2019 UTME: JAMB speaks on candidates using single phone number

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, on Friday warned
prospective candidates against sharing mobile phone numbers during
their registration process.

JAMB's Head of Media and Information, Fabian Benjamin gave the warning
while urging candidates to adhere strictly to the registration
procedure for the 2019 UTME to avoid creating problems for themselves.

Speaking with News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, in Lagos, Benjamin stated
that all candidates desirous of registering for the examination must
ensure they start off by sending their full names, (surname first) to
the code provided by the board.

Benjamin stated that candidates must ensure that no other person had
used that telephone number for that purpose.

He said: "No two persons must use a single GSM number in commencing
the registration process as it will not be acceptable.

"The way it is configured is one individual to one telephone number
that will remain exclusive to that single individual for the purpose
of the entire examination process.

"Not even siblings are allowed to share a particular telephone number
for this purpose.

"For instance, if candidate A used a telephone number to send his name
to the code in the past, candidate B, who is a sibling to A cannot use
that number for that purpose again.

"But candidate A, who probably might not have been able to pass the
examination, can still use that particular line again to send his name
to that code whenever the need arises,'' he explained.

Commenting on missing mobile phone lines, Benjamin suggested that it
would be safe to get a fresh telephone number for the purpose and not
a 'welcome back' to send to the code for the candidate's profile
number.
