The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board on Friday said that 357 prison inmates will be among 1.7 million candidates that would sit for Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) on Saturday.
The Registrar of the board, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, disclosed the development at a news conference on Friday in Abuja.
According to him, the UTME examination scheduled for Friday May 13 has not been postponed as being speculated.
He therefore advised candidates to ignore rumours that the examination has been postponed, saying candidates writing the examination tomorrow should not fail to attend.
Oloyede, who assured that the examinations would still hold as scheduled except for those that have Seven Days Adventist service, enjoined the candidates to go to their respective centres for the examination.
He also advised UTME candidates to always check their e-mails for further updates, noting that some candidates are fond of giving out their passwords and e-mail addresses to strangers in spite of several warnings from the board.
“Candidates should be aware of fraudsters who hide under cyber cafe operators to defraud innocent children. We have caught some of them while mischievously collecting money from candidates with the help of some security officers,” he said.
