Have you ever wondered the number of candidates who applied for Jamb 2020? Worry no more because I’m about to reveal how many Persons Registered this year’s Joint Admission And Matriculation Board Computer-Based Testing (Jamb CBT).
JAMB has reported that over 1.9 million candidates have registered to write the 2020 UTME so far. This is the highest in JAMB history. This was made known by Dr Fabian Benjamin, the board’s head of Media and Information, as JAMB prepares to close registration by Midnight of 17th Feb, 2020.
The board also said the closing date for the registration remained February 17 and charged prospective candidates not yet registered to take advantage of the remaining days to do so.
The number of candidates who applied for Jamb 2020 is much compared to Jamb 2018 applicants while more candidates registered Jamb 2017 than Jamb 2018.
The Registrar of the Board, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, disclosed to newsmen in Abuja that the number of candidates who registered Jamb 2017 were more than those who registered Jamb 2018.
According to him, a total number of 1,662,762 candidates registered for the 2018 UTME, within a period of two months, as against a total of 1,718,425 candidates who registered within one month in 2017.
Now that you know the number of candidates you are competing with, it is time to intensify your preparations. You may want to click here for how to prepare and pass Jamb within two weeks.
