NIN: 600,000 UTME Applicants Unable To Register, JAMB Weighs Options
The JAMB boss, however, stated that the mock examination would begin on May 20 as stipulated earlier.
“Presently, we have 1.2 million candidates that have registered, but we expect 1.9 million. 600,000 candidates had made attempts to register, but because of NIN, they could not.“We want to do an appraisal of all the issues to know if we are extending registration or not. If we find out that we can give 80 per cent of those who have made attempts other passwords, then there will be no need to extend registration.
“We have to determine where the problem is coming from before we can say we are extending. After today, we will address the press tomorrow (Saturday) on the outcome of the meeting on the main examination dates and registration. We want to assess what is happening.”
