UTME candidates can now self-generate profile codes – JAMB
Written by City Radio on December 12, 2022
Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination candidates can now generate profile codes themselves and save such for use when registration commences.
The board disclosed this in its Weekly Bulletin issued on Monday in Abuja.
According to JAMB, the development is part of measures to ensure a seamless 2023 UTME registration through the elimination of bottlenecks.
The board also said that the move was part of the build-up to the commencement of the exercise, billed to start in the next couple of weeks.
JAMB also advised candidates to note that the phone number used to send the text message to either of the two quick codes is automatically tied to their respective names.
This, it added, would also be used by the board in all communications relating to application, examination and admission.
According to JAMB, this is to avoid experiencing biometric verification challenges, as it has been established that application of henna on the fingers obstructs the process of biometric verification.
JAMB further stated that its “no biometrics, no examination” policy remained effective, while urging candidates to desist from any act that could jeopardise their chances of taking the UTME. (NAN)
