The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has fixed February 6, as deadline for the sale of registration form for this year’s unified tertiary matriculation examination (UTME).
JAMB Registrar Prof. Is-haq Oloyede said this at a meeting on strategic planning, supervision and evaluation of the conduct of 2018 unified tertiary matriculation examination (UTME) in Abuja yesterday.
He said only 283,319 candidates had registered for the examination.
Prof. Oloyede said its mock examination slated for January 22 would now hold in first week of February.
He blamed the shift of the mock examination on the strike embarked on by members of NASU, noting that the strike made the CBT centres in affected tertiary institutions not available for accreditation.
The board also fixed March 9 to17 for the conduct of the UTME in 620 computer based test centres across the country.
