The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, is hoping that the 2019 registration of candidates for its Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, will be a huge success.
While seaking with News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, in Lagos, JAMB spokesman, Fabian Benjamin said: “Registration of candidates for this year’s examination has commenced in earnest in all accredited Computer Based Test (CBT) centres nationwide.
“Today alone, I will say that the registration of candidates in Abuja, for instance, witnessed a massive turn out.
“It is as if the registration wanted to end today and I think it is a good beginning.
“We are anticipating a smooth exercise from start to finish as we have put all the necessary things in place to achieve that.
“However, that is not to say that there will not be some small technical issues in some other centres in different parts of the country being the first day of the registration.
“We took all that into consideration and that is why we have our technical experts fully on ground in each of these centres to immediately tackle them.
“We are confident that as we progress, the process will get better and better.”
