No fewer than 1.7m candidates have been confirmed for 2022 UTME.

9Janewshub.com.ng reports that  following successful registration of a total of 1,761,338 candidates, for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has formally kicked off the examination nationwide.

The examination which is expected to produce fresh undergraduates into tertiary institutions in Nigeria commenced on Friday 6th and is expected to end on May 16th 2022.

About 755 computer based centres were approved by JAMB authorities where students should take the examination.

Irrespective of power challenges, Dr Fabian Benjamin, JAMB’s spokesperson said the board had put in place all necessary logistics to ensure the smooth conduct of the examination.

Fabian explained 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.

He further stated that the ban on prohibited items was still in force, hence called on candidates to be careful not to run foul of the law as necessary sanctions would be meted out to violators of JAMB’s code of conduct.

The JAMB spokesperson identified banned items within the examination hall to include but not limited to flash drives, smart watches, calculators, recorders, mobile phones, spy reading glasses, jewellery, among others.
