The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) will open registration for the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) on January 10, 2019.

The JAMB Registrar, Prof Is-haq Oloyede said, at a stakeholders’ meeting with CBT Centre operators and others at the University of Lagos on Thursday that the sale of e-PIN for the examination would last for six weeks.

He said: “Sales of forms begins January 10, and it will be sold for six weeks.”

Oloyede also added that the registration for the examination would be done only by 718 accredited CBT centres spread across the country.

He warned them against sharp practices so they do not suffer the fate of 50 CBT centres struck off JAMB’s list last year.

Oloyede who warned every prospecting candidate to discard all unregistered cyber cafe centres, urged them to choose any of the 718 centres if they want to receive any major JAMB services.

In his words; “There were more than five culprits in different part of country.

“Some of them used some technology to extend the place of registration, thereby duped the candidates.

“Contrary to normal registration procedures, registering candidates off site, such candidates thumb prints will not be there and at the point of examination, the candidate will not be able to write the exam.

“They did that for so many reasons, including having access to our private network and a number of them have been arrested and we have interviewed them.

“At one of the centres at Igara in Edo State, they did a lot of infractions. One of it was that, a staff was writing for a candidate and because we monitored it from a far.

“I came there personally and we moved to their system, unknown to them that we have copied it. They tampered with their CD and erased it from the CD by the time they were summiting to us and we felt that was a very serious infraction. “They were extorting candidates, overcharging and doing services they do not have the capacity to do.
