The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has urged candidates for the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME to adhere strictly to the printing order of their examination slips, to avoid unnecessary issues. This is contained in the board’s weekly bulletin issued in Lagos.
According to the bulletin, printing of the 2019 UTME notification slip is on-going. Candidates are advised to print two copies of the examination slip in full, as one copy will be submitted at the centre while the second copy will be kept by the candidates for reference purpose.
The bulletin added that there would be no rescheduling of the examination, no matter the reason. It added that all candidates must ensure that they are verified using the Biometric Verification Machine.
Meanwhile, the board has also warned candidates and parents or guardians to desist from paying UTME application fees to schools or tutorial centres. It said that the warning became necessary owing to the growing practice of some elite schools and tutorial centres that collect money in bulk from candidates to register them en masse.
Over 1.8 million candidates registered for the examination which has been scheduled to commence on Thursday, April 11.
