Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has revealed some vital information and position of the board that would help prospective candidates in the upcoming 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
The Head of Media and Information of the JAMB, Dr Fabian Benjamin, disclosed to newsmen on Sunday in Lagos saying, “We are set to go. Logistics have been put in place to ensure a smooth process.
“Like you may know, over 650 CBT centres have been accredited for this year’s examination and the board expects nothing short of the best practices.
“We have clearly defined the process, just like we have also put mechanism in place that will address any challenge or challenges that may arise before, during and even after the examination.
“We also want to emphasise the fact that there is no going back on the use of the National Identification Number (NIN), for the acquisition of the registration documents by prospective candidates,” he said.
“My advice to the candidates ahead of the registration is to ensure that they seek advice or help from officials of the board.
“They should not involve third parties. They should always ensure too that they secure their personal data.
“They should not disclose it to anyone, not even the JAMB officials, because doing so could lead to mutilation of their records and other implications that could affect them much later in life.
“The board also wishes to state that the sale of Direct Entry forms closes same day as the UTME forms. There will be no extension.”
