In our recent post on my forum www.heroslodge.com were I told you people that JAMB can be valid for 2 years, so here is the explanation from the JAMB registrer on how its possible.

How UTME Results Could Be Valid For More Years

THE Registrar/Chief Executive Officer of Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Dibu Ojerinde, explained yesterday that the result of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) could be valid for two years, if there was aptitude test.

The JAMB boss spoke in Abuja at the 11th
seminar of Independent Corrupt Practices
and other related offences Commission
(ICPC).

He noted that the aptitude test was different from achievement test, adding:
“Achievement test is what we are doing now.

We have a syllabus.”
Ojerinde said JAMB had secured 375 centres for next year’s UTME, adding that
government was planning to give the board
109 additional centres.

He noted that last year, JAMB used 156
centres to conduct the UTME.

Ojerinde said in the nearest future, JAMB
would use Iris of the eye to verify
candidates.

“In two years time, everywhere in Nigeria
will be full of centres. Very soon, UTME
examinations will be done individually
between January and December,” the JAMB
boss said.

He lamented that some universities were not using the JAMB album sent to them to verify candidates given admission letters.
He noted that candidates were losing billions of Naira yearly for not filling forms properly.

He warned: “Parents should also stop hiring
mercenaries to write examinations for their
wards. Some candidates hide exhibits in
private parts.”

ICPC Chairman Ekpo Nta said security
operatives alone could not fight corruption,
adding that all hands must be on deck to do the right thing and report corrupt activities.

He said the forum derived its legal
framework from section 6 (b-f) of the
Corrupt Practices and Other Related
Offences Act 2000, which empowers the
commission to prevent corruption through
system studies and reviews of government
agencies.
