UTME: JAMB rolls out fresh guidelines for candidates

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) said it has rolled out fresh guidelines for future examinations.

This was contained in a statement made available to Blueprint Monday by JAMB’s Head of Public Affairs and Protocol, Dr Fabian Benjamin.

“In a bid to ensure seamless conduct of future operational process, including the conduct of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation examination (UTME), accreditation of centres, registration of candidates, examination processes, results management and general administration, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has gone all out to strengthen its operations within these core areas, just as it rolled out fresh operational guidelines and modifications to its technical services,” Dr Benjamin said.

The new developments were made known by the Board in a communiqué issued at the end of a five-day brainstorming Retreat held in Abuja recently.

The communiqué reads, “It became necessary for the Board to modify its operations towards achieving far reaching improvements on various issues emanating from the registration process, biometric challenges, and other 

operational procedures.”

In his remarks at the retreat, Registrar JAMB, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, warned that cybercafes and tutorial centres had been prohibited from participating in any of the Board’s exercises as such no CBT centre would be allowed to collaborate with them, adding that any violation of the directive, whether in part or whole, would lead to the revocation of the licence of the erring CBT centre.
