The Registrar, Joint Admissions, and Matriculation Board, JAMB, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, has declared that there will be no rescheduling of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, for any student like it did last year.

Prof Oyolede made this known when he addressed the press in Bwari, Abuja, on Thursday.

He also maintained that candidates whose thumbs were not recognised for verification by the biometric machines might have registered illegally.

According to him, “They were using something they call team viewer which will definitely give biometric problem because these candidates were not physically captured at the authentic centre.

“We would not be held responsible for that and there won’t be any form of rescheduling for anybody, I did that last year out of ignorance.’’

The registrar, however, described the general conduct of the UTME nationwide as highly successful.

He said the success was because of the use of improved modern technology.
