The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has suspended 243 registration centres for the ongoing JAMB registration exercise for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME)
Dr. Fabian Benjamin, the JAMB board’s Head, Media and Information, who disclosed this to SamsKoncept on Wednesday, in Lagos, said the suspension of the exercise in the affected centres is to allow the board conduct a third party recruitment examination, scheduled for 16th of January, 2020.
In his statement,
“The reason for the suspension of the exercise in the 243 centres nationwide by the board is that the centres are likely going to be used for third-party recruitment examination and we do not want to create any overcrowding.
However, the registration exercise will resume again in those centres nationwide, on 17th of January, 2020.
The board regrets any inconvenience the suspension might have caused the candidates,” he said.
Benjamin added that the list of the affected centres was on the board’s website www.jamb.gov.ng.
The registration of candidates for this year’s Computer- Based Test (CBT) commenced nationwide on 13th of January, 2020.
