JAMB warns against multiple registrations

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has warned against multiple registrations by candidates in the ongoing registration for Direct Entry (DE) and unified tertiary matriculation examination (UTME) for foreign centres.

Its Head of Information, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, gave the warning in a statement yesterday in Abuja.

Benjamin said any candidate caught doing double registrations would be disqualified by the board.

He reminded candidates that indulging in multiple registrations is an offence in the process of obtaining the DE or UTME.

The statement reads: “Our advertisement for 2017 UTME clearly states the penalty for any candidate caught buying two forms. The public is requested to note that any candidate who indulges in double registration will be caught by our software and disqualified.

“This information is necessary for the public to know so that when such candidates are sanctioned, it will be understood. The board is not interested in the candidate’s money as being insinuated by certain group, who suggested to the board that such registration will enhance its revenue base.
