Why JAMB Might Admit More Candidates This Year (2018)




The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board reveal that there is a decrease in the number of registered candidates for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations in 2018.

The Registrar of the Board, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, unveiled this to newsmen on Wednesday in Abuja when he said that a total number of 1,662,762 candidates registered for the 2018 UTME, within a period of two months, as against a total of 1,718,425 candidates who registered within one month in 2017.

He clarified that the decrease was as a result of the measures put in place by the board to prevent multiple registration and other unpleasant practices by candidates. He also states that the board recorded a pleasantly high number of candidates for the 2018 UTME examinations from foreign countries.
