Post-UTME tests screening begin Sept. 7-JAMB

The Post- Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination screening for the 2020 admission into universities, polytechnics and colleges of education will start from September 7 , 2020 , the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has said .

JAMB also announced the withholding of the results of candidates who sat for this year ’ s UTME at Nigerian Correctional Service Centres over suspected infractions.

The Registrar of JAMB , Prof. Ish – aq Oloyede , stated these after a consultative virtual meeting with Vice Chancellors, Rectors and Provosts of tertiary education institutions.

The virtual meeting reportedly attracted 488 participants from across all states in the country .

According to Oloyede , the shift from the earlier announced August 2 date was to accommodate candidates who will take this year ’ s Senior School Certificate Examination conducted by the West African Examination Council .

He said , “Presently as you are aware , WAEC starts the SSCE on August 17, it will go on till September 7 .

“ Similarly, on September 21 or thereabout , the National Business and Technical Education Board will commence its own examination that will go on till on October 15, and immediately after that , the National Examination Council starts on November 5 and will hold till November 18.

“ Rather than making candidates run ; particularly , when they will have to take their exams in different towns and rush to universities elsewhere for post – UTME ; like somebody rushing from Sokoto to Ibadan for post- UTME , we believe we should avoid that.

“ For the institutions which want to conduct post- UTME tests, it cannot be earlier than September 7 and it will be held twice — September 7 to October 4 — and then it will be held for the second time on November 18 to mop up those who are taking their school certificate examination . ”

While announcing the withholding of results of candidates who sat for 2020 UTME in prisons , he said , “ There are candidates who took exams in the prison yard that we know are not prisoners ; so we wrote to the correctional centres to explain how that happens , because we didn’ t want non – prisoners to take advantage of the concessions we give to inmates. ”
