The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has closed the sale the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination forms.

JAMB’s Head of Media, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, made this known during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.
Benjamin said the sales of form ended on Thursday, 21st of Feb. 2019. He however said that online registration was still ongoing.

“This is because some people earlier bought e-pins for the exams but were unable to register now, so we are monitoring them online and would give them the opportunity to register.
“Therefore, we cannot give the exact figure of the registered candidates for now until this is over,” Benjamin stated.

Benjamin added that the registration would continue until the board decides when it would come to an end.

On the issue of rescheduled dates for both mock and the main examinations, Benjamin said that the board was yet to decide on a new date but would give updates as soon as possible.

NAN reports that the board considered rescheduling the initial dates for the examination because of the shift of dates for the general elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
