Finally JAMB 2017/2018 UTME Registration Commencement Date Is Out


The Registrar of the Joint Admission And
Matriculation Board, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede has
disclosed that the 2017 UTME registration will
commence within the next two weeks.
He further mentioned that the examination itself
will be coming up later in May so it won’t clash
with any SSCE examinations, and help the board
check any form of malpractice, especially
upgrading of results.
“Normally, we conduct our examinations around
March and the results will be ready within two to
three days. But when do we need the results? It
is always between July and August. This gives
room for all forms of suspicion.
“If you go on the net, you will see people
claiming that they could help candidates to
upgrade their results because the results are
lying fallow between March and July”
“Now we want to shorten the period in such a
way that the time between the examination and
when the results will be used will be very short.
There will be no opportunity for anybody to even
dream of upgrading results.” He stated
He equally stated that the 1.7m candidates
figure was last year’s figure and bit the board do
not expect less this year. “We expect about 1.5
million candidates for UTME and about 200,000
and 300,000 candidates for Direct Entry. That
was how we arrived at the figure and that is the
figure we are also expecting.”
He further emphasized that the board is not
promising a hitch free examination but promised
that issues arising will be solved.
