The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said that no fewer than twenty-two candidates with biometric registration difficulties would sit for the coming 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) at the Headquarters of the examination board in Abuja.
JAMB also said it will be responsible for the cost of transportation of the candidates to and from Abuja.
According to the spokesman of the examination board, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, out of the 52 names that were sent to the board headquarters from the states, only 22 showed up for registration despite the fact that the board would be responsible for transportation.
The board said that the candidates with biometric issues will write the examination in any of the board’s accredited centers in Abuja while noting that the board decided to introduce the measures after it discovered that many candidates use the biometric issue as an excuse to cheat.
