JAMB Extends Registration By Five Days


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board ( JAMB ) has extended registration for the unified tertiary matriculation examination till Sunday 11, by 12 midnight.

The board said registration for Direct Entry candidates continues.

JAMB Head of Information, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, made the announcement in a statement after a meeting with directors of the agency on Tuesday, in Abuja.

The board advised candidates to use the period to complete their registration as request for further extension would not be entertained.

The statement reads: The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) announces the extension of registration for 2018 UTME till midnight of Sunday, 11th February, 2018.

“JAMB as a responsive organization has taken the decision albeit with great hesitation to accommodate candidates who failed to register between the two months window period that ended at midnight of Tuesday, 6th February, 2018.

“The failure of these candidates to register is unfortunate and the board hastens to add that this culture of impunity will not be tolerated and indeed penalty may be imposed for late registration in future.

“UTME candidates are therefore strongly advised to take advantage of the extension to register as request for further extension would not be entertained.”

Earlier, JAMB registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede had told reporters that a total of 1,451,691 million candidates had registered for the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, while 39,663 candidates were for the Direct Entry.

He stated this when he received the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Ibrahim Magu.

The examination is expected to hold on March 7 across 649 computer based test centres.
