The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has set Saturday, September 24, 2022 as the date for a supplementary Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
67 candidates were affected because they registered but were unable to take the exam due to unforeseen circumstances.
Candidates will take their exams at specially designated locations, according to a statement issued by JAMB’s Head of Public Affairs and Protocol, Dr. Febian Benjamin.
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 Benjamin.
The board also stated that because the mop-up examination was a temporary measure, it would not be allowed to become a permanent fixture on its calendar.
It is noted that any candidate who presents a challenge(s) must indicate such peculiarities at the time of registration in order to be given special consideration.
Benjamin stated that the decision to consider the candidates was made to ensure that no innocent candidate is unfairly punished.
The statement urged the 67 candidates to print their supplementary examination notification slips beginning Monday, September 19, 2022, in order to learn where they would be taking the exam.
