The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has disclosed that about 1.4 million candidates will be sitting for the 2015 UTME Computer Based Test (CBT) which is scheduled to begin March 4th.
This was made known by the JAMB Public Relations Officer, Mr Fabian Benjamin.
According to him, JAMB the number of candidates so far has been impressive.
“I want to say that we are expecting no fewer than 1.4 million candidates that will be attempting the examination in all computer-based mode of examination, commencing from this year.
“We are also happy to announce that we also have enough centres that will match the number of candidates that will be writing the examination.
“We have gone round to all the centres to assess the level of preparedness of the centres we intend to use for the examination and that they have all met the standard.
“I can assure that JAMB is fully ready for take-off of the examination as all logistics to ensure a successful outcome of the examination are fully on ground.
“We urge candidates to be fully prepared, avail themselves of the opportunity of practicing with the computer on their own.
“There is nothing strange about writing the examination through this mode and their normal telephone usage,” He stated.
He called on individuals and corporate bodies to collaborate with JAMB to set up more CBT Centres.
