JAMB Extends 2017 UTME Registration Deadline

There has been lots of worries and questions about how this year JAMB has its operation, lots of people are getting confused because of the 2017 JAMB registration hasn't been steady.

The registrar of JAMB Professor Ishaq Oloyede made an address at a news conference in Abuja. In his address, he spoke of moke examination that was earlier scheduled to hold on Saturday and why the exam has to be extended.

In his speech, he said that the Joint Administration and Matriculation Board wishes to apologize to the candidates and stakeholders on the fact that we could not go on as planned with the mock examination.

“We are hereby announcing the extension of the registration exercise of the 2017 UTME. Instead of the earlier announced April 19, the deadline for the sale of forms and registrations will now extend to Friday, May 5, 2017.

“Consequently, the 2017 UTME, the examination proper, has also been postponed to start from Saturday 13th to 20th of May 2017. Meanwhile, the mock examinations earlier slated for April 8, 2017, has been put on hold and the new date will be announced soon.”

It also follows a call by the house of REP for a month extension to the end date given to candidates which were caused by difficulties being faced by some prospective candidates of the UTME in the process of registration, who had complained of inadequate bank staff to issue registration pins.

Professor Oloyede on the other hand stated some challenges being faced by applicants across registration centers because of lack of cooperation which led to a new development by the board to start the sale of application method, that led to the elimination of scratch cards.

Also, a cost saving procedure has been adopted,  the ‘PIN Vending System’, which is said to be a secure system that has redressed the sharp practices associated with the use of scratch cards.

With this development, prospective candidates that are seeking to write the UTME can now heave a sigh of relief.
