamin, the Board’s Head of Public Relations, in Abuja.
He added that it is unfortunate how some institutions disregarded the instruction given by the Minister of Education, Mr. Adamu Adamu, concerning payment of Post-UTME.
JAMB also said that it would partner with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to conduct Computer Based UTME examination for foreign Nigerian candidates abroad in 2018.
The 2017 UTME for foreign candidates was held on on September 30 in Gambia, Saudi Arabia, United Kingdom, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Benin Republic, Ethiopia, South Africa and Cameroun.
“We are already promoting CBT in line with international best practices; we have taken it to some countries in Africa, we need to do more to encourage the practice.
“We have even gone ahead to see how we can put some countries on the global map by conducting our public examination there through CBT.
“What we want to do is to partner with the ministry to be able to key into the global technology revolution as part of our foreign policy.
“We must be able to maximise profit, especially from West African countries that we are offering assistance, through scholarship, to school in Nigeria.
“We cannot achieve much by looking at things from naira and kobo, but through diplomatic relations there will be adequate room to gain through conduct of examination abroad,” he said.
