The 2022 Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) will start on Friday, May 6th, 2022 across Nigeria.
The 2022 UTME exam will run till May 14, 2022, IDOMA VOICE reports.
According to the regulatory body, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), the examination will be conducted for 1.8 million candidates that successfully registered for the examination in 755 registered and accredited Computer Base Test (CBT) nationwide.
Fabian Benjamin, JAMB spokesman said all was set for the start of the examination and JAMB has put in all measures to ensure smooth conduct of the examination.
Dr. Fabian had in a statement earlier in the week advised candidates who registered for the exercise to print their 2022 UTME notification slips which contains information on location of candidate’s examination centre, date of scheduled sessions, time of the examination and other necessary information.
He reiterated 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 of “no biometric verification, no examination.”
He, thus, reminded candidates that the ban on prohibited items is still in force, thus asking candidates to be careful not to run foul of the law as necessary sanctions would be meted out to violators of its code of conduct.
He listed the banned items within the examination hall to include but not limited to flash drives, smart watches, calculators, recorders, mobile phones, spy reading glasses, jeweleries, among others.
