“Start printing UTME slip” – JAMB tells 2020 candidates
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Saturday said prospective candidates for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) are free to print their examination slips for the Computer Based Test.
Dr Fabian Benjamin, Head, Media and Information of the board, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday that the examination slips for the UTME which is to commence nationwide on Saturday, March 14 could be printed anywhere.
Benjamin also stated that candidates are expected to look out for the locations of their centres before their examination dates.
“This is in order to avoid running around on the examination day trying to locate the centres, and as a result, getting to the centre late.
“It should be stated clearly now that lateness to the examination will not be tolerated, no matter the excuse,” he said.
Benjamin said that come 2021, the board’s portal would be integrated into that of the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC).
“Admission into our tertiary institutions are at the centre of national development, and therefore, any person or group of persons found to be truncating the national development process will not be assured.
“This integration will be done in such a way that anyone, be it from JAMB itself, institutions, the candidates or the general public, causing infractions of whatever type to our examination and its processes will be decisively dealt with immediately,” he said.
“The board will not relent in its effort, in ensuring that its processes are devoid of corrupt practices,” he said.
