JAMB Registers 1.1m Candidates

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says it has so far registered more than one million candidates as of Saturday, March 12, in its ongoing 2022 exercise.

The board disclosed this in its Weekly Bulletin of the Office of the Registrar on Monday in Abuja.

JAMB stated that the registration for its 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE), which began on Feb.19, would close on March 26.

The board said that 1,121, 123 candidates have so far registered for the exercise.

It added that more than N600 million cumulative amount derived from the regulated N700 service charges of the exercise had so far been remitted to the accredited Computer Based Tests (CBT) centers.

“JAMB had so far remitted over N600 million service charges to respective centers, in line with the cashless policy of the board, which represents the total number of candidates, multiplied by N700.

“This payment, however, excludes JAMB-owned CBT centers.

“N104,899,300 was paid in the first week of registration; N251,730,500 in the second week of registration and N332,150,700 was paid for last week’s registration.

“Cumulatively, more than N600 million had been paid to the CBT centers as center charges.”
