Therefore, candidates are to note that any personal data they divulge to any third-party be it a vendor or agent could expose them to the risk of losing their UTME Registration thereby jeopardizing their future aspirations.

In view of the above, the Board wishes to reiterate that pin vending should be done directly to individual candidates and should be done online through the pin vending platform and not offline.

There should be no bulk purchase of pins by candidates or secondary schools as is being done by some elite schools. All online vending should be done directly to each candidate on the presentation of his or her profile code.

After vending the pin, the relevant pin should be sent to each candidate through his or her phone, hence there is no need to write the pin by hand by any vendor or agent.

Any vendor/agent who collects a prepared list with candidates' name, profile code and other vital details for the purpose of vending pins will be sanctioned.

Any vendor collecting such prepared lists is hereby advised to desist with immediate effect as this action has severe consequences on the candidates whose data are being exposed indiscriminately.
