  • UTME form might be on sales from February 2017

Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB,  reached a compromise on a  unified  timetable with other examination bodies (WAEC, NECO &
NEBTEB) in Nigeria  to ensure smooth running of the 2017  Unified Tertiary Matriculation
Examination, UTME.

A compromise on harmonized timetable was reached on Tuesday at the end of a brainstorming meeting of the
Board with National Examination Council (NECO), West African Examination
Council (WAEC) and National Business and Technical Examination (NABTEB)
held at JAMB’s national headquarters, Abuja.

harmonised examination timetable has put to rest problems arising from
overlapping of examination dates, which would have disenfranchised a
sizeable number of candidates.
At the end of the brainstorming
session, the bodies resolved that WAEC would speak to all its
authorities that from 2018, between March and April, for a window of two
(2) weeks be created where all other examinations that have nothing to
do with Nigeria will be held so as to allow a window for JAMB to conduct
its examination.

The bodies agreed that for the purpose of the
2017 UTME, JAMB will shift its examinations to allow students face WAEC,

However, a ten-day window for JAMB’S UTME has
been created by all examination bodies for JAMB to conduct it’s
examination. In view of this, JAMB will soon announce the commencement
of sale of the 2017/2018 admission forms for UTME and Direct Entry, DE.
essence of the meeting was to continually find solutions to challenges
faced by candidates in the cause of their desire for tertiary education.

the board is using this opportunity to inform Nigerians that it has not
commenced the sales of its application documents. The forms will be out
as soon as all critical planning are concluded to ensure a smooth
examination in 2017.
