The Registrar revealed this at a two-day summit on how to curb examination malpractice. The summit was an international event which held in Lagos.
Oloyede revealed that JAMB will not go down on its standards as the body will maintain its quality, integrity and equity in the conducting of examinations.
The summit, which was organised by the West African Examinations Council, had the theme: “Examination Malpractice; the Contemporary Realities and Antidotes”.
Oloyede spoke further on the importance of the CCTV device to the JAMB exams.
“There will be no compromise whatsoever. Without the deployment of the CCTV, one will just be making a mockery of the Computer Based Test.”
“This device has ensured that even if a cheating candidate was not caught during the examination, such candidate will be caught after the examination.”
“We will continue to ensure that with education, one can achieve everything and without it, one can achieve nothing.”
“It, therefore, goes to tell you that each one of us, must strive to achieve what is good, giving the significance of life and living,” he said.
He added that examination malpractice is not peculiar to Nigeria or Africa alone. He said it was something that eats up the world and need s to be tackled urgently.
“I have statistics with me which shows that what we have here in Nigeria as far as examination malpractice is concerned is a child’s play when compared to what is happening in other climes.”
“Today with the aid of technological devices for cheating such as smart watches and others the phenomenon is becoming alarming.”
“But in our own case, as these children are getting wiser, we too are getting ahead of them.”
“In fact, it is in line with this kind of development that the board has concluded arrangements to create centres for examination malpractice devices for future examinations,” he said.
Oloyede also called for adequate preparations and courseware development in order to stamp out the trend.
