The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, (JAMB), has set March 9-17 date for the commencement and termination for the 2018 UTME nationwide, with new prohibitions in place.

The Registrar of the board, Prof.

The Federal Government has issued queries to 42 universities for allegedly charging more than the N2,000 instructed by the Federal Ministry of Education to conduct their 2017 post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations.

JAMB boss said it had been envisaged that a heavy concentration in the purchase of the registration form would be in the last one week to closing date, stressing that in view of that, the mock examination would be held in the first week of February across the country.

He said, "We are unable to access our CBT centres because majority are in the universities and non teaching staff are on strike".

It seems that it only took one generation for that decision to be made, as Dark Souls Remastered has been officially announced. You can expect to die no matter where you are when the game hits the Switch on May 15th this year.

Other challenges according to the JAMB boss ranges from CBT centers which performed below expectations during registration and examination; extortion of candidates during profile / email creation; usage of CBT centre emails and telephone numbers for candidates; dualisation of biometric capturing to multiple persons thereby encouraging multiple registration; deliberate disruption of examination, usually through power outage, to extend examination time till night to pave way for malpractice, amongst others.

He said the figure was out of the 56,172 applicants who chose the university through the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry.

He said, "No candidates, examiners, invigilators will be allowed to enter the examination hall with wrist watches, pencils except HB pencils ...and cameras".

"There were incidences by candidates and even examination officials".

Oloyede said due to the criticisms that trailed the sale of entry for just one month in the past years, the board made a decision to allow it last for two months so that every willing candidate could purchase, fill and submit the form.

He added that the ban affects both candidates and examination officials. The reasons for this will be provided shortly.

Oloyede said that although JAMB projected for N14.691bn as its Internally Generated Revenue for 2018, N7.744bn would be used for overhead costs, while N2.683bn had been earmarked for capital projects.

"There is nothing wrong with post-UTME provided that our candidates are not extorted". He gave them two weeks and all of them are making refund now. Hence, the minister has put his feet down that all excess charges should be refunded.

"In one case where the university could not trace the affected students, the minister directed that the money should be paid to a non-religious orphanage".

"The candidates in that case could not be traced for a refund".
