The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has registered over 1.8 million candidates for the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
This was disclosed by the Head, Media and Information of the board, Dr Fabian Benjamin, in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Lagos. The registration of candidates for the all Computer Based Test (CBT) commenced on Feb. 10 and terminated on Feb. 21.
According to him, registration was a huge success, adding that there were no hitches at all across the various accredited registration centres nationwide. The JAMB spokesman also dismissed rumours in some quarters that candidates could start printing their examination notification slip from March 2.
He said, “This is misleading and absolutely not correct. Let me sound it clearly that the board has not come up with any date for both the examination and the printing of examination notification slip for candidates.
“The board will announce the date for the 2019 UTME soon. As it is now, no date has been fixed yet for both the examination and the printing of examination notification slip.
He urged candidates and other stakeholders to remain calm, reassuring them that the board would make an announcement and proper sensitisation about the date for the examination and printing of examination.
