UTME 2015: 1.47m Applicants to write 2015 UTME JAMB !!!!

A total of 1,475,477 candidates registered for the 2015 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) conducted by the Joint Admission, Matriculation and Examination Board (JAMB).
This year’s UTME is scheduled to hold between Tuesday, March 10 and Saturday, March 21 across 400 centers in the country and seven foreign countries namely – Ghana, Cameroon, Republic of Benin, Saudi Arabia, South Africa and Ethiopia.
JAMB Registrar, Prof. Dibu Ojerinde, who disclosed this Thursday in Abuja at a press conference to announce the Board’s preparation for the examination, also revealed that 208 prison inmates from Kaduna and Ikoyi prisons will write the examination.
He, however, lamented that the total number of candidates that registered for the examination was a far cry from the last year’s examination in which 1,632,172 candidates sat for the paper pencil test, the dual based test and computer based test.
While attributing the decline in the number of applications to insecurity in some parts of the country, Prof. Ojerinde explained that there was a decrease of 156,695 applicants compared to last year, adding that the registration process for the computer based examination had also eliminated the incidence of dual or multiple registrations by candidates.
The JAMB Registrar, who debunked insinuations that the Board had postponed the examination, said the transformation to a full blown computer based test became imperative in order to resolve the challenges faced by the Board in the conduct of its examination
