The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has announced the extension of registration for 2018 UTME till the eleventh of February, 2018. The spokesperson of the board, Fabian Benjamin, disclosed this in a press statement on Tuesday evening.
The board had said in December that the sale of form and registration for all candidates including those from foreign countries will hold from December sixth, 2017 to February sixth, 2018.
While saying that the failure of these candidates to register is unfortunate, the board added that this culture of impunity will not be tolerated and that penalty may be imposed for late registration in future. It urged candidates to take advantage of the extension to register as request for further extension would not be entertained.
The board, however, said registration for direct entry candidates continues. The board had proposed March ninth to seventeenth, 2018 as the date for the examination.
