UTME Bio metrics Is Here To Stay – JAMB

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), says it will not rescind its decision on the use of bio metrics in the conduct of its Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).


According to the weekly board’s bulletin issued on Sunday, 2nd of March 2019 in Lagos. The Bio metrics Verification Machine (BVM) was introduced by the board as a way to get rid of the various forms of examination malpractice.

The BVM was a security mechanism used to authenticate the identity of candidates based on physiological characteristics as it provided access to the individual data – included in the bulletin, is how important bio metrics is in the conduct of the boards examination.

The essence of a biometric verification process is in its ability to provide  protection and security against impersonation.

The frequency of impersonation during the previous UTME, before the  necessitated the introduction of the BVM for capturing bio metrics of candidates to eliminate counterfeiting.

The all fingers of each candidates are captured during registration  process and are used to admit them into the examination hall.

JAMB opted for finger print recognition, despite the various types of biometric solutions to eliminate all forms of fraud.

Biometric security has proven to be a breakthrough for the board, as the finger prints recognition technology provides a certain degree of security that makes it impossible to forget, loose, compromise or steal data already captured and saved.

The bulletin noted that the adoption of biometrics in the conduct of  examination is here to stay.

It reassured candidates that their finger prints would not be used for any purpose other than identification.

According to the bulletin, the benefits of the BVM are immense and indispensable to the assessment process.

It added that candidates with issues regarding biometrics must visit the boards headquarters in Abuja to be captured.

    We never shut down for the flu, sars, swine flu, or other viruses. I do believe much, not all, is political. President Trump is hated by the left and some right, and want to stop him from being reelected, and blame him for all of our troubles. Our government and many governors are corrupt.

    Angela Crews Beardsley What happened to George Floyd is wrong, but this……. is just as WRONG. I am so sad for this officer. He was serving his community and trying to make a positive difference. The shooter, perpetrator, deserves full punishment, life in prison. This rioting needs to stop now. It is not about Floyd anymore. It is anarchy. Political activist trying to breakdown society and create chaos and influence elections. Disgusting that the youth are so WOKE and can’t bsee they are being played. And… I stand with all lives, black, white, brown, red, and cops…..they all matter. Politicians are using the people to divide and conquer here. And they are succeeding. I pray for this man’s family and George’s. They are suffering needlessly. This evil is going to destroy us. The riots are cancerous and will only hurt not help. God help us please.

    My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net
    from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a variety of websites for about a year and am worried
    about switching to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
