Prospective candidates for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculations Examination (UTME) are to participate in the exercise on March 14 as the Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) begins preparation.

The date was announced by JAMB on Monday, December 23, saying the examination will hold between March 14 and April 4.

Prof Is-haq Oloyede, registrar of JAMB, made the announcement in Abuja when he met with commissioners for education from the 36 states.

According to Oloyede, registration for the UTME will start on January 13, and end on February 17.

JAMB reiterated its zero tolerance for all forms of examination malpractice and is leaving no stone unturned to curb the menace.

In its latest move to eradicate malpractice, the board's registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, gave an indication that drones may be deployed to monitor the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculations Examination (UTME).

Oloyede gave the hint on Thursday, December 19, during a meeting of the stakeholders held at the Congo Conference Hotel, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria in Kaduna state.

Meanwhile, JAMB has said it has wielded the big stick on 133 centres where it was discovered that candidates for the UTME engaged in malpractices.

Professor Oloyede said this when he met with operators of Computer-Based Test (CBT) centres and others in Zaria, Kaduna state on Thursday, December 19.

Oloyede said it was also discovered that operators of the affected centres do tamper with the Close Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras mounted to monitor activities during examinations.

The JAMB registrar said the examination body was making efforts to combat this challenge as it was collaborating with the Computer Professional Council of Nigeria (CPN) ahead of future examinations.
