UTME 2024: 1.9 Million Candidates Successfully Registered as Registration Deadline Closes

In a triumphant announcement, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) revealed today that a staggering 1.9 million candidates have completed their registration for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) as the registration portal officially closes.

The UTME, a mandatory Computer-Based Test (CBT), serves as a crucial gateway for admission into both public and private tertiary institutions in Nigeria. With an annual participation of over 1.5 million candidates, the examination plays a pivotal role in shaping the academic future of aspiring undergraduates.

Since the commencement of the registration process on January 15, JAMB reported a significant milestone, surpassing the one million registered candidates within the initial three weeks across more than 700 accredited registration centers.

In its latest weekly bulletin published today, JAMB disclosed that a grand total of 1,975,926 candidates successfully completed the registration process. Marking the closure of the registration portal, the focus now shifts to the next phase of the examination process.

Notably, the board highlighted the MockUTME, for which 260,249 candidates have successfully registered. The mock test is scheduled to take place on Thursday, 7th March, providing candidates with a preview of the actual examination environment.

In recognition of the pivotal role played by registration centers, JAMB also disclosed that it has remitted a total of N1.3 billion to these centers for their invaluable services. The payments were distributed across the weeks of registration, with N98.7 million in the first week, N295.7 million in the second week, N279.86 million in the third week, N251.9 million in the fourth week, N262.5 million in the fifth week, and N135.9 million in the sixth week.

JAMB clarified that the decision to include registration charges as part of the examination fee aimed to prevent private registration centers from overcharging candidates. The board emphasized its commitment to ensuring transparency and fairness throughout the registration process.

However, in a move to maintain the integrity of the exercise, JAMB delisted five CBT centers and suspended one for engaging in conduct deemed detrimental to the registration process. The board asserted that its stringent measures aim to uphold the credibility of the UTME.

As the registration portal closes, anticipation builds for the forthcoming UTME examinations, where 1.9 million candidates will put their knowledge to the test, paving the way for their academic journey into Nigerian tertiary institutions.
