The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board has registered 1.8 million candidates for the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, its spokesperson, Dr. Fabian Benjamin has announced.
“We have concluded the registration and we recorded over 1.8 million candidates for the UTME this year. Registration closed on Feb.21, when we stopped the pin vending for the exercise. However, some candidates who had acquired the pin but were unable to register before February 21 due to one reason or the other were allowed to do so till 12 midnight, Feb. 25 when the registration closed”, Benjamin said.
Meanwhile, the JAMB spokesman has dismissed rumours in some quarters that candidates could start printing their examination notification slip from March 2.
“This is misleading and absolutely untrue, let me sound it clearly that the board has not come up with any date for both the examination notification slip for candidates.
“The board will announce the date for the 2019 UTME soon. As it is now, no date has been fixed yet for both the examination and the printing of examination notification slip,” he said in Lagos.
