About 1.9m candidates will take the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination today, Saturday 14th, across more than 600 CBT centres nationwide.
The examination body stated that all its workers taking part in today’s examinations must wear hand gloves and use hand sanitizers, which will be available for candidates also.
JAMB had on Friday deployed operatives of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps and the Department of State Services to CBT centres and would also monitor activities within each hall through the Closed-Circuit Television.
In their weekly bulletin, JAMB said 63 centres would not be participating in the 2020 UTME due to various infractions, including extortion of candidates, loss of vital access instruments to technical deficiencies. A statement from the bulletin added that 16 of them were suspended after the February 18 mock examinations.
The UTME will last till Saturday, April 4, with about 1.9 million registered candidates, being the highest so far in the 41-year history of the board.
