Fabian Benjamin, Head of Media of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says 1,761,338 candidates are to take part in the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) nationwide.
The examination is scheduled to run from May 6 to May 16.
JAMB stated that the candidates successfully registered for the examination in 755 registered computer-based centers.
Dr Fabian Benjamin, said in Abuja, that the board had put in place all measures to ensure smooth conduct of the examination.
He said that all candidates would be checked into the examination hall, using the Biometric Verification Machine (BVM), which is also a register of attendance in line with the Board’s policy.
He further said that the ban on prohibited items was still in force, hence calling on candidates to be careful not to run foul of the law as necessary sanctions would be meted out to violators of JAMB’s code of conduct.
Benjamin identified banned items within the examination hall including but not limited to flash drives, smartwatches, calculators, recorders, mobile phones, spy reading glasses, and jewelry, among others.
