The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced that candidates will have to register for its examinations with their National Identity Management Number (NIM) to solve the challenges of multiple registrations starting from 2020.
This was revealed by Fabian Benjamin, Head of Media of the board at a one-day capacity building workshop organised by the National Examination Council (NECO) for education correspondents in Keffi on Friday.
Speaking on the topic: “Understanding Reporting in the 21st Century”, said the development would be facilitated through a partnership with the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC), Benjamin said the experience has shown that malpractice in the conduct of public examination, especially the UTME, actually begins with the registration exercise.
“Four days ago, we cancelled results of four candidates because of examination malpractices we discovered after the examination.
“The board is on top of the situation as it has the determination and technology in place to forestall attempts at compromising the registration process.
“An intrinsic part of the strategies adopted by the board is ensuring that its registration period is kept very short.”
He further revealed that registration of candidates would now take 30 days instead of a longer period to contain the chances of fraudsters’ strategies to circumvent the process.
While appealing to parents to desist from encouraging their children to commit examination malpractices, he said the board had planned to ensure that by 2020 the issues of biometric problems in the course of registration would be over in attending to biometric challenges.
“In 2018, we have about 24,490 biometric challenges but we have been able to bring this down to 22 in 2019; but if we are able to stand on our ground by 2020, we will not have any biometric challenges,” he said.
He added that no Computer Based Test (CBT) centre would be used for the conduct of its examinations except those centres whose administrators were the owners of the CBT centres.

The West African Examinations Council has finally open up on the much anticipated 2019 WASSCE results. WAEC says results should be expected “within the next 24 hours”.

Abubakar Gana, the acting registrar of NECO, said that this way, the body had broken the monopoly of WAEC, claiming that since its establishment in 1999, WAEC had had no choice but to live up to its responsibilities.
“Since 2000, we have been conducting examinations and one advantage I want you to understand is that we have given WAEC a wakeup call and they are now living to their responsibility.
“You may recall that there were times in the past where universities and other tertiary institutions took very longer period for them to admit students.
“But with our coming, we started releasing results within 90 days, which is a period between three months. We started like that but as I am talking to you today, the last release we had was 43 days.”
