The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB, is planning to make its examination result s now valid for use by students for up to 2 years.
Dibu Ojerinde, JAMB Registrar disclosed that this would be possible if there was an aptitude test and that the JAMB board would use the Iris of the eye to verify candidates in the nearest future.
Ojerinde stated this in Abuja at the 11th seminar of the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission, ICPC.
