A total of 1,434,632 candidates have registered for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations .
The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB, said this in a bulletin issued in Abuja on Monday .
The bulletin read in part, “The 2020 UTME/ Direct Entry registration is now 1,434,632, with seven days to go. The board has concluded arrangementS for the conduct of the February 18 Mock Examination. The mock is at no cost to candidates, except the N600 payable to the private centre owners for candidates posted to centres not owned by JAMB.
“Candidates can print their mock examination slips, which are available online, to know when and where to take the examination. The mock examination, which is voluntary, is an initiative to prepare candidates for the main UTME and it helps candidates to be in tune with the rudiments of a CBT examination.
“Therefore, results from the mock examination will not be added or have any effect on the main examination. The board wishes to state that the era of regularisation or condoning illegal admissions is over.”
