JAMB Warns Against Multiple Registration For UTME, Direct Entry

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said it will not condone multiple registration for Direct Entry (DE) and Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

This was contained in a statement signed by JAMB’s Head of Public Relations, Mr Fabian Benjamin, in Abuja on Sunday.

Benjamin described the act of multiple registration as a serious offence and explained that the warning had become imperative for people to know and understand that violation of such rule would attract sanctions.

“Candidates are to note that our advertisement for 2017 UTME clearly states the penalty for any candidate caught buying two forms.

“Members of the public are requested to note that any candidate who indulges in double registration will be caught by our software and disqualified.

“The Board is not interested in the candidates’ money as is being insinuated by certain group who suggested to the Board that such registration will enhance the revenue base of the Board.

“No, we are more interested in the credibility of the examination and not the money, if money is our concern we will not be returning over five billion naira to the Federal Government coffers”, he stated.
