The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has disclosed that it has registered 92,490 candidates for the upcoming 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.
JAMB also disclosed that 67,328 candidates had registered to sit for the mock examination scheduled for March 16.
Giving a breakdown of the registration fees, the exam board said two e-pins are available for purchase. Candidates may register to take the mock UTME if they so desire.
“As a result of the UTME exercise, two e-pins are available: N5,700 for without mock UTME and N6,700 for with mock UTME, while direct entry is N4,700.
“The approved UTME fee remains N3,500; reading text N500; registration fee N700; with N1000 for the Computer Based Test (CBT) examination fee and an optional N1000 for the candidates’ mock examination,” it said.
The board also said it also remits funds to the CBT centres weekly what is due to them. They stated that the measure was put in place to stop the extortion of candidates.
The exam board also outlined other measures which they have put in place to prevent exam malpractice and aid in a hitch-free exam.
“Candidates will be notified of their new schedule centres before they leave the examination centre.
