The Registrar and Chief Executive of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced that the ongoing JAMB Registration for 2017 UTME has been suspended till Monday.
He revealed that this development is as a result of the mock examination holding tomorrow April 8th, 2017 in all the accredited centres in the country; since all the registration centres will be used as examination venue for the JAMB Mock examination.
This is to ensure that the JAMB mock exam is successful and to prevent disruption of any kind during the conduct of the JAMB mock examination.
According to him, the suspension takes effect from 8:00PM Today Friday 7th April, 2017.
The registration exercise will commence again on Monday 10th, April 2017.
He called on all the officers, accredited centres and candidates to comply strictly with this directive.
However, he mentioned that candidates can go ahead to buy their ePINs either from banks, NIPOST or via the inter-switch and RTemita platform on JAMB website so that they can continue with their registration by Monday.
This means that the purchase of ePINs continues. It is only registration that has been suspended till Monday April 10th, 2017.
