The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) will hold a supplementary UTME on September 24 for 67 candidates who registered but were unable to take the exam due to unavoidable circumstances.
This was stated by JAMB’s Head of Public Affairs and Protocol, Dr Febian Benjamin, on Monday in Abuja.
Benjamin stated that the candidates’ exams would be held in specially designated locations.
Following the 2022 UTME, the board reviewed the entire process, and candidates who had biometric challenges were given the opportunity to sit for a mop-up examination, according to him.
He added that the board also stated that because the mop-up examination was a stopgap measure, it would not be allowed to become a permanent feature of its calendar.
He went on to say that any candidate who presents a challenge(s) must indicate them at the time of registration in order to be given special consideration.
“The decision to consider the candidates was made to ensure that no innocent candidate is unfairly punished.”
“As a result, these 67 candidates are urged to print their supplementary examination notification slips beginning Monday in order to know where they will be sitting for the examination,” he said.
