JAMB Closes Sales Of UTME Registration Forms
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has
closed the sale of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation
Dr Fabian Benjamin the JAMB board’s media head
told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja that
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.
