JAMB begins 2018 UTME registration in 700 centres


Olaleye Aluko, Abuja

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has begun registration for the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination in over 700 centres across the 36 states of the federation.

The board advised candidates to avoid being conned by fraudulent operators, noting that an extension would not be given for the UTME registration.

The JAMB’s spokesman, Fabian Benjamin, stated this on Thursday in a statement, adding that the deadline for the optional mock examination was December 30, 2017.

The JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, had said in November that the 2018 UTME would hold from March 9 to March 17 in about 620 Computer-Based Test centres nationwide.

Oloyede had said the application fee remained N5,000.

The board’s spokesman said on Thursday that candidates were advised to register within the time frame as there would not be an extension.

He said, “We will also want to state clearly that the board does not post candidates to any examination town other than the one chosen by the candidate at the point of registration.  Candidates are, however, advised to register on time before the available spaces in their town of choice are exhausted.

“The registration exercise started on Wednesday,  December 6. The system is simple and convenient, and candidates are requested to do it by themselves to avoid being defrauded by anybody.

“Candidates who desire to register for the optional mock are also urged to do so as the platform will be withdrawn by December 30. Only those who have registered and indicated their interest on or before that time will be enlisted to participate.

 “The board again reiterated its avowed commitment to conduct a hitch-free examination and advance the cause of any Nigerian child desirous of qualitative tertiary education in the country.”
