He recalled that following the 2022 UTME, the Board reviewed the entire process, and candidates who had biometric challenges were given the opportunity to sit for a mop-up examination.

The Board also announced that since the conduct of a mop-up examination was a stopgap measure, it would not be allowed to be a permanent feature of its calendar.

It notes that, any candidate presenting any challenge(s) would have to indicate such peculiarities at the point of registration for them to be given special consideration .

Benjamin stated that the decision to consider the candidates was to ensure that no single innocent candidate is punished unjustly.
