He added that there were no hitches at all across the various accredited registration centres nationwide.“We have concluded the registration and we recorded over 1.8 million candidates for the UTME this year.“Registration closed on February 21, when we stopped the pin vending for the exercise.“However, some candidates who had acquired the pin but were unable to register before February 21, due to one reason or the other, were allowed to do so till 12 midnight, February 25.JAMB Registrar recently announced reduction of UTME score to 120 for universities and 100 for polytechnics and colleges of education“The registration finally closed on February 25”, he said.He, therefore, urged candidates and other stakeholders to remain calm, reassuring them that the board would make an announcement and proper sensitization about the date for the examination and printing of examination notification slip.
