‘2017 UTME Registration is Still on’ – JAMB
In an emerging report, It was stated that JAMB registration is ongoing.
Ishaq Oloyede, the Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has confirmed that interested applicants can still register for the ongoing Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
Oloyede made this statement during his visit to a CBT centre in Lagos.
He said he got a mandate from the Senate few weeks ago to increase the UTME registration period by one month, which would lapse on May 28 when the board will finally close its registration portal.
“As I speak, we have registered additional 1,100 candidates,” he said.
Recall that Oloyede had said that out of the 1,648,429 candidates writing the ongoing UTME, the results of 1,048,914 have been released.
The Registrar also said the candidates have not done badly going by the results released so far, and said that fingerprints may no longer be required in subsequent UTME registrations.
