The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB)
has issued strict Advisories an the application of
henna, otherwise called “Laali”/”Lale” and appropriate
dress code ahead of the 2023 Unified Tertiary
Matriculation Examination (UTME).According to a
statement made available to JAMB Bulletin,
candidates are warned against applying henna to
avoid experiencing biometric verification
challenges.The statement revealed that, henna when
applied on the fingers obstructs the smooth biometric
verification of the candidates fingers. Also in an
attempt by candidates to dean their fancy henna
drawings, they used chemicals that damaged the
whorls on their fingers, hence making biometric
verification and authentication difficult. The Board
reiterated its position of “No Biometrics, No
Examination” rule and urged candidates to desist
from any act that could jeopardise their hances of
taking.On indecent dressing, the Board warned
candidates against indecent dressing, which in some
cases, has constituted a major distraction to
candidates, embarrassing even the candidates
wearing such dresses as others pass offensive glances
at them thereby destabilizing their comportment for
the examination. In some cases it has been used to
aid and abet examination malpractices The Board
views such inproper dessing as a serious breach of
UTME ethics adding that provocative and seductive
dressing as well as willful and deliberate exposure of
one’s body to the public would no longer be condoned
as they are capable of causing distraction to
candidates and examination officials alike.The
statement listed indecent dressing to include, but not
limited to, sleeveless tops, body hugs, knickers,
transparent clothes, canopy headties, bogus fashion
jewelries, spaghetti tops, and Off-shoulders, among
others.The Board reiterated that pencils are allowed
into the examination hall for UTME.
