The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has said it is set to commence registration for 2019/2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination in December as scheduled.
The Head of Media of the Board, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, announced this in Abuja today.
Benjamin stated that no specific date has been fixed for the commencement of the registration yet. He, however, said that plans are underway to do so as soon as possible, as the board was initially waiting for the pronouncement of the presidency on the reduction of the examinations fee, which was formally announced on Wednesday.
The federal government had approved the downward review of the examination registration fees from N5,000 to N3,500 effective from January 2019. Benjamin said it is commendable what the President has done as he is someone who has the interest of the masses at heart.
Benjamin reiterated the board’s readiness to continuously give the general public the desired impact to further enhance institutions through conducting transparent and credible examinations at its CBT centres, nationwide.
