JAMB bars parents from making changes to the profile of their wards


Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has barred parents, guardians or other proxies from making any changes to the data page or profile of candidates for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME)

JAMB stated this in a letter by the Director, Test Administration Department, on behalf of the Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede.

The board said only candidates could make such changes to their data page or profile henceforth.

They warned its zonal and state offices nationwide, including Computer-Based Test Centres not to transact any business on candidates’ profiles on the request of parents, guardians or other proxies, except the candidates come in person.

The board said it observed that there were cases of conflict on authorization of changes on candidate’s data, majorly between candidates and their parents or guardians.

They also noted that it would apply sanctions to any of its workers or CBT operators who default in the rule.
