The Chairman , Governing Board of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board , Dr Emmanuel Ndukwe , has said that due to the observed seamlessness of the registration process for the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination , he does not foresee an extension of the registration date beyond February 21.
He made this known after monitoring the ongoing registration of candidates in Ha- Shem Academy centre , Iwaya , Federal College of Education ( Technical) Akoka centre , and the Electronic Test Centre , Anthony in Lagos on Friday.
Advising candidates to register now to avoid last minute rush , Ndukwe said , “ I don ’ t foresee an extension . Some of the places we visited had many systems but a few candidates. Let the candidates out there be mindful of the examination dates and register now. ”
On the outcome of monitoring the centres and interacting with candidates , Ndukwe said he was satisfied that the complaints associated with cybercafes were now a thing of the past and the days of extorting candidates and poor data management were over.
“ It is seamless and we are happy . What I have seen today has confirmed that Prof . Oloyede and his technical team were very right to ban cybercafes . I have interacted with the candidates ; they are all happy and satisfied . I must express the satisfaction of the board. This year is better than last year and it will be better next year . ”
Ndukwe also warned CBT centre operators on sharp practices as he promised that offenders would be sanctioned .
At the inspected centres , no candidate reported being charged more than the official examination fee .
