UTME 2017: 20,000 STUDENTS REGISTER IN TWO DAYS

By Dayo Adesulu(Vanguard)

As the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB commenced the 2017 Unified Tertiary and Matriculation Examination, UTME registration on Monday, its spokesperson Dr. Fabian Benjamin yesterday said the Board has within two days registered 20,000 candidates.

JAMB is  expecting about two million candidates to register for this years  UTME across the country within the allowed period of March 20 to April 19.

Meanwhile, many accredited centres in Lagos  were yet to commence registration of candidates as at yesterday due to lack of JAMB code. Vanguard investigation revealed that most candidates who visited the centres in Lagos said their hope of registration were dashed as accredited CBT owners told them  they were yet to access the code of operation from JAMB. In his reaction, the spokesperson of JAMB, Dr Benjamin said the information  that candidates were finding it difficult to register in the accredited centres in Lagos was strange. ‘’I am not aware that UTME centres in Lagos are finding it difficult to register,’’ he said. Meanwhile, out of the 600 accredited CBT centres in the country, Lagos has 39.
