UTME starts Today, as 1.7m Candidates sit for Examination

The Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) is going to hold between Friday, 6th to Monday, 16th May, according to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board.

The Board said about 1.7 million candidates are taking this year’s examination.

According to Fabian Benjamin, the Head of Media at JAMB, examination will be conducted for the 1,761,338 candidates that registered across 755 registered computer based centres.

He added that measures have been put in place to ensure smooth conduct of the examinations.

The Board will still make use of biometrics which is also a register of attendance in line with the Board’s policy.

He further said that the ban on prohibited items was still in force, hence called on candidates to be careful not to run foul of the law as necessary sanctions would be meted out to violators of JAMB’s code of conduct.
