The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Thursday advised all prospective candidates intending to register for the 2015 Computer Based Test (CBT) to do so on or before friday, 30th January, 2015.
JAMB said that the sale of forms for the examination commenced since September, 2014 and would end on January 30th, adding that the website would close on that the same day.
This was made know by the Public Relations Officer of JAMB, Mr Fabian Benjamin, in Lagos.
Fabian stated that the 2015 UTME application closes on Friday, 30th January, 2015 and all candidates desirous of sitting for the examination are advised to immediately obtain the application documents at the designated banks.
“This is to ensure that they get registered and avoid being left out.
“In view of the above, the board has completed all processes and preparations and has put in place all logistics needed to conduct a hitch-free examination,” the statement said.
According to him, the examination will be computer-based.
“We are ready for the examination even now.
“We are going to start the CBT exam all over the country on March 4, and it will continue for two weeks.
It said that no fewer than 400 centres would be used for the examination in Nigeria and abroad.
According to the statement, members of other examination bodies in Africa and beyond have indicated interest to understudy the board’s CBT during the examination.
It said the development was an indication of the confidence of the international community in the board’s ability as manifested in the two previous exercises in 2013 and 2014.
The statement urge all Candidates to disregard any contrary information as the examination is scheduled to hold beginning March 4th 2015.
The statement further advised candidates to shun all acts that were contrary to the conduct of an examination of international standard like the board’s CBT.
It warned that the board would not hesitate to impose severe sanction on any candidate found wanting.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the board wishes to state that any candidate who registered twice will have his or her result cancelled.
“JAMB has a mechanism that detects double registration, irrespective of how it is disguised.
“The board has also made adequate arrangements to ensure that blind candidates sit for the 2015 UTME, using CBT,’’ it said.
Fabian enjoined candidates to study hard to be able to pass.
He, therefore, expressed the organisation’s resolve to eliminate examination malpractices.
The registrar explained that the choice of the CBT was to curb exam malpractices, release results at the same time and encourage candidates to prepare adequately.
