JAMB adds new security feature to registration process
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has added feature to display the image of registration officers at a corner of the registration portal for candidates to identify authorised registration outlet for the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination Board (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE) exercise.
In a statement released by the board, the new measure is in addition to several others put in place to guide against manipulation, abuse and exploitation of candidates as well as forestalling examination malpractices.
“Candidates registering for the 2021 UTME/DE exercise are urged to ensure that the picture shown on the corner of the screen is the same person registering them,” the statement said.
It further explained that candidates should immediately raise the alarm if the picture does not match the face of the registration officer, as such a person is not authorised to register them or they are in a completely unauthorised registration outlet.
“The Board’s innovations, including this one which comes with some little changes and additions to its processes, are to make the system better and fortified against those who are working non-stop to take advantage of the system.
“It is, therefore, required of candidates who are the major stakeholders in the process, to monitor the process as they are being registered and adhere to extant instructions, rules and regulations”, it added.
This is coming weeks after JAMB spokesman, Fabian Benjamin, said all candidates must provide their National Identity Number (NIN) at the point of registration, which is due to close on 15th May 2021.
