The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has directed prospective candidates for the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) to ensure they do register before February 21st as the board is not considering extending the deadline for the resgistration.
The board also stated that it is so far satisfied with its decision of banning cyber cafes and using only accredited CBT centres for the registration process.
This was disclosed by the Chairman of Governing Board of JAMB, Emmanuel Aguzie, on Friday shortly after touring some CBT centres in Lagos.
He described the registration so far as hitch-free, seamless and fraud-free as confirmed by both the CBT operators and candidates at the centres visited. According to him, he does not foresee the registration deadline extended.
The 2019 JAMB UTME registration is expected to close on February 21 while the exam will commence March 16, 2019.
