Breaking: JAMB Proclaims New Date To Get started 2020 Admission Workout, Publish-UTME Screening

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has introduced a brand new date for the graduation of the 2020/2021 post- Unified Tertiary Matriculation Exam.

JAMB registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede introduced on Monday afternoon that the 2020/2021 post- Unified Tertiary Matriculation Exam screening will start on September 7.

This was once introduced on the finish of the assembly between JAMB and heads of all tertiary establishments within the nation.

As previous reported by way of Naija Information, the board famous that the transfer is to deal with scholars who’ve been not able to write down their O’stage examinations on account of the COVID-19 outbreak and will probably be taking off similar with WAEC assessments later in August.

The JAMB boss emphasised once more on Monday that the shift within the date of admission processes was once to permit scholars sitting for the 2020 O’ stage examinations performed by way of the West African Examinations Council, Nationwide Exam Council, and Nationwide Trade and Technical Exam Board download the desired O’ stage {qualifications}.

Oloyede mentioned: “The view of JAMB is that whilst we move on consulting at some extent when it turns into important for choice, we must all come in combination and take choice. At this time as you might be mindful, WAEC begins the Senior Faculty Certificates Exam on 17 August; it is going to move on until seventh of September.

“In a similar fashion, at the 21 of September or thereabout, NABTEB will start its personal exam that may move on until at the 15 of October and right away after that, NECO begins at the fifth and can hang until 18 of November.

“Reasonably than making applicants run, specifically, when they’ll have to write down their college certificates examination in several cities and rush to college in other places for post-UTME, like someone dashing from Sokoto to Ibadan for post-UTME, we consider as a custodian of the very best sector of the schooling machine, we must steer clear of that.”

The JAMB Registrar added that this yr’s post-UTME workout will probably be achieved in two levels so to accomodate all the ones writing the O’stage examinations.

“For the ones (establishments) who need to take post-UTME, that can’t be previous than the seventh of September and it is going to be held twice- 7 September to four October, after which it is going to be held for the second one time at the 18 November to mop up those that are taking their college certificates exam,” he said.
