JAMB Registration Deadline Will Not Be Extended – 2017/2018

The deadline for 2017/2018 JAMB registration will not be extended according to the exam board. The UTME CBT registration closing date remains the same as set by JAMB. All aspiring candidates who want to purchase and complete the 2017 JAMB form for admission can now do so before the closing date.

JAMB has so far registered 600,000 candidates for the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) nationwide.

You would recall that some aspiring JAMB candidates staged a protest to show their grievances about the registration date. The candidates complained bitterly about the hitches experienced during registration and how it has slowed down their registration. To this end, they are asking for an extension of the JAMB registration closing date.

JAMB UTME Registration Deadline Will Not Be Extended – 2017/2018

Dr Fabian Benjamin, Head of Public Relations JAMB, made this known on Monday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Bwari, FCT.

According to him, “we have already registered 600, 000 candidates since sales of form began March 20, how can there be inadequate centres or lack of manpower, when we have more than 400 centres.

“There is no such delay as alleged by some candidates, the issue here is that plenty people are registering for the UTME at the same time.

“The internet is working, if it is not working how then we arrived at the total of 600, 000 that have so far been duly registered.

“Large numbers of applicants seeking to register for UTME go to the Banks allocated for the exercise that is why there seem to be some form of delays and irregularities.

“Before we used three banks and now it is 15 banks because the period is short, but we are not going to extend the registration period, before deadline every candidate will register,” he said.


We wish you the best with your application and admission!!!
