The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has declared that jewelry, mobile phones and Communication gadgets would not be allowed during the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
It also directed all Candidates who registered for the Examination to start printing their 2022 UTME notification slips from Saturday, 30th April, 2022, ahead of the exercise.
Mr. Fabian Okoro, Director, Information Technology Services, who stated this in JAMBULLETIN, said the 2022 UTME notification slip is available for printing by all Candidates who had registered for the examination scheduled to hold from Friday, 6th May, 2022 to 14th May, 2022.
He disclosed that the printing of examination notification slip is compulsory for all Candidates, as it enables them to know the venue, date, session and time of their examination.
According to the Director, “All Candidates are advised to print slips on time so as to know the location of their examination centres, date of their scheduled sessions and time of the examination beforehand especially with the adjustment in examination schedules this year. This would guide them in making necessary arrangements ahead of the exercise as the Board frowns at lateness to its examination, as no excuses would be entertained from any candidates as a stitch in time, saves nine,” he said.
JAMB explained that “Candidates need not visit any CBT centres for the printing of the notification slip as it can be done at any available internet point, be it private or public. To print the slip, Candidates are to visit https://www.jamb.gov.ng then click on 2022 UTME slip printing then insert registration number to print”.
The Examinations slip contains the Candidates’ important details like registration number, the centre to which they are to sit the examination within their chosen examination town and the expected time to be at the centre, according to the Examination’s body.
Meanwhile, the Examinations Board emphasized that all Candidates will be checked into the examination hall using the Biometric Verification Machine (BVM) which is also a register of attendance in line with its policy of “No biometric verification, no examination”.
It further noted that “Candidates are also to note that no examination would be rescheduled for whatever reason. Therefore, all Candidates are advised to prepare ahead and stay close to their examination venues, if possible, they should pay a prior visit to their centres before the date of the examination”.
