The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) said it has come out with new guidelines to ensure seamless conduct of future operational processes, including the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME)
how does jamb set their questions:
“Furthermore, as a requirement for printing registration slips, a candidate must use at least two fingers and any of the two fingers taken would be used for biometric verification prior to entering the examination hall on the day of the examination.”
He further directed that the two verifiable fingers of all candidates must be consecutively indicated on the candidates’ registration and examination slips.
The Registrar also said that to further consolidate its data collection efforts, the board would consider separating UTME registration from that of Direct Entry (DE) beginning from 2023.
He added that to further condone illegal admissions and printing of indemnity forms, all candidates’ registrations, including UTME, DE and others, must be completed with fingerprint authentication.
He said: “The same must be used for the printing of registration slips and indemnity forms while Institutions must declare and provide the list of candidates admitted behind closed doors before the affected candidates could apply for the confinement of Undisclosed Illegal Institutional Admissions (CUIIA).”
