The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said it had registered 1,121,123 candidates for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) as of March 12.

The board announced this in its Weekly Bulletin released by its Head of Media and Protocol, Dr. Fabian Benjamin on 14th of March 2022 in Abuja, the Nation’s capital.

The bulletin said registration for the UTME and Direct Entry (DE), which started on February 19, will close on March 26 without an extension.

JAMB also said it had paid N600 million cumulative amount derived from the regulated N700 service charges for the registration to accredited Computer-Based Tests (CBT) centres.

“JAMB had so far remitted over N600 million service charges to respective centres, in line with the cashless policy of the board, which represents the total number of candidates, multiplied by N700. This payment, however, excludes JAMB-owned CBT centres.

“The sum of N104,899,300 was paid in the first week of registration; N251,730,500 in the second week of registration and N332,150,700 was paid for last week’s registration,” JAMB said.

Also, in a bid to facilitate the smooth processing of profile codes and address the incessant reports of candidates being allocated programmes other than their preferred choices, JAMB has urged parents (particularly the elite), guardians and school proprietors to allow candidates to register for the board’s UTME/DE on their own.

It said the cashless policy was introduced to curb the excesses of some fraudulent CBT centres who would want to take advantage of hapless candidates.
