JAMB Boss Warns No Deadline Extension For Applicants
About 445,081 candidates have registered for the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) against the 1.8million applicants targeted by the board.
The Registrar of JAMB, Prof Ishaq Oloyede, disclosed this while monitoring the registration exercise in Ilorin, Kwara State capital , North Central, Nigeria.
He said that JAMB’s target this year is 1.8 million adding that there will not be an extension and further revealed that JAMB is planning to build a multi-million naira zonal office for Kwara which has been captured in its budget.
The registrar said, “We do not expect any extension. As of Sunday, 445,081 people have registered out of the 1.8 million candidates that we are expecting.
“We have gone halfway but you know some of our people will come at the last hour. But there is no room for an extension because we have made provisions for the registration of 100,000 candidates per day and we are doing 60,000 daily now.
“So the candidates are the ones not turning up well enough. For those who want to write a mock, the space is almost filled and when that happens, we don’t want to turn the mock into another examination. When the numbers are up to a quarter of the candidates, we will stop it. Now, we have about 144,000 who have indicated interest to write the mock,” he added.
