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 a result of any health or physical issues with the fingers. The most common type of these fingerprint capturing issue 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 center 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 center 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.

    1. JAMB has actually acknowledged that they will reschedule 1,783 candidates for the exam. You might be among them already. You may need to visit the nearest JAMB to reconfirm that.
