JAMB introduces pin to replace scratch card

- Advertisment -

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board says it will adopt “pin vending” for the 2017 UTME test in place of the scratch card formerly used.

The board’s Head of Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, said on Wednesday in Lagos that it would no longer use scratch cards.
He said, “Candidates, wishing to sit for the 2017 examination, should start getting themselves familiar with the newly adopted process of pin vending by the board.
“We must make ourselves open to change like it is obtained in other climes.
“We are no longer going back to the use of scratch card; that method is outdated.
“Candidates wishing to register for the examination will just make online payment and get a pin with which they can upload their data.
“This new pin vending will be accessible through the options of web payment, ATM issued cards like Visa, Verve, and Master card, online Quick Teller, mobile application and Bank Branch case/card.”
Benjamin assured that the board was working hard to redress all challenges experienced by candidates during its 2016 UTME as it was preparing for the 2017 diet.
The spokesman also said that the board would begin validation of UTME centres across the country soon.
