JAMB closes registration for 2018 UTME

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has closed
registration for the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination
(UTME).

This was confirmed in a statement signed by the board's spokesman,
Fabian Benjamin, on Tuesday.

He said candidates who paid and obtained pins but have not been able
to register, have 24 hours to complete their registration.

"The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) wishes to inform
the general public that the sale of 2018 UTME application is closed.

"However, the public is urged to note that all candidates who paid and
obtained pins and could not unsuccessfully register at the close of
sale are allowed to quickly within 24 hours complete their
registration as no complaints would be entertained afterwards.

"For purposes of emphasis, this applies to only candidates who had
initiated registration processes and have paid and procured the
registration epins but could not register at the close of sales.

"Take note that candidates are not to generate any profile code for
the purpose of 2018 UTME registration as doing so would have no effect
and a waste of time and resources," the statement read.

Benjamin also said over 1.6million candidates applied within the three
months that registration was open.

"The board commenced the sale of the 2018 UTME registration on the 6th
of December 2017 and was to close on the 6th of February, 2018 but
extended to 11th of February, 2018.

"At the close of pin vending a total of 1,662,818 candidates paid and
obtained the epins while 1,650,547 had successfully registered for the
2018 UTME. The difference are the numbers outstanding who have not
registered but are holding the epins and are now allowed to register
within 24 hours," he added.
