The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has disclosed that about 700,000 candidates have so far been registered for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) nationwide in two weeks.
This was made known by the Board’s Head, Media, and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, in an interview with newsmen.
According to him, the exercise has been hitch-free, with the impressive turnout from the first day at the various accredited Computer Based Test (CBT) centres nationwide.
He stated that there are 21 days left to go for in this year’s registration exercise and called on all prospective candidates who wish to register for 2020, the UTME and Direct Entry, to seize the opportunity and register, as there will be no extension.
Benjamin also noted that the Board had blacklisted 41 centres out of the 692 centres used, over issues such as registration cyber fraud, extortion and technical deficiency.
