According to the Registrar of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB, Prof. Oloyede has disclosed that 1.237 million candidates have submitted their application already for the 2017 UTME.
The registrar also said,  that over 678 centres across Nigeria against the last year’s figure of 650 CBT centres, would be put to use with estimated 1.5million candidates for the examination.
According to him he said, “Though there was collaboration with Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)-producing Company to air lift candidates in riverine areas to their CBT centres.”
He also talked about the reason for capturing candidates ten fingers in biometrics registration.
He said, “It is to forestall incidence of multiple registration as noticed with previous year’s registrations.”
