The 2020 UTME has wowed the examination body as an extremely large amount Nigerians have indicated their interest in partaking in the 2020 Unified Territory Matriculation Examination (UTME). It was stated that it's barely two weeks since the portal was opened, the board had recorded a registration rate of over 700,000 candidates who have been fully registered for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and awaiting examination.
The national spokesman of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Fabian Benjamin, on Sunday, January 26, told Nigerian Tribune that JAMB has blacklisted about 41 Computer-Based Test (CBT) centres following allegations of fraud and deficiency on the part of technicians leveled against those CBT centres.
JAMB's spokesman said: “It has come to the knowledge of the Board that some elite schools are using the name of the Board to extort a huge sum of money from parents under the guise that the Board has ordered such payments. The Board wishes to make it clear that unlike the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), the National Examinations Council (NECO) and others, the UTME and the Direct Entry (DE) registration and examination exercises are not school-based."
