Important notice to Direct Entry candidates – UTME2017


Ahead of the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says that direct entry candidates will be required to sit for a school-based aptitude test and not UTME.

 JAMB Issues Important Notice For Direct Entry Candidates Head of Information at JAMB, Fabian Benjamin, on Monday, April 3, said: “Direct Entry candidates will attempt an aptitude test which is school-based. They are not sitting for the UTME. The test is from the universities.

 ”The new book we introduced will be used by Direct Entry candidates for the aptitude tests that will be conducted by the universities. Students with matriculation numbers of universities are not eligible to sit for the UTME.

If they are not satisfied with their chosen disciplines, they can ask for transfer.’’ Naij.com recalls that JAMB stated it was not going to extend the registration period, saying that before deadline every candidate will register.

The spokesman observed that some applicants were seeking extension of the UTME registration deadline due to irregularities in the ongoing registration process. According to him, it is wrong for any person to also think that there is inadequacy in the number of centres stipulated to register candidates for the UTME.
