JAMB Commences Sale Of 2015 UTME Forms

share on:

JAMB has announced its application forms for the 2015 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), which is now available nationwide for prospective candidates, reaffirming that the examination will be on Computer-Based Test (mode) only.

This was disclosed recently when Nigerian Pilot called on the Spokesperson of the Board, Mr. Fabian Benjamin.

He said the registration period will last between Monday September 15, 2014 and Thursday January 15, 2015, while the website closes Monday January 19, 2015.

He also noted that in addition to the registration fee, candidates will be expected to pay additional N500 for a copy of a newly introduced textbook, ‘The Last Days at Forcados High School’, adding that the Board has made arrangement to provide the book to avoid the challenge of availability and piracy and that the textbooks will be issued at the point of registration.

According to the JAMB Spokesman, the Board has also introduced a regulated registration format where only our Computer-Based Test, CBT, centers and state offices nationwide are authorised to register candidates.

“The idea of a regulated registration centre is to prevent situations where candidates are exploited and to check impersonation, including other acts of malpractices”, he said.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), through its registrar recently stated that candidates who were not computer literate would not be allowed to write any examination coordinated by the board from 2015. Although, the board had embarked on the establishment of computer test centres across the country to prepare students for all its examinations, many are still of the opinion that mandating candidates to write a computer-based test (CBT) may not be feasible.

  1. I hope that the new decision by JAMB to restrict registration to some centres will not just rubbish their effort of the past.
    Students writing JAMB are coming from secondary schools, so why would JAMB now restrict the registration to IT centres in the tertiary institutions.

    More so, they should just leave it open even for any candidate who can download and afford the facility.
    This retriction is a set back no doubt and will make one remember those days when you have to travel to buy or submit your forms.
    For instance there are only 13 centres in Lagos as at today 26/09/2014 which used to have over 2000 centres.

    This colaborations will create room for extortions by the school as we have seen in the past. For instance when govt allowed POST UTME some schools now charge as much as 2500 for the exam and 3500 for checking result…..
