The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has asked candidates for the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) to ignore the dates being circulated and the printing of examination slips.
The Head, Media and Information of the board, Fabian Benjamin, said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Lagos, as he confirmed that registrations have been concluded. He further stated that, the body registered over 1.8 million candidates for the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
The registration of candidates for the all Computer Based Test (CBT) ended on February 21.
According to Mr Benjamin, the registration was a huge success and that there were no hitches at all across the various accredited registration centres nationwide.
He said, “Let me sound it clearly that the board has not come up with any date for both the examination and the printing of examination notification slip for candidates.”
“The board will announce the date for the 2019 UTME soon. “As it is now, no date has been fixed yet for both the examination and the printing of examination notification slip.”
“The examination slips are usually printed, two weeks to the main examination, but that is only after when the examination date has been fixed.”
“There is no way anybody can print examination notification slip when the examination date, itself, has not been fixed.”
This is coming after widespread rumours that candidate can start printing their examination notification slip.
Stay alert for the new dates!
