The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has concluded the sale of 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) forms, recording over 1.7 million applications.
The exams will begin on Saturday May 13, 2017.
This is contained in a statement on Sunday by JAMB spokesman, Fabian Benjamin.
The Board urged Nigerians to have trust in its processes as they are meant to enhance productivity, eliminate examination malpractice and promote transparency to an unprecedented level.
It reads further: “We registered a number that has never been done in the entire 39 years of the existence of JAMB within a time frame Nigerians were sceptical about.
“The highest we have ever had was 1.5 million, this is record breaking. We will look at the system so far and make adjustments where necessary to ensure a full proof process of registration and examination.
“We are always sure of our systems and will continue to expand our frontiers of thinking to transform the Board to an agency that Nigerians will be proud of.
“JAMB wishes to state clearly that it will continue to be very open in all its activities and ensure inclusiveness even in the areas of its finances.
