JAMB has reported that over 1.9 million candidates have registered to write the 2020 UTME so far. This is the highest in JAMB history. This was made known by Dr Fabian Benjamin, the board’s head of Media and Information, as JAMB prepares to close registration by Midnight of 17th Feb, 2020.
With over 1.9 million candidates, this year’s admission will definitely come as a serious competition.
All focus now goes to the 2020 Mock exam which has been scheduled for 18th February. According to Mr. Benjamin, “A total of 669 out of the 747 centres across the country will be used for the conduct of the computer-based test (CBT). One of the purposes of the mock examination is to test-run the facilities in these centres. Anyone of them that falls short of standard will automatically be delisted,” he said.
