UTME, DE registration ends Saturday, says JAMB
Written by on March 22, 2022
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said it will not extend the March 26 deadline for the registration of the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE).
JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, who announced this during the monitoring of the registration at Global Distance Learning Computer-Based Centre yesterday in Abuja, said the deadline would not be extended because the board was working on a “tight schedule”.
Oloyede expressed displeasure at the turnout of candidates at the centre, saying only one candidate turned up for registration, instead of the usual 200 or more candidates per day.
Oloyede said the board was taking the campaign to the public to call attention to the fact that students were not registering.
Also, JAMB said it had suspended two financial institutions for vending the e-PINs above N4,700 in the ongoing registration for the UTME and DE. But the board did not name the financial institutions involved in the infraction.
JAMB stated these in its weekly bulletin released by its Head of Media, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, yesterday in Abuja.
The board said it would also report their illicit act to the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission, to ensure that extorted candidates get refunded.
