JAMB Issues Warning UTME Candidates. With less than 40-hour to the year 2016. The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has once again cautioned candidates about registering with unapproved centres for the 2016 all Computer Based Test (CBT) of the UTME.
JAMB Issues Warning UTME Candidates was contained in a statement signed by the boardâ€™s Head, Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin. It said that the candidates were being reminded that JAMBâ€™s registration for the 2016 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) should be done only at the boardâ€™s approved centres, adding that registration will be ending in January 2016.
The statement read, â€œThe board hereby wants to state unequivocally that it will not be liable in the event of any irregularity, challenges or inaccessible data arising from the wrong registration.
â€œJAMB, once again, urges candidates that their registration should be done at its approved centres, to avoid certain challenges such as no results and incomplete results.
â€œThe essence of registration at the approved centres for the candidates is to ensure complete results without any hitches.
â€œCandidates are also to note that the registration will be ending in January 2016,â€ it said.
â€œWe are working round the clock to give the country an examination that is malpractice and stress-free; and guarantees the spirit of equality and fairness to all and sundry.
â€œBe informed that this yearâ€™s registration has been done in a way that candidates will have additional provision for more preferred choices, in case they do not get admission in their most preferred choice.
â€œCandidates are allowed to choose from a list of institutions with more spaces.
â€œThis method is to give candidates a second chance of being admitted, should they miss their most preferred choice.
â€œThe board is only trying to ensure that all available spaces are being utilised.â€ (NAN)
