UTME: JAMB suspends registration as mock examination holds today

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has suspended registration for the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination at Computer-based Test centres across the country on Saturday.

In a statement signed by the JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, on Friday, the board said the decision is to allow a smooth conduct of the Mock examination slated for today.





He said, “The Board has suspended all activities relating to the registration exercise in any CBT centre from 8pm today being Friday, April 7, 2017, and to resume on Monday, April 10.

“This is to notify the candidates and the concerned stakeholders that there will be no sale of forms, registration and biometric capturing at the various centres in which the Mock examination are to take place.”

He noted that the Mock examination was aimed at familiarising “our candidates with the CBT systems and generally forecast the challenges that may be faced ahead in order to proactively address them.”

While saying that candidates could purchase pins for registration on Monday, Oloyede said there was enough time left for willing persons to register for the UTME.

“If there is a need to extend the registration deadline, the needful will be done,” he added.
