JAMB Reveals Where Candidates With Biometric Problems Will Write Exams
The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) has said that any candidate with biometric issues must now report at its office in Abuja to resolve the issues and write the examinations there.
This was part of new measures initiated by the board to curb cheating during its examinations after it discovered that many candidates use issues of biometrics to concoct a reason to cheat.
According to the board, such a candidate will write the examination in any of the board’s accredited centres in Abuja.
“Candidates with biometric challenges can only register at JAMB headquarters in Abuja,” Mr Benjamin said.
“No other CBT centre is allowed to register such candidates.
“They will also sit for their examination at JAMB headquarters in Abuja. We noticed that some candidate(s) will just go to these centres and say they can’t register, then, they begin to ask for a reschedule or a special day,” he said.
It should be noted that in 2019, sale or registration for all candidates (UTME /DE) including for those outside Nigeria, will run from January 10 to February 21.
Also, the 2019 computer-based test examination will begin on Saturday, March 16 and end on March 23.
The spokesperson stated that a new measure has also been put in place for candidates to lodge their complaint to the board’s headquarters directly.
“ For ALL complaints on JAMB processes, candidates can create a support ticket at (support.jamb.gov.ng) with his/her email address registered on the Board’s site. The candidate then provides his/her name, phone number and the nature of issues, select a complain area on a dropdown and then summarised the nature of the complaint. He/she may also be attached supporting documents (if available ) then send,” he said.
