With the registration for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Exam (UTME) set to end today, 17th February, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has warned that there will be no extension.
This was disclosed on Sunday by Dr. Fabian Benjamin, JAMB head of media and information.
According to him, there will be no extension in the registration period for both UTME and Direct Entry (DE) candidates.
“There will be no extension for the registration of candidates for both the UTME and the Direct Entry (DE) as being speculated in some quarters.”
“Registration for this year’s examination ends by 12 midnight of Feb. 17, and that will be it for this year, he said.
The JAMB spokesperson also added that the board has registered about 2million candidates so far which represents the highest figure in the history of the examination.
“The board is pleased with the way the exercise has gone so far and with this, we have registered over 1.9 million candidates.
“This figure is the highest that the board has ever recorded in the history of its examination.
“We are happy that we keep improving every day in a bid to ensure effective management of our operations,” he told NAN.
Dr. Benjamin added that the planned mock exam will be used to test run facilities at the various CBT centers scheduled for the actual exams.
“One of the purposes of the mock examination is to test-run the facilities in these centres. Anyone of them that falls short of standard will automatically be delisted,” he added.
