No Clash Between 2019 UTME and WAEC Timetable – JAMB

JAMB has assured candidates for the 2019 UTME that non of them would be denied the opportunity of writing the examination.

Dr Fabian Benjamin, Head of Public Relations, JAMB, gave the assurance in an interview with newsmen following fears concerning a clash in the timetable of West African Senior School Certificate Examination and UTME.

According to the timetable, WAEC students who are expected to write Animal Husbandry on April 11 by 9:00 a.m. are also expected to sit for the UTME on the same day.

At least 1.8 million candidates are expected to write this year’s UTME, while over one million students also registered for the May/June examinations of the WASSCE across the country.

Benjamin explained that WAEC starts with practicals and that it has so many sessions for its practicals.

“People have been talking about clashes between WAEC and JAMB timetable.

“We (JAMB) have met with the WAEC management and WAEC has just given us an assurance that there is no clash; that people don’t just understand the modus operandi of the timetable especially as it affects the practicals.

“The WAEC Practicals are in sections. There is no clash at all and that allegation of a clash in timetable is unfounded and baseless.

“WAEC has given us an assurance that it has accommodated all the fears of candidates. That the practical subjects are scheduled in sections in such a way that there would not be any clash (between UTME and WASCCE) at all.

“We want Nigerians to know that WAEC has actually accommodated the fears of candidates.

“This is as a result of the meeting between the Head of the National Office of WAEC, Mr Isaac Adenipekun and JAMB Registrar, Ishaq Oloyede.

“JAMB examination takes just about two hours, but what WAEC is saying is that candidates should go and be preparing for their examinations,’’ he said.
