JAMB 2019-2020 Registration Date
Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, has assured that the conduct of the 2019 examination will be better.
He also announced that registration for the exams would commence before the end of October, urging prospective candidates to visit the board’s website, download JAMB app, syllabus and brochures.
He said these during an interactive session with CBT owners from across the country.
Below are some factors to note regarding JAMB 2019 UTME;
JAMB 2019 Registration fee
Despite the call from some quarters on JAMB to reduce the registration fee, the Board Registrar has maintained that the fee would not be reduced
“Why are they not asking WAEC (to reduce fee)? Why are they not asking NECO? Why are they not asking NABTEB? Why JAMB? We charge the least and you are saying reduce”. Oloyede questioned why people are calling for the reduction of the fee.
Students in SS1 might be disqualified from participating
The numbers of candidates for the 2019 UTME might not be as much as that of the 2018 edition as JAMB plans to reduce the numbers.
When asked about how many candidates are expected to participate in the upcoming exam, Oloyede said, ”it is difficult to say the exact number of applicants we are expecting this time. We expect to crash the number because many of those who are taking the forms are not even prepared or qualified for the exam.
“Some are SS1 students, who are just trying; contributing N5,000 unduly to our purse. We are putting in place some checks to make people who want to apply to be minimally qualified.
