The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Monday said that it would not extend the period of registration of candidates for its 2017 Computer Based Test (CBT) UTME.
The board’s Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede disclosed this to newsmen on the sideline of a stakeholders’ meeting attended by owners of CBT centres nationwide, organised by JAMB at the University of Lagos.
He said that the essence of reducing the period of registration from three months to one month was to eliminate all ills associated with prolonged registration of candidates.
“There will also be mock examination for prospective candidates, and this examination will be purely optional.
“Those who register for the mock examination will sit for it on April 8, but the UTME proper will commence on May 6 to May 20.
