News Agency of Nigeria
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) announced that the exam would be held for 1,761,338 students who successfully enrolled for the exam at 755 computer-based testing centers.
Dr Fabian Benjamin, the JAMB’s Head of Media, stated in Abuja that the board has taken all necessary steps to guarantee a smooth test.
According to Fabian, all applicants will be verified into the test venue using the Biometric Verification Machine (BVM), which also serves as an attendance log in accordance with the Board’s policies.
He went on to say that the restriction on forbidden materials was still in effect, and that applicants should be cautious not to break the law since violators of the JAMB code of conduct would face severe penalties.
Flash drives, smart watches, calculators, recorders, mobile phones, spy reading glasses, and jewelry are among the prohibited objects in the test hall, according to Benjamin.
