The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has suspended the use of the National Identification Number for registration for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination UTME.
Ishaq Oloyede, the registrar of JAMB, , who stated this while briefing journalists in Abuja on Saturday, said
“The move was to provide more time for candidates to get their national identification numbers.”
He said the suspension was also to address the technical challenges experienced at some centres.
He also asked candidates to disregard the use of NIN for the 2020 registration and strictly comply with other procedures for the registration. He however said that JAMB will consider the use of NIMC for 2021 exams.
The board last year said from 2020, candidates will register for its examinations with their national ID numbers to solve the challenges of multiple registration.
Although alot of students complained about the stress of the Registeration of NIMC coupled with the Jamb Registeration process afterwards, some students still prefer they do not cancel this operation.
