The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has announced the extension of registration for 2018 UTME till February 11, 2018. The spokesperson of the board, Fabian Benjamin, disclosed this in a press statement made available to PREMIUM TIMES on Tuesday evening.
The registration which was initially scheduled to end on 6th will now continue till midnight Sunday 11th February.
Also the board has made series of Tweets on their official Twitter account @JAMBHQ to confirm this.
“JAMB as a responsive organisation has taken the decision albeit with great hesitation to accommodate candidates who failed to register between the two months window period that ended at midnight of Tuesday, 6th February, 2018,” Mr. Benjamin said
The agency, however, said such extensions in future may involve some penalty.
“The failure of these candidates to register is unfortunate and the Board hastens to add that this culture of impunity will not be tolerated and indeed penalty may be imposed for late registration in future.
“Candidates are therefore strongly advised to take advantage of the extension to register as request for further extension would not be entertained,” the spokesperson said.
“For emphasis, 2018 UTME registration now closes at midnight of Sunday, 11th February, 2018.”
The board, however, said registration for direct entry candidates continues. March 9 to 17 still remains the date for JAMB 2018 examination.
