Over 1,900,000 candidates have registered for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board disclosed the figure on Sunday as it expects the number to rise before the midnight deadline on Monday.

The examination has been fixed for March 14 to April 4.

Head of Press and Public Relations for JAMB, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, said the 1.9million registered candidates were the highest number of candidates the board had ever registered.

He said, “The registration closes on Monday night. As I speak to you, we have registered over 1.9million. That is the highest we have ever had in the 41-year history of the board. Right now, we have surpassed the last year’s statistics at 1.8million. That is to tell you that nobody has an excuse of why he or she could not register.

“On the February 18 Mock, we have put everything in place. Our workers who are deployed for the exercise are already on the field. And as you are aware, the essence of the mock is to test the readiness of our facilities and also give the candidates the opportunity to have a hands-on experience on the computers.”
