On Tuesday the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) said the sale of registration forms for the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation will no longer start in December.
Dr Fabian Benjamin, who is the Head of Media and Information of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the board had thought of starting the sale in December but dropped the idea following Federal Government’s reduction in the registration fee with effect from January 2019.
“The attention of the board has been drawn to information going round in some social media that JAMB has already begun the sale of forms for UTME.
“We are not commencing the sale of the forms until January 2019, and the window period will be for six weeks.
“Prospective candidates should note this period in order not to fall prey to fraudsters,’’ he said.
Benjamin gave the assurance that the board would make adequate publicity towards the sale of the UTME.
According to him, the board would agree with the directive on the reduction of the registration cost.
