2022 UTME: “Exams would not be Rescheduled for Any Reason” – JAMB Tells Candidates

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said that the 2022 United Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) will not be rescheduled for whatever reasons.

The Head of Public Affairs and Protocol, Mr Fabian Benjamin gave the hint in a statement on Saturday while announcing that the slips for the examination scheduled for Friday May 6 to Saturday May 14 are now available for printing.

While emphasising on the fact that the 2022 UTME would not be rescheduled "for whatever reason", the spokesman also reminded candidates that the ban on prohibited items was still in force.

The prohibited items include flash drives, smart watches, calculators, recorders, mobile phones, spy reading glasses and jewellery among others.

Candidates would be checked in with the Biometric Verification Machine (BVM) in line with the "No biometric verification, no examination" policy.

Mr Benjamin further advised them to prepare ahead and stay close to their examination venues.

"If possible, they should pay a prior visit to their centres before the date of the examination", he said.
