No Biometrics, No Exam, JAMB Tells Candidates by PenPrince07: 2:18pm On Mar 12, 2018
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has told candidates for the 2018 UTME that they would not sit for the exam without undergoing biometrics.

JAMB's Head of Media and Information Department Fabian Benjamin said this on Sunday, adding that it is the only way candidates can be identified.

According  to him, those who do not do so, will not be allowed to write the exam.

“We want to clearly state here that any candidate who cannot be identified using biometrics will not be allowed to sit for this examination," Benjamin added.

“So far, over 450,000 candidates have sat for the examination and we have had reported cases where some of the candidates could not be identified as they placed their fingers on the machines for identification.

“Candidates sitting for this examination are not to be identified by mere registration numbers or names, but through the machines.

He noted that, “We know that at the point of registration for this examination, candidates’ details were captured with live photographs as well as their fingerprints.

“So, while going for the examination, it is only expected that candidates should be screened and identified using biometrics.

“This method should be able to call up candidates’ identity and so, there is no way a candidate will just come and mention his name and registration number and be allowed in without going through the right process."
