We have registered 1.8 million candidates for 2019 UTME – JAMB

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has registered over 1.8 million candidates for the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

The Head, Media and Information of the board, Dr Fabian Benjamin, made this known in Lagos.

Registration of candidates for the all Computer Based Test (CBT) commenced on Feb. 10 and terminated on Feb. 21. Benjamin said, the registration was a huge success, adding that there were no hitches at all across the various accredited registration centres nationwide.

In his words, “We have concluded the registration and we recorded over 1.8 million candidates for the UTME this year”. The Registration closed on Feb. 21, when we stopped the pin vending for the exercise. However, some candidates who had acquired the pin but were unable to register before Feb. 21, due to one reason or the other, were allowed to do so till 12 midnight, Feb. 25, the last day of registration.
