He said the board got a mandate from the Senate some weeks ago to increase the registration for the UTME by one month. He said the month extension as mandated by the Senate would elapse on May 28 when JAMB will finally close its registration portal.

“As I speak, we have registered additional 1,100 candidates,” Oloyede said. NAIJ.com recalls that the JAMB registrar had earlier announced that out of the 1,648,429 candidates writing the ongoing UTME, the results of 1,048,914 have been released.

Oloyede noted that the candidates were also not doing bad going by the results so far released by the examination body.
