“As at the close of work on Thursday, I can comfortably say that we have registered close to 1.6 million candidates for the examination.
“This year’s registration too can be adjudged as one of the best in recent times as it has been smooth, hitch and rancour-free.
“Having said this though, the board will like to warn that there may be no more extension of period of registration for candidates in our future examinations.
“This is because some mischievous persons may want to seize the opportunity of the lengthy period of registration to carry out infractions that could undermine the integrity of the examination,’’.
“We are seriously considering reducing the registration period to about one month.
JAMB registration ends on February 11, 2018
JAMB had earlier announced that the sale of the 2018 UTME will end on Tuesday, February 6, 2018, but in a bid to accommodate more candidates to register for the examination, the exam body extended the sales of forms deadline till February 11, 2018.
Meanwhile, the 2018 UTME is scheduled to hold from March 9 to March 17.
