This study examined the perceptions of parents and tutors on the implementation of the Joint Universities Preliminary Examinations Board (JUPEB) Programme in Nigeria within the scheme of numerical archetype of the descriptive survey research design. The 73 study participants consisted of 28 parents and 45 tutors of the current JUPEB candidates enrolled in three JUPEB Centresin South-West Nigeria during 2019/2020 academic session. Two research questions and two null hypotheses were put forward to guide the study. Data collected through JUPEB Teaching Staff Questionnaire (Cronbach alpha coefficient of 0.89) and JUPEB Candidates’ Parents Questionnaire (Cronbach alpha coefficient of 0.93) were coded on the SPSS version 24 in which the research questions were answered using percentage and mean while the null hypotheses were tested using an independent samples t-test at 0.05 level of significance. Results showed that the parents and the tutors had significantly different perceptions of the challenges that candidates face with the JUPEB programme. Also, both of them had positive rating of the programme implementation, though their ratings also significantly differed. Based on these findings, it is recommended that parents should be inundated with the activities of JUPEB Programme from time to time through town hall meetings to keep them abreast of the development in JUPEB Centres.
