The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has given candidates who could not upload and complete their registration process two days to do so.
The board, in a statement issued in Abuja on Tuesday February 23, 2016 by its Head of Media, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, said that its website would be open to candidates from 12:00am on Tuesday to 12:00am on Thursday for candidates to complete and upload all late registration.
JAMB said the new development does not cover fresh candidates who are yet to begin the registration process.
The statement said all arrangements have been made for the commencement of the 2016 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME).
The board urged all candidates to print their examination slips to know the date of their examinations, venue and time allotted to them.
The statement reads: “The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board hereby direct all candidates who have initiated the process of registration for the 2016 UTME but couldn’t upload and complete their registration process as at Friday 5th February, 2016 to do so within 48 hours starting from 12 midnight on Tuesday, 23rd February 2016 when the website will be opened to 12 midnight on Thursday, 25th February, 2016 when the website will be closed.
“The Board wishes to state that the directive doesn’t cover fresh registration but only those who had either done offline registration or visited our website but could submit.
“The Board wishes to state that all arrangements for the 2016 UTME have been completed and examination will commence as earlier stated.
“Candidates are also urged to print their examination slips for the schedules of their date, venue, time allotted to them and other necessary information.”
