The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) had on Thursday announced that the registration for the 2019/2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) will commence in December.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), head of Media of the board, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, announced this while addressing newsmen during the conduct of promotion exercise for the Nigerian Customs Service (NCS), at the board’s Computer Based Test (CBT) Centre in Abuja.
According to Benjamin, no specific date has been fixed for the commencement of the registration yet.
He, however, said that plans were underway to do so as soon as possible as the board was initially waiting for the pronouncement of the presidency on the reduction of the examinations fees, which was formally announced on Wednesday.
NAN reports that the Federal Executive Council on Wednesday approved the downward review of the examination registration fees from N5000 to N3500 effective from January 2019.
