JAMB has issued a strong warning to JAMB candidates over JAMB 2022.
Newsone reports that the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has warned candidates writing the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) to ensure punctuality as it would not alter its timetable for any candidate.
This online news platform understands that the warning on JAMB 2022 was issued by the Board’s High Power Opinion Leader (HPOL), Mr Abdur-Rahman Balogun, in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) after monitoring the exercise in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital on Friday, May 6, 2022.
Newsone Nigeria reports JAMB started UTME 2022 today, Friday, May 6, 2022, for 1,761,338 candidates that successfully registered for the examination in 755 registered computer-based centres.
“If your child will be writing the JAMB exam this weekend, especially those for the 7 a.m. papers, please note that the exam body will not consider them to write in the other scheduled time if they missed their time schedule.
“As a body, we will not alter their timetable simply because some students are held up in traffic.”
He explained that, unlike in previous years, Jamb will be running four sessions this year, which makes it difficult for them to wait before commencement of the exams.
“Get to your centre as early as possible. Once the exams start, no student will be allowed into the examination hall, hence, early arrival is important,” he warned.
JAMB urged parents to take their ward to the venue of their examination as early as possible to avoid the risk of not writing the examination due to lateness.
