The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has sent out a warning to prospective candidates not to patronize unapproved centres when registering for the 2016 all-Computer Based Test (CBT) of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
“JAMB, once again, urges candidates that their registration should be done at approved centres, to avoid certain challenges, such as no results and incomplete results,” a statement from the board said.
“The essence of registration at the approved centres for the candidates is to ensure complete results without any hitches.
“Candidates are also to note that the registration will be ending in January 2016.”
“We are working round the clock to give the
country an examination that is malpractice and stress-free as well as one that guarantees the spirit of equality and fairness.
“Be informed that this year’s registration has been done in a way that candidates will have additional provision for more preferred choices, in case they do not get admission in their most preferred choice.
“Candidates are allowed to choose from a list of institutions with more spaces.
“This method is to give candidates a second chance of being admitted, should they miss their most preferred choice.
“The board is only trying to ensure that all
available spaces are being utilised,’’ the statement
