JAMB introduces new innovations for the successful conduct of 2019 UTME


Ahead of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, Registrar, Joint Admission and Matriculations Board, says the board has introduced new innovations for the successful conduct of 2019 UTME.

Oloyede made this known in Abuja on Monday at the meeting of critical stakeholders on strategic planning and preparations for supervision and evaluation of administration of 2019 UTME slated to hold between April 11 and April 15.

He said a separate indicator has also been created for the deaf to differentiate them for special attention at the examination centre.

He called on candidates to comply with the rules of engagement governing the registration and examination of the UTME.

According to him, biometric verification will be the only mode for admittance of candidates into the examination centres.

He added that increasing threat of identity fraud during the UTME before the advent of BVM necessitated its introduction for capturing the biometrics of candidates to counter fraud.

The registrar said the board had approved the use of 708 Computer Based Test centres across the country for the conduct of the examination.
