The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) have so far registered 1.5 million candidates for the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
The Registrar of JAMB, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, made this known on Saturday during JAMB Mock Exams.
“So far, it has even been better than our expectation, it was a mock, the intention was to test the technology and it proved to be perfect.
“I think from what we are seeing, we are more than ready for the main examination.
“At least 90 per cent of the examination centres have reported positively, there have been proper downloading and preparation; even after the exam we had uploaded responses of 80 per cent.
“We have done it to show that what works elsewhere across the world should work in Nigeria; we believe we can do it efficiently; we will continue to do our best.
“We have registered over 1.5million candidates in less than five weeks; we believe that the reality we have put in place is good enough,” he said.
Speaking further, Prof. Oloyede said that 633 centres were used to conduct the mock examination for 153, 000 candidates across the country.
