Written by News Room on March 22, 2022
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, restated its resolve not to extend the March 26, 2022 deadline for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, and Direct Entry, DE, registration.
JAMB Registrar, Prof Ishaq Oloyede said the board will not extend the exercise because it is working on a tight schedule.
Oloyede, who spoke at the Global Distance Learning Institute, Abuja, while monitoring the exam registration exercise, said so far, between 1.5 million to 1.6 million candidates have been registered, but the closing days of the exercise were experiencing low turnout of candidates across the country.
On the complaints by CBT centres over the high cost of diesel and energy problems in the country, Oloyede said the board is trying to open a discussion with the NNPC and after due consultations, it would do something about it.
