UTME 2017: No More Multiple Registration For Direct Entry – JAMB Warns
The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) has issued a very strict warning to Direct Entry candidates of the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) to desist from multiple registrations as they would be penalized with disqualified if discovered.
The statement dispatched on Sunday, July 16 partly reads:
The public is requested to note that any candidate who indulges in double registration would be caught by our software and disqualified.
This information is necessary for the public to know so that when such candidates are sanctioned, it would be understood.
The statement further disclosed that the board has designed a software, known as Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS) where human interference would be completely removed.
The admission criteria would be keyed into the software to select candidates blindly, according to the institutions’ requirement without any primordial consideration. Once the candidate meets the requirements, he would be picked without knowing anybody in the institution.
Is Direct Entry Form Out?
The answer is YES! According to the examination body, JAMB, the sale of form is ongoing and over 40billion has been remitted to the government coffers.
