Prof. Ishaq Oloyede The JAMB Registrar on Friday has stated that an extension was being considered for the ongoing 2017 UTME Registration to ensure that no prospective applicant is shut out of the registration process.
The registrar hinted of the extension while announcing suspension of registration for one day to enable Computer Based Test centres to concentrate on the mock exam fixed for Saturday, April 8.
Mr. Oloyede said about one million candidates had so far registered for the examination, and expressed hope that the remaining one week left for registration would be sufficient to capture all those desirous of writing the test this year.
“However, as stated earlier, no one will be left behind as the deadline may be extended if there are applicants who do not succeed at registering due to circumstances beyond their control,” he said.
The House of Representatives had on April 4 asked JAMB to extend the registration exercise by at least another month to create more space for prospective applicants.
