JAMB Announces 2017 Admission Deadline, Speaks On Validity of UTME Results

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has directed all  institutions to end their 2017 admission by January 25, 2018.

This was disclosed by the Head of Media, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, during an interview with newsmen.  According to him, candidates who have gained admissions into various institutions and are yet to register or do not have admissions by January 25 should begin to make preparations to purchase the 2018 UTME form.

Dr Benjamin equally emphasized that the UTME results are valid for only one year and not three years as widely rumored.

He however said that if changes are made on the validity of UTME results, the board will communicate that to the public.

He further reiterate that the UTME examinations would take place between March 9 and 17, while the mock exams would take place in the first week of February and advised candidates who wish to purchase the UTME and Direct Entry Form to do so before the deadline which is February 6th, 2018. He confirmed that both the UTME and Direct Entry Forms will ends on the same date.

He advised candidates to ensure that they disclose, at the point of obtaining e-pins, the exact pins they are paying for, that is, Direct Entry or UTME as some unknowingly purchase Direct Entry instead of UTME and vice-versa.
