The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has scheduled a supplementary UTME for Saturday, September 24, 2022, for 67 candidates who registered but were unable to take the exam due to unforeseen circumstances.
According to a statement issued by JAMB’s Head of Public Affairs and Protocol, Dr Febian Benjamin, candidates will take their exams at specially designated locations.
According to Dr. Benjamin, following the 2022 UTME, the Board reviewed the entire process, and candidates who had biometric challenges were given the opportunity to sit for a mop-up examination.
The Board also announced that since the conduct of a mop-up examination was a stopgap measure, it would not be allowed to be a permanent feature of its calendar.
It noted that any candidate presenting any challenge(s) would have to indicate such peculiarities at the point of registration for them to be given special consideration.
Dr Benjamin pointed out that the decision to consider the candidates was to ensure that no single innocent candidate is punished unjustly.
The statement urges the 67 candidates to print their supplementary examination notification slips from Monday, 19th September 2022, to know the centres where they would be sitting for the examination.
