THE Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board says it has begun registration for the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME).
JAMB said the registration would take place in over 700 computer-based test (CBT) centres in the 36 states, including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.
The board’s Head of Media, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, made the announcement in a statement yesterday in Abuja.
He said the exercise would end in February, next year.
Benjamin urged candidates to register within the time-frame, noting that the board would not extend the registration period.
The statement reads: “We will also want to state clearly that the board does not post candidates to any examination town other than the one chosen by the candidate at the point of registration.
“Candidates are, however, advised to register on time before the available spaces in their town of choice are exhausted.
“The registration exercise started on Wednesday 6th December, 2017 and as at today, so many candidates have text their names using their phone numbers to 55019 and got their profile registered. After which they equally proceeded to the CBT centres for registration.
“The exercise from our tour of centres today clearly showed that this is one of the best registration regime of the board in recent time. It is easy, smooth and hitch-free.”
