JAMB instructs all candidates to re-examine their Data before Midnight



The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has urged prospective candidates for its Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) to crosscheck the data on their registration forms for the last time on May 6.

The board’s Head of Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Lagos. The call comes ahead of the 2017 UTME scheduled for May 13 across 633 centres nationwide.

NAN reports that registration of candidates for the examination was closed by the board by 12 midnight on Friday, May 5. According to Benjamin, the call for the crosschecking of data by prospective candidates was to ensure total inclusiveness. He added that the board intended to ensure that no candidate was left out during the examination due to one reason or the other: Benjamin said:

All candidates who desire to do any change on their registration details are urged to do so today as the platform closes finally by 9 p.m. of Saturday May 6. We are giving all the candidates the last chance to ensure that everyone is carried along and provided with equal opportunity. We also want to avoid a situation whereby candidates will have cause to complain of one incident or the other just before the commencement of the examination.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

    Jamb has done well but just as I have said severally all this effort will amount to nothing if scores of candidates could be manipulated or upgraded from backend
    The backend should be password protected and should not be known by any junior or senior IT staff.
    Once candidates have submitted or auto submitted on expiration of the allotted time it should become read only from backend and frontend.
    It should NOT be subject to change through password of any kind.
    Jamb backend must be rugged
    Once this is done then Jamb will earn credibility.
    Questions must be standard.. All this is necessary for jamb to carry 100% or at least 90%. This will help universities lecturers to have quality students.
