JAMB had said that 700,000 candidates were registered for the 2020 UTME Examination nationwide in two weeks.
The Board’s Head, Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, made this known in an interview.
According to him, the exercise was hitch-free, with impressive turnout from the first day at the various accredited Computer Based Test (CBT) centres nationwide.
“I will like to say we have actually found this exercise very interesting as we have already registered a total of 700, 000 prospective candidates for this year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination in just 14 days.
“We have 21 days left to go for this registration exercise and we wish to call on all candidates, the UTME and Direct Entry, to seize the opportunity and register, as there will be no extension.
Benjamin had noted that the Board had blacklisted 41 centres out of the 692 centres used, over issues such as registration cyber fraud, extortion and technical deficiency.
He warned parents not to also give in to any form of extortion.
