It’s not uncommon to have a few prospective JAMB candidates with problems with their fingers while at the CBT registration points.

This can be as a result of any health or physical issues with the fingers. The most common type of these fingerprint capturing issues is swollen hands.

What is expected of you if you have any of these problems? Does JAMB make any provisions to help you take part in the UTME despite your challenge?

Below is the answer to your questions.

JAMB Asks Candidates to Report to the Nearest JAMB Office

Generally, candidates are instructed to visit the nearest CBT centre in order to register for UTME/DE. If however, you have finger capturing issues, you have to use the next JAMB office.

You're to report there for proper documentation. JAMB has made provisions for the people of your kind.


With experience, after the documentation, you may be registered and scheduled for UTME at JAMB headquarters Abuja instead of any available centre in the country.

In other words, you may not have control over your town of exams. You may be required to sit for your exams at the JAMB Abuja office.

JAMB Usually Fix Date With Candidates With Finger Capturing Issues

From the experience, it's the custom of the matriculation board to fix a certain date for those candidates with finger-related capturing issues to converge at its zonal offices and do their registration.

This date will be given to you by the office brach you had gone earlier for documentation. You can also be on the lookout for such an announcement on the board's website or the twitter page.

In the year 2020, for example, below is the announcement.

All candidates who could not be captured due to challenges on their fingers are scheduled for the completion of their registration tomorrow Thursday, 13th of February, 2020  at the Board’s Zonal Offices under the supervision of the Zonal  Directors.

Below is the list of JAMB zonal offices at which affected candidates will be attended to.

  1. National Headquarters Annex, Lagos
  2. Abuja
  3. Bauchi
  4. Benin
  5. Enugu
  6. Ibadan
  7. National headquarters Annex, Kaduna
  8. Kano
