The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has registered 1.1 million candidates for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculations Examination which is billed for between March 14 and April 4.

The board gave this update in an interview with our correspondent on Saturday, noting that a total of 47 Computer-Based Test centres had been suspended nationwide over extortions, technical issues and other infractions.

Sunday PUNCH reports that the UTME candidates were given a registration period of between January 13 and February 17, 2020, and have already hit 1.1 million with over two weeks to the deadline.

In 2019, over 1.8 million candidates registered for the UTME.

The JAMB Head of Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin, confirmed the figures on Saturday, noting that two CBT centres were suspended on Saturday and added to make a total of 47 CBT centres.

He said, “So far, we have about 1.1 million candidates registered as at today (Saturday). We still have more than two weeks of registration.

“A lot of arrests have been made concerning fraudulent CBT centres and the arrests are ongoing. Just today, we had two more centres suspended. That brings the total of CBT centres suspended to 47.
