There’s been so much anticipation about the JAMB 2017 UTME Form especially as it seems to have been over delayed.
Students have continued to ask questions, a few have already fallen prey to scammers out there who sold fake JAMB registration forms to them. Parents and sponsors have also raised their concern about the delay in releasing the JAMB 2017 UTME Form.
Here is the latest information we have as regards the JAMB 2017 UTME Form.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is set to begin sales of the JAMB 2017 UTME Form very soon.
An agreement has already been reached between JAMB and other examination bodies in Nigeria to create a harmonized timetable so that JAMB would not be affected by the WAEC and NECO exams and vice versa.
A 10-day window for JAMB’S UTME has been created by all examination bodies for the exam body to conduct its examination.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), is set to commence of sale of the 2017/2018 admission forms for Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE).
After a meeting at the national headquarters of the Board in Abuja on Tuesday, January 24th, an agreement was reached with the National Examination Council (NECO), West African Examination Council (WAEC) and National Business and Technical Examination (NABTEB) to harmonize the timetable.
Dr. Fabian Benjamin, the head of media and information, said that the harmonized examination timetable, will solve problems arising from overlapping of examination dates, which has disenfranchised a lot of candidates and as such the JAMB 2017 UTME Form would soon be on sale.
“The bodies agreed that for the purpose of the 2017 UTME, JAMB will shift its examinations to allow students face WAEC, NECO and NABTEB,” he said.
However, prospective candidates for the JAMB 2017 UTME Form are advised to use the opportunity they have right now to make adequate preparations for the forthcoming examination as Prof Ishaq Oloyede, the registrar and chief executive of JAMB, has said that candidates, who wish to sit for the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, will take the examination under the surveillance of Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras.
The registrar while speaking during a briefing in Abuja said the measure was necessary and that it is aimed at preventing examination malpractice during the UTME.
