JAMB to Scrap the use of scratch cards for UTME registration and results Checking

The board’s Registrar Prof. Ishaq Oloyode announced on Tuesday the 20th day of September, 2016 that the Joint Admission and Matriculations Board (JAMB), will cancel the use of scratch cards to register and check UTME results.

Speaking at the National Executive Council meeting of the Non-Academic Staff Union (NASU) in Abuja, he said this would begin next year. Students would generate a PIN number for themselves from their phone or computers before registering for examinations, he said.

He said that JAMB would not support a situation where banks and vendors hoard the cards, only to sell them at a higher price. He also challenged NASU to get involved in the ownership of Computer-Based Testing Centres.
