JAMB spokesman, Fabian Benjamin, told Leakblast.com that all was set for the start of the examination and that the board has put in all measures to ensure smooth conduct of the exercise.
Fabian had, in a statement earlier in the week, advised candidates who registered for the exercise to print their 2022 UTME notification slip which contains information on location of candidate’s examination centre, date of scheduled sessions, time of the examination and other necessary information.

He reiterated that all candidates would be checked into the examination hall using the biometric verification machine which is also a register of attendance in line with the board’s policy of “no biometric verification, no examination.”
He reminded candidates that the ban on prohibited items is still in force, thus asking candidates to be careful not to run foul of the law as necessary sanctions would be meted out to violators of its code of conduct.
He listed the banned items within the examination hall to include but not limited to flash drives, smart watches, calculators, recorders, mobile phones, spy reading glasses, among others.
