Jamb officials speaks on candidate using Phone number for registration: The popular exam board called JAMB warned interested students applied for the 2019 exam, against sharing of their contacts during the registration process.
The Head of Media and Information, Fabian Benjamin gave the warning while urging interested students to adhere strictly to the registration procedure for the 2019 UTME to avoid creating problems for themselves.
During the brief discussion with News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, in Lagos, Benjamin said that all interested students desirous of registering for the examination must ensure they start off by sending their full names, (surname first) to the code provided by the board.

The Head of Media and Information, stated that candidates must ensure that no other person had used that telephone number for that purpose.
He said: “No two persons must use a single GSM number in commencing the registration process as it will not be acceptable and might cause a little damage.
“In this case its noted that; one individual to one telephone number that will remain exclusive to that single individual for the purpose of the entire examination process.
“siblings, relatives, love ones are allowed to share a particular telephone number for this purpose.
“For instance, if candidate 1 used a telephone number to send his name to the code in the past, candidate 2, who is a sibling to A cannot use that number for that purpose again.
“But candidate 1, who probably might not have been able to pass the examination, can still use that particular line again to send his name to that code whenever the need arises,’’ he explained.
Commenting on missing mobile phone lines, Benjamin suggested that it would be safe to get a fresh telephone number for the purpose and not a ‘welcome back’ to send to the code for the candidate’s profile number.
