2024 UTME: JAMB Okays 747 CBT Centres For Registration

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has certified 747 Computer Based Test, CBT, Centres for the 2024 UTME exercise scheduled to begin on Monday.

The Board made this known in a bulletin issued in Abuja by the Public Communication Advisor, PAC, Dr Fabian Benjamin.

The Board had shortlisted 907 CBT centres for accreditation, but after revalidation and integrity tests, it could only certify 747 centres for the 2024 UTME exercise.

A NAN reporter who monitored registration at various CBT centres in the Federal Capital Terrritory, FCT, and its environs revealed that candidates were seen in their numbers at the various centres visited.

Some of the candidates who shared their experiences said the registration was seamless, while others said otherwise.

At the Future Gate CBT centre in One-Man Village, a candidate, Chinaza Onuegbu, who expressed worry over his inability to register, said he was directed to register in another centre without any reason.

Onuegbu, however, said that on another thought, he went back to request why he won’t be allowed to register but was told to come back on Tuesday with his JAMB profile code, which he has not gotten.

“I was at the Future Gate to register for my Direct Entry but was not allowed to register. I was told to go to another CBT centre if allowed.

“I moved to another centre within that vicinity but was told to return to the Future Gate to resolve any problem.

“Immediately I got back to Future Gate centre, I met someone who told me to bring my profile code, but I could not produce it because I didn’t understand what it meant.

“I was, however, asked to go home and get my profile code and bring it tomorrow so I can be registered.”
