JABM (Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board) administration has registered about 600,000 candidates all over Nigeria for the oncoming 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

This was disclosed yesterday in an interview in Abuja with Dr. Fabian Benjamin, the CBT-Centre head of Public Relation JAMB, saying that the JAMB management would not extend the registration deadline day.

He made it known that JAMB has laid down a procedure that will fasten the candidates registration, as well as prevent irregularities during the registration before the closing date.

Mr. Benjamin explained that due to irregularities in the recent JAMB registration process, some candidates are requesting for the extension of the UTME closing date.

He said that JAMB has registered 600, 000 candidates since the form opening on March 20 and it is thereby wrong for anybody to think that the number of centres registered is inadequate.

The head of the Public Relation stated: “We have already registered 600, 000 candidates since sales of form began March 20, how can there be inadequate centres or lack of manpower, when we have more than 400 centres.

“There is no such delay as alleged by some candidates, the issue here is that plenty people are registering for the UTME at the same time.”

“The internet is working, if it is not working how then we arrived at the total of 600, 000 that have so far been duly registered.

“Large numbers of applicants seeking to register for UTME go to the Banks allocated for the exercise that is why there seem to be some form of delays and irregularities.

“Before we used three banks and now it is 15 banks because the period is short, but we are not going to extend the registration period, before deadline every candidate will register,” he said.

Mr. Benjamin warns candidates over illegal registration, saying that 25 people have been arrested for allegedly selling 2017 UTME materials and illegal registration of candidate.

He made it known that JAMB policy wants to ensure standards operation during the examinations.
