The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board today warned prospective candidates to adhere strictly to the registration procedure for the 2019 UTME to avoid creating issues for themselves.
The Board’s Head, Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin gave the warning in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos.
“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 had 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.
