As the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, sets to begin April 11th, 2019, The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has said biometric verification would be the only mode of allowing candidates into examination centres. This means that any candidate that fails Biometric Verification will not be allowed to take the exam.
Therefore, no biometric verification, no examination,” the board warned. JAMB also said that “no candidate should be kept waiting if he or she cannot be verified, saying such candidate should be directed to contact JAMB.
It was also gathered that the Biometric verification will also serve as attendance register during examination. “Photo albums will only carry pictures with no marking points for either Present or Absent.
All examination officials, including the security agents are to ensure compliance with all guidelines, rules and regulations on the examination.
Recall that JAMB had explained earlier that the introduction of Biometric Verification Machine, BVM, was one of its attempts “to get rid of all forms of malpractice in the conduct of its UTME.
