1.5 million students have enrolled for the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, according to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (UTME).

The exam body restated its position in its Weekly Bulletin published on Monday, March 21, 2022, that the registration period will finish on Saturday, March 26, 2022.

The sale of electronic Personal Identification Numbers for the next UTME and Direct Entry exams, which began on February 19, will stop on Saturday, according to JAMB.

It went on to say that no extensions would be given after the registration period had ended.

“This emphasis is essential because of the persistent drop in the number of e-PINs being vended, as well as the low turnout of candidates at the various centres across the nation.

“It would be recalled that the board had stated that it would not extend the registration beyond the window allotted to it by relevant authorities to conduct the exercise.

“As discussed earlier, registration dates are not fixed arbitrarily but through a consensus of the Federal Ministry of Education and examination agencies, before the commencement of the exercise.

“Therefore, all candidates who desired to register for this year’s examination are to do so immediately, as they only have this week and no extension would be granted after close of registration, ” JAMB stated.

As of Saturday, March 19, 2020, 1, 512, 739 individuals had registered for the next UTME exam, according to JAMB.

The board further said that during the fourth week of the exercise, it had remitted N261, 992, 200 to approved Computer Based Tests centres, as well as the N700 accumulated service charge.
