The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has revealed that over 1.5 million candidates registered for UTME, as registration closes on Saturday, March 26.
JAMB announced this in its Weekly Bulletin of the Office of the Registrar on Monday, in Abuja.
According to JAMB, electronic Personal Identification Number (e-PIN) for its Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and Direct Entry, were being sold from February 19, and this would end on Saturday.
“This emphasis is essential because of the persistent drop in the number of e-PINs being vended, as well as the low turnout of candidates at the various centres across the nation.
“It would be recalled that the board had stated that it would not extend the registration beyond the window allotted to it by relevant authorities to conduct the exercise.
“As discussed earlier, registration dates are not fixed arbitrarily but through a consensus of the Federal Ministry of Education and examination agencies, before the commencement of the exercise.
“Therefore, all candidates who desired to register for this year’s examination are to do so immediately, as they only have this week and no extension would be granted after close of registration, ” JAMB said.
