The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has stated that candidates who are already matriculated students of any tertiary institution are not allowed to site for UTME.
This was made this known by the PRO of the board during a phone conversation with newsmen on Monday.
According to him, “Students with matriculation numbers of universities are not eligible to sit for the UTME. If they are not satisfied with their chosen disciplines, they can ask for transfer.”
On the issues of extension of deadline due to hitches, he said, “We registered 600,000 candidates in 10 days and if we go on at this pace, it means we would have registered 1.2million in 20 days. We want Nigerians to be patient and every eligible candidate will be registered by April 19, when the registration will close.”
