JAMB, Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board | House of Reps Orders JAMB To Extend 2017 UTME Registration Deadline – See more details below;

The House of Representatives has called on the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB to extend the registration deadline for the registration of 2017 UTME.

JAMB To Extend 2017 UTME

This came after the motion raised by Danburan Nuhu (Kano-APC).

According to Mr. Nuhu during the 2016 UTME exercise, about 1.6 million applicants registered for the UTME and about one million passed. He stated that the 2017 exercise might reach 2 million across the country given the growing number of applicants.

He noted that some of the approved registration centres are registering only 250 applicants at a time; most of them do not have enough space and adequate number of computers.

He urged JAMB to specify the requirements including safety measures, that approved centres need to have to participate in the conduct of UTME Computer Based Test and ensure to deploy safety equipment to each centre to forestall any incidence of stampede due to overcrowding.

The motion was unanimously adopted by the House and the committee on basic education was mandated to direct JAMB to comply with the resolutions.

The JAMB had earlier stated that it has no plans of extending the registration deadline but with this development, let’s watch how it all plays out.
