See when the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) registration for 2023 will begin.
It is not unthinkable that numerous questions about the UTME registration have started coming in. A lot of persons have been asking to know when the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) registration will start.
People are really interested in registering the UTME on time to avoid late registration and its consequences.
Usually, once the UTME registration begins every year, they’re a lot of challenges encountered by applicants which most times lead to the extension of the closing date for registration. And sometimes, some interested applicants may not be opportune to register for that year.
Also, considering the limited number of examination centres available for each state in Nigeria, late registration does warrant that some candidates will be posted to write their examination outside their state of origin, sometimes, even across their region.
This is usually tedious but they have no option of changing their examination centres. As a result, they have to go to wherever they are posted to, to ensure that they write their examination.
The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) had announced that registration for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and the Direct Entry (DE) will take place in 700 Computer–Based Test (CBT) Centres nationwide will commence by January 14, 2023.
