Over 1.2 million candidates registered for 2019 UTME in 26 days – The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has enrolled 1,205,187 students for the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, which is planned to occur between Saturday, March 16 & Saturday, March 23, with Lagos & Kaduna states recording the most elevated enlistments of 161,654 & 76,049 students, individually.
The board additionally said that the telephone numbers, which the students utilized for their profile code enrollment, electronic pin distributing & enlistment for the past UTME, must be utilized for the 2019 UTME by similar students, not different people.
JAMB, in a discharge circulated on Monday from the office of the Registrar, Prof Ishaq Oloyede, additionally said only authorize Computer-Based Test Centers would do legitimate UTME enlistment & fill in as examination centres.
The board stated, “Previously used numbers for JAMB registrations can only be re-used by the same candidate, not another candidate. A previously used number is a GSM telephone number used for profile code creation, electronic pin vending and registration in previous registration exercises. This can be used for the 2019 registration only by the same candidate.”
“The candidate who is using his or her previous number for the second or third time will use the same profile code to purchase the new electronic pin. If the profile code has been forgotten, the candidate can retrieve it through a text message. In other words, the old profile code can be used by the same candidate to procure the new electronic pin.”
