The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says it has registered over 1.8 million candidates for the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
Naija News learnt that the Head, Media and Information of the board, Fabian Benjamin, said this 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) ended on February 21, Naija News reports.
Mr Benjamin said the registration was a huge success, adding that there were no hitches at all across the various accredited registration centres nationwide.
“We have concluded the registration and we recorded over 1.8 million candidates for the UTME this year.
The commission has also asked candidates to ignore the dates being circulated about 2019 UTME and printing of examination slips.
He said, ‘’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.
“The examination slips are usually printed, two weeks to the main examination, but that is only after when the examination date has been fixed.
“There is no way anybody can print examination notification slip when the examination date, itself, has not been fixed.”
