Following the expiration of registration deadline on Tuesday, February 13, the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has given some candidates 24 hours to complete their registration for the 2018 UTME.
The Board’s spokesperson, Dr Fabian Benjamin made the announcement in a press statement released on Tuesday, February 13 in Abuja.
Benjamin said candidates who paid and obtained e-pins but could not register before the close of sales of form are allowed to complete their registration within 24 hours.
He said, “This applies to only candidates who had initiated registration processes and have paid and procured the registration epins but could not register at the close of sales. Take note that candidates are not to generate any profile codes (55019) for the purpose of 2018 UTME registration as doing so would have no effect and a waste of time and resources. Profile codes generation through 55019 will only be used for Direct Entry Registration which is still ongoing”.
JAMB extended the registration deadline to accommodate more candidates
JAMB had on Tuesday, February 6, extended the registration for the 2018 UTME by one week.
The Board said the registration was extended to accommodate candidates who have not registered.
