HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES URGE JAMB TO MAKE AN EXTENSION TO UTME EXAM DEADLINE



The House of Representatives has called on the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB to extend the registration deadline for the registration of 2017 UTME.

This came after the motion raised by Danburan Nuhu (Kano-APC).
According to Mr. Nuhu during the 2016 UTME exercise, about 1.6 million applicants registered for the UTME and about one million passed. He stated that the 2017 exercise might reach 2 million across the country given the growing number of applicants.

He noted that some of the approved registration centres are registering only 250 applicants at a time; most of them do not have enough space and adequate number of computers which has constituted a major set back to the speed and adequate productivity of the registration process.

He therefore beckoned on JAMB to specify the requirements including safety measures, that approved centres need to put in place in order to participate in the conduct of UTME Computer Based Test and ensure to deploy safety equipment and personnel to each centre to forestall any occurance of stampede due to overcrowding.

The motion was unanimously adopted by the House and the committee on basic education was mandated to direct JAMB to comply as soon as possible with the resolutions reached by the house.

The JAMB had earlier stated that it has no plans of extending the registration deadline but with this development, we are simply expecting the matriculation board to see to reason and have the deadline extended in order accommodate the teeming population who are yet to register for the examination
