Advertising that works - yX Media

the sales of the forms, ended on Thursday but said

that online registration was is ongoing.


He said, “This is because some people earlier bought

e-pins for the exams but were unable to register

before now, so we are monitoring them online and

would avail them the opportunity to register so to the

question of the number of people who have

registered, we cannot give the exact figure of the

registered candidates for now until this is over. ” The

online registration continues till further notice.


NAN reports that the board had commenced the sale

and online registration of 2019 to 2020 UTME forms

on January 10 and was scheduled to end on Feb. 21.

On the issue of rescheduled dates for both the mock

and main examinations, Benjamin said that the board

was yet to decide on a new date but would give

updates as soon as possible. The board considered

rescheduling the initial dates for the examination

because of the shift of dates for the general elections

by the Independent National Electoral Commission.


When he was asked about the suspension of 17

Computer Based Test (CBT) centres across the

country, Benjamin said that the suspension would

not, in any way, affect the process of the

examinations as the board had over 700 accredited

centres nationwide and they should be enough to

carry out the exams.
