The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board has said that it will commence sale of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination form to candidates on January 10, 2019.
This was made known during a meeting between JAMB and Computer Based Test centres at the University of Lagos, on Thursday, where the Registrar of JAMB, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, also said the registration for the UTME would no longer be done at cybercafés but at accredited CBT centres.
Oloyede stated that limiting of registration of candidates to only approved CBT centres was to end extortion of candidates, mixing up of pupils’ data, malpractice, as well as for monitoring purposes.
He said, “Cybercafés overcharge pupils and mix up data which makes pupils suffer. They also do services they don’t have the capacity to do. All these, coupled with the fact that there is no way of tracking them because they were not registered, we have limited registration to CBT centres that can be monitored.
