We will not reschedule the exam for people who came late – Prof Is-haq Oloyede

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Saturday said there would be no rescheduling of examination for candidates who come late for the mop-up examination.

Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, JAMB Registrar, made this known in Bwari, FCT, while reacting to complaints by candidates taking the mop-up examination at the board’s Computer-Based Centre (CBT).

The Registrar disclosed that the exam was a supplementary Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) being conducted in 170 centres across the country.

According to Oloyede, 85,000 candidates slated for the mop-up exam were notified through text messages, emails, publications and also warned candidates against lateness.

He said “there is nothing you can do … we placed adverts in newspapers, sent e-mails and text messages and if you did not get it, it means that you were not invited for the exam.

“A bulk Short Message Service (SMS) was equally sent to your telephone numbers that you provided during the registration.

“We will not reschedule the exam for people who came late.

Oloyede explained that the computers had been programmed to work under a specific time frame and urged candidates to engage the computers regularly to avoid disruption.

“If you do not use it, it will go off. When you sit and you are not doing anything within that time frame, we also monitor from our system to ensure you that candidates are not cheating,” Oloyede said.
