The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board JAMB has released the total number of candidates that have registered for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination UTME and Direct Entry for the 2022/2023 session.

According to the Weekly Bulletin that was released from the Office of the Registrar on Monday, 28th Match, 2022 in Abuja. The bulletin reads ” The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board said 1, 837, 011 candidates were registered at the end of its 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

The sale of electronic Personal Identification Number for Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and Direct Entry which commenced on February 19th ,2022 was closed at 26th March, 2022.

The board also added that N238, 105, 700 cumulative amount derived from the regulated N700 service charges from the fifth week of the exercise had been remitted to its accredited Computer Based Tests (CBT) centres.

The News Agency Of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that the board had earlier banned the use of cash in all its accredited CBT centres during the exercise.

It directed all candidates to pay the service charges to the e-PIN vendors along with the N3,500 application fees, which it remits to the centres on a weekly basis proportional to the number of candidates they register.

The policy, it added, had reduced the sharp practices associated with tying down candidates to non-performing centres.

It explained that the policy was also introduced to curb the excesses of some fraudulent CBT centres, which extort candidates.

JAMB said that it had made significant progress in the registration of candidates for the 2022 exercise, as compared to the 2021 exercise.

It attributed the improvement to its partnership with the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC), while adding that the seamless process had yielded the desired results.

Lastly, the board has announced that the 2022 UTME mock will hold on April 9th ,2022 and not April 16th 2022 as earlier arranged. The board also said that the main UTME exams will commence on the 6th of May, 2022 to 16th of May, 2022.
