Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has further introduced Registration Officer Image as another process that would put in check the activities of fraudsters, and guide against manipulation during the ongoing 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, and Direct Entry, DE, UTME/DE registration as it warned candidates to ensure that the picture of registration officer displays on the screen.
The board said the new process would further strengthen the registration and ensure that candidates know where and who is registering them for the 2021 UTME/DE exercise.
As contained in a press statement issued to Journalist by the Head, Public Affairs and protocol, JAMB, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, the board has provided for the image of the Registration Officer to be displayed at the corner of the screen being used to register the candidate besides his biometric details that had been captured.
“Candidates registering for the 2021 UTME/DE exercise are urged to ensure that the picture shown on the corner of the screen is the same person registering them. If the picture does not match the face of the Registration Officer, candidates should immediately raise the alarm as such a person is not authorized to register them or they are in a completely unauthorized registration outlet.
“This measure is in addition to several others put in place to guide against manipulation, abuse and exploitation of candidates as well as forestalling examination malpractices,” it stated.
According to the statement, the Board’s innovations, including this one which comes with some little changes and additions to its processes, are to make the system better and fortified against those who are working non-stop to take advantage of the system.
JAMB, therefore, urged candidates who are the major stakeholders in the process, to monitor the process as they are being registered and adhere to extant instructions, rules, and regulations.
Meanwhile, the 2021 UTME/DE registration is ongoing and is due to close on 15th May 2021.
