JAMB’s Head of Information, Fabian Benjamin, while giving the in Abuja, said the board had secured the conviction of three persons who were arrested for impersonation during the examination.
Benjamin said the board discovered that some fraudsters were using candidates’ registration numbers to access their information, thereby using it to defraud the candidates.
According to him, once persons with dubious intention have access to the profile code or registration of any candidate, it can be used to do “many things to the candidate”.
He said: “We have discovered that some of these fraudsters are using candidates’ registration numbers to have access to their information. You know you can use a registration number to print examination notification and because of the public outcry that we should make it free for candidates to print from any point, they can print at home and from anywhere.
