UTME Candidates With Biometric Issues Will Take the Exam In Abuja – JAMB

Spread the love

The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) has stated
that 2019 UTME candidates with Biometric issues during the
registration will have to write the examination only in Abuja. The board
also said it will be responsible for the cost of transportation of the
candidates to and from Abuja. This was contained in the weekly
bulletin of the Board.

JAMB said it decided to introduce this measure after it discovered that
many candidates use the biometric issue as an excuse to cheat.


Recall that the board had earlier stated that any candidate with
biometric issues must report at its office in Abuja to resolve the issues
and write the examination.
It was gathered that out of the 52 candidates that were refered to
Abuja due to biometric issues from the various states, only 22 of them
actually showed up in Abuja for registration despite the fact that the
board would be responsible for transportation.
JAMB equally stated that it would not reschedule examination for any
candidate on account of a biometric challenge.
The exam is expected to commence March 16th if the Gubernatorial
elections do not drag beyond March 9th, 2019.
