The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has officially announced that the sales of JAMB registration form for 2019 UTME will commence on January 10th, 2019. The announcement was made by JAMB’s Registrar Professor Oloyede during a meeting with owners of JAMB Computer Based Test Centres at the University of Lagos.
According to professor Oloyede, the sales of form will start January 10th and last for 6 weeks. Followed by the examination in March. He further disclosed that the board will not allow Cyber Cafe operators to register candidates because they are extorting candidates and overcharging them and also engaging in services that they do not have the capacity to do.
The professor urged all prospective candidates to do their registration and access the board’s major services in any of its 718 accredited centres in the country. He assured that the general elections would not affect the sale of forms, adding that the board had adjusted its examination schedule ahead of the election.
With this announcement, all prospective candidates are urged to kick start their preparation towards the 2019 UTME. For a start, candidates are advised to use the 2019 JAMB Brochure, to confirm the courses they intend to study, requirements and schools that offer such courses. Also, the 2019 JAMB Syllabus will help guide you on the topics you are required to cover for each of the subjects you will be taking in 2019 UTME.
Prof Oloyede equally revealed that there will be special centres for visually impaired candidates. He added that the board was already considering the introduction of a new technology for smooth conduct of the examination for such candidates.
He finally warned that the board would not tolerate any JAMB-related materials in all the centres, especially question papers, as most often turned out to be fake, thereby duping innocent candidates. He said that JAMB would also not hesitate to blacklist any centre that attempted to undermine the integrity of its examination through infractions.
