The Registrar, Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Is’haq Oloyede, says more than 440,000 candidates have sat for the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) within two days across the country.
The Registrar told journalists in Abuja on Monday that the exams would end in Bauchi, Abia, Niger states and some other states on May 15 while the UTME would continue in Kebbi state, Lagos state, Oyo and some other states.
“Candidates should be careful because some of these people go about telling the candidates they can give them questions.
On the blockage of candidates at Ladoke Akintola University, he said, “We understand that there is a sort of strike by either staff or students in Lautech and two of our centres are in that school.
“However, arrangement are being made already to transfer the students because there are no private CBT centres in Ogbomosho and the closest place is Ilorin because of the proximity.
“So we believe it is better than taking them to Ibadan or any other place in Oyo state.”
