5. Cybercafés and tutorial centres had been prohibited from participating in any of the Board’s exercises as such no CBT Centre would be allowed to collaborate with them, adding that any violation of the directive, whether in part or whole, would lead to the revocation of the license of the erring CBT Centre.

At the registration point, candidates with bad fingerprints would be scheduled for the examination as “Exemption Candidates” and their registration slips would be colour-coded and visually different from those for other candidates and such candidates would sit for their examination in Abuja on the last date of the national examination calendar and their results would not be released until after being subjected to proper scrutiny.
