UTME: JAMB begins centre allocation Tuesday

Ahead of the forthcoming Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), which is scheduled to commence on Saturday, May 13, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has advised candidates to reprint their electronic slips any moment from Tuesday, May 9, to know their centres and dates of the examinations.
In a short statement posted on his Facebook wall, the examination body’s Director of Press, Dr. Fabian Benjamen, advised the candidates to disregard any examination schedule being circulated earlier.
The statement read: “Reprinting of e-slip for the examination will start on Tuesday, 9th May,2017. Candidates are to print the slip to know their scheduled date, centre venue and time of examination. Please disregard any earlier date being circulated.”
Dr. Benjamin confirmed that the more than 1.7 million candidates who registered for this year’s examination remains the highest enrolment figure ever recorded by JAMB. He, however, could not give the exact figure, saying the examination body was still compiling it.
