JAMB commences sales of UTME forms Thursday

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, said it would commence sales of 2015 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination application forms from September 15, 2014 to January 15, 2015.
The board stated that following its resolution to implement full-blown ​Computer-Based Test in the 2015 UTME, a ​number of reforms aimed at repositioning the examination sector had been put in place to ensure a hitch-free exercise.
A statement by the JAMB Registrar, Prof. Dibu Ojerinde, on Tuesday in Abuja, explained that the board had fine-tuned arrangements with CBT centres to register prospective UTME candidates.
This, it noted, became necessary to make the registration exercise error ​and ​stress-free for candidates.
The board said that it had discovered that most of the cases of impersonation and other malpractice were initiated from the registration process by cyber-cafes, hence the need to regulate the registration process to ensure the system is malpractice-free.
It said, “By this arrangement, candidates are to obtain their application document from the designated banks and proceed to any of our CBT centres and register for the examination at a regulated fee.
“There are about 300 centres all over the country and the centre members of staff have been trained for this purpose.”
