UTME 2018: JAMB reschedules exam for candidates without biometrics


Candidates who did not have their biometrics covered earlier during the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) would now take a rescheduled exam on 26th May.

This is based on information made available by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Sunday.

JAMB spokesperson, Fabian Benjamin, said that over 12,000 candidates were expected to sit for the mop-up exam in designated centres across the country.

EduCeleb.com recalls that during the 2018 UTME held in March, some candidates did not get to see their results due to some technical issues which JAMB said it was resolving.

Mr Benjamin noted that this development would affect such candidates too.

In his words, “It would also include those, who are yet to see their results since the end of the examinations in March till date and have not been involved in any form of malpractice.

“It will also include those, who were unable to print out their e-slips before the earlier examinations and those whose centres were cancelled for suspected malpractices.”

According to him, “there are centres that were cancelled because of suspicious activities but the board was unable to identify the actual culprits.”

He said those who were involved and caught in illicit acts and centres where a case of malpractice has been established against them would not partake in the rescheduled examinations.

He advised candidates, who might have fallen into any of the categories qualified for the examination to print their e-slips from Monday, May 21.

JAMB had earlier promised to reschedule the examinations for some candidates whose cases were exceptional, adding that candidates, who fall under such categories would be contacted before then.
