  • Sokoto state: 13,456 candidates
  • Zamfara state: 10,077 candidates

Also, this year’s JAMB saw a drop in the number of applicants. A total of 1.6 million candidates approx. applied for this year’s UTME, compared to 1.7 million candidates last year.

JAMB has attributed this decline to improvements in system which have helped to curtail certain irregularities like multiple registrations by candidates.
