Published

September 7, 2020 has been slated for the commencement of the 2020/2021 post-Unified Tertiary and Matriculation Examination screening.

The decision followed a meeting between JAMB, University Vice Chancellors and Provosts of higher institutions on Monday in Abuja.

Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, Registrar of JAMB disclosed the development to newsmen after the meeting, saying that prospective candidates should take note.

According to him, the adjustment in the date would offer students writing this year’s O’level exams to be screened even as the board had earlier issued a guideline for all tertiary institutions to begin their admission with effect from August 20.

He said, “Presently as you are aware, WAEC starts the Senior School Certificate Examination on August 17, it will go on till September 7.

“Similarly, on September 21 or thereabout, NABTEB will commence its examination that will go on till on the 15 of October, and immediately after that, NECO starts on the 5th and will hold till 18 of November.

“Rather than making candidates run, particularly, when they will have to write their school certificate exam in different towns and rush to university elsewhere for post-UTME, like somebody rushing from Sokoto to Ibadan for post-UTME, we believe as a custodian of the highest sector of the education system, we should avoid that.

“For those (institutions) who want to take post-UTME, that cannot be earlier than the 7th of September and it will be held twice – September 7 to October 4, and then it will be held for the second time on the 18 November to mop up those who are taking their school certificate examination.”
