2017 UTME: 1.237 Million
Candidates Registered
The registrar of the Joint Admission and
Matriculation Board in a statement has disclosed
that 1.237 million candidates have submitted
their applications already for the 2017 UTME.
He further revealed that over 678 centres across
the country against the last year’s figure of 650
CBT centres, would be put to use with estimated
1.5 million candidates for the examination.
He said though there was collaboration with
Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)-producing
company to air lift candidates in riverine areas to
their CBT centres.
He mentioned that the reason for ‘capturing’
candidates’ ten fingers in biometric registration
is to forestall incidence of multiple registrations
as noticed with previous years registration.
He said the board also insisted on profile
creation and other processes to strengthen the
education data and ensure that candidates do
not go through ‘hell’ years after graduating from
tertiary institutions.
