The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board JAMB, has said the body will not extend the registration for prospective candidates willing to write the 2019 examination.
The Governing Board Chairman, Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Dr Emmanuel Ndukwe has revealed that the examination body may not extend the registration for prospective candidates willing to write the 2019 examination.
Ndukwe made the disclosure after conducting unscheduled visits to selected JAMB accredited Computer Based Test (CBT) Centres in Lagos.
According to the JAMB Governing Board Chairman, from his observations, the registration of the prospective candidates have so far been seamless and with little or no reported cases of hiccups that may necessitate postponement of the registration period.
“I am indeed impressed with what I have been able to see regarding registration of candidates for this year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME). It is seamless and we are happy. What I have seen today has confirm that Prof. Oloyede and his technical team were very right to ban cyber cafes.
Responding to a question on a possible postponement, the Governing Board Chairman said, ” I don’t foresee an extension. We have to stick to the date we have given to the public. If we start thinking about extension, it doesn’t portray our seriousness. In some of the places we visited, they had many systems but few candidates. Let the candidates out there be mindful of the examination dates. I don’t foresee any extension of dates.”
