JAMB tells 2017 candidates to check e-mails, CBT centres for UTME notifications

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has advised the 2017 JAMB UTME candidates, to check their e-mails for notification of their examination centres. This is coming 72hrs before the commencement of the examination.

This was made known by the JAMB’s Head, Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, on Thursday in Lagos.

He said the advice became imperative because of agitations by some 2017 UTNE candidates over non-communication on their examination centres by the board to them, less than 72 hours to the commencement of the all Computer Based Test.

Benjamin said that the examination board, JAMB, commenced issuance of notification of examination centres through candidates’ e-mail addresses nationwide since Monday.

“Candidates are urged to note that the board had sent their notification to their e-mail addresses for them to go ahead and re-print.

“They can also visit any accredited CBT centre and re-print or log in with their e-mail addresses or registration numbers on our website, http://www.jamb.org.ng, www.jamb.org.ng, to re-print their notification which has their examination schedules.

“Candidates are, however, are not to pay more than N100 in these accredited CBT centres for this re-printing,’’ Benjamin said.

JAMB said that preparations for the smooth conduct of the examination had been concluded with all necessary logistics in place.

No fewer than 1.7 million candidates are expected to participate in the examination in 633 centres nationwide.
