JAMB 2017 Examinations To Hold In May

17 Feb

The Joint Admission and Matriculation
Board (JAMB) have announced that the
2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation
Examination (UTME) will hold in May
This was made known by the JAMB
spokesperson, Fabian Benjamin, through
the Board’s Twitter handle @jambhq
According to him, actual dates will be
announced soon. He also advised
candidates to beware of false dates and
“2017 UTME is scheduled to hold in May
2017. Actual dates will be announced
soon. Beware of false dates and
fraudsters,” he said.
Meanwhile, JAMB registrar, Prof. Ishaq
Oloyede has explained why an unusual
delay has preceded the sales of
application forms.
He said the ongoing switch-over in the
major thrust of the sale of form which is
the scratch card to direct payment into
the Treasury Single Account (TSA) was
responsible for the delay.
Oloyede said: “We are changing the
major trust of the sale which is the
scratch card. Candidates used to buy
scratch cards to access the forms online
and that has been abused thoroughly.
“What we want to do is for students to
pay directly to government coffers and
we are working out the process of doing
so to avoid the type of abuse that it has
been subjected to. So, we want to sell
directly and to make sure that
candidates pay into TSA account.”
