The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) yesterday said the 2018 Unified Tertiary Examination (UTME) registration exercise earlier suspended, has resumed.
The board’s spokesman Dr Fabian Benjamin said the “Board has commenced the 2018 registration exercise in over 700 centres across the 36 states of the federation including FCT. The exercise would end by February, 2018.
“Candidates are advised to register within this time frame as the board will not extend the registration period.”
He said candidates would not write exams in any examination town other than the ones they chose at the point of registration.
He however said candidates must register on time before the available spaces in their preferred towns got exhausted.
He said “the registration exercise started on Wednesday 6th December, 2017 and as at today so many candidates have text their names using their phone numbers to 55019 and got their profile registered. After which they equally proceeded to the CBT centres for registration.”
He said candidates could purchase the e -pins using their ATM or through Interswitch, Remita and other online platforms at the comfort of their homes.
He said examination offices were available for any challenge encountered by candidates while trying to obtain the e -pin.
Also, candidates interested in the optional mock exam were asked to register as the platform would be withdrawn by the 30th of December, and only those who registered and indicated their interest on or before that time will be enlisted to participate.
