Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) will soon stop the use of scratch cards for UTME registration and checking of results – See details below;
Prof. Ishaq Oloyode, the Registrar of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) disclosed that the board will soon stop the use of scratch cards for JAMB registration and checking of results.
The registrar disclosed this on Tuesday at the National Executive Council meeting of the Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) in Abuja and added also that this might likely come into implementation as from 2017.
He said that once this becomes effective, students would generate a PIN number for themselves from their phone or computers before registering for examinations.
Prof. Oloyode frowned at situations whereby banks and vendors hoard the cards, only to sell them at a higher price.
He equally charged NASU members to involve in the ownership of Computer-Based Testing Centres, saying those who own the centres are businessmen merely exploiting students.
