The Joint Admission and Registration Board (JAMB) has disclosed that it might extend the one-month deadline given to applicants to register for the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME).
He disclosed this while dressing newsmen in Abuja.
According to him, an extension is being considered to ensure that no prospective applicant is shut out of the registration process.
Mr. Oloyede said about one million candidates had so far registered for the examination, and expressed hope that the remaining one week left for registration would be sufficient to capture all those desirous of writing the test this year.
In his words,”as stated earlier, no one will be left behind as the deadline may be extended if there are applicants who do not succeed at registering due to circumstances beyond their control.”
