1.7 million candidates registered for 2017 UTME, says JAMB Registrar
With the over 1.7 million candidates that successfully registered for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has reaffirmed its commitment to ensuring a hitch free examination.
Addressing a news conference at the headquarters of the board in Abuja, the Registrar, Professor Is’haq Oloyede said it would no longer be business as usual for persons who specialize in compromising the conduct of the examination.
Professor Oloyede further stated that the Board would continue to sustain the services of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defense Corp (NSCDC), Nigeria Police Force, State Security Services and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to monitor centres during the conduct of the examination.
The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) also said it has registered 321 visually impaired candidates for the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
The examining body said that the figure was higher than the 201 candidates registered for the examination in 2016.
