JAMB records decrease in registered candidates for 2018 UTME

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board on Wednesday said it recorded a decrease in the number of registered candidates for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations in 2018.

The Registrar of the Board, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, disclosed this to newsmen on Wednesday in Abuja.

According to him, a total number of 1,662,762 candidates registered for the 2018 UTME, within a period of two months, as against a total of 1,718,425 candidates who registered within one month in 2017.

He explained that the decrease of 3.2 per cent was largely as a result of measures put in place by the board to forestall multiple registrations and other unwholesome practices by candidates.

Oloyede noted that a total of 367 visually impaired candidates registered for the 2018 examination, as against the 201 candidates of 2017.

“The board will continue to provide all necessary support and logistics to the physically challenged candidates in order to encourage them to attain their pursuit for knowledge.

“The board recorded a pleasantly high number of candidates for the 2018 UTME examinations from foreign countries.

“The board is yet to get the actual statistics from the various embassies, those who applied for the examinations would commence after the local centres have concluded,”‎ he said.
