Some candidates registering for the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) have expressed satisfaction with the easy process of the exercise.

Some of the candidates, who spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, on Monday in Ibadan, said the registration had been seamless.

One of the candidates, Temiloluwa Erogbogbo, said the registration process was not difficult at all.

“Once you can generate your code, just buy your form and fill it out immediately.

“Usually you can fill it from home; like my sister, she did hers at home and has been sent her code from our house.

“But I am just getting mine because I am not very sure that I would register today or tomorrow but I just got my code too,” she said.

Also, her sister, Ebunoluwa Erogbogbo, who had initiated the registration process on Sunday, said they went to one of the JAMB-accredited centres to complete the registration process.

Another candidate, Adebisi Raheem, who said the registration process was not difficult, lamented having to repeat writing UTME for the third time.

“The first one, I scored 200 plus, as well as the second attempt; I wanted to study medicine but changed to nursing owing to the cut-off mark.

“I have registered for this year already and it was easy. I paid N6,200 without mock but those registering and would like to do mock are paying N7,700,” Raheem said.

Speaking at the JAMB Ibadan Zonal Office, the zonal coordinator, Olugbenga Akintola, said the examination body had made adequate arrangements for a seamless registration process.

Akintola said that there had been no bombardment of the agency’s system, adding that some of the candidates had already bought their PINs some days ago.

He said there had been no complaints from any centres regarding any glitch in the registration process
