1.237 Million Candidates Have Submitted Their Applications Already For The 2017 UTME With 678 Centres.

The registrar of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board in a statement has made it known that 1.237 million applicants  have submitted their applications already for the 2017 UTME.
He further said that over 678 centres across the country against the last year’s figure of 650 CBT centres, would be put to use with estimated 1.5 million candidates for the examination.
He said though there was collaboration with Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)-producing company to air lift candidates in riverine areas to their CBT centres.
He mentioned that the reason for ‘capturing’ candidates’ ten fingers in biometric registration is to forestall incidence of multiple registrations as noticed with previous years registration.
He said the board also insisted on profile creation and other processes to strengthen the education data and ensure that candidates do not go through ‘hell’ years after graduating from tertiary institutions.
