The 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) has commenced in the 700 Computer Based Test (CBT) centers across the nation, with some recording technical glitches.

JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyode has in response to the development called for calm on the part of candidates.

Oloyode made the appeal while fielding questions from newsmen after monitoring the exam in Kogo-Bwari, Abuja.

He said so far, the UTME had been going on smoothly as only one centre had been reported to have encountered issues.

“We appeal to the public to understand this. Some centres will fail. I have heard of only one centre that has failed today.

“By the end of today, I expect about 10 per cent of the centres to have one problem or the other because we know the level of development in different parts of the country”, the Registrar said.

In Lagos however, newsmen who monitored the examination reported that technical hitches occurred at the Wisdom House, Yaya Abatan, Ogba and one other CBT centers early in the day.

Some candidates claimed that the hitches led to some of them being logged out before the expected time.

On his part, the JAMB Boss said, “we are not encouraging this, but when it happens, please do not disrupt others. It is important to note that when a session fails because of a problem, you cannot bring those candidates to do session two, they will have to step aside, and the headquarters will have to be contacted”.

No fewer than 1.9 million candidates registered for the computer-based examination nationwide.

The examination which started on Friday, April 19, 2024 will run through to Monday, April 29, 2024.
