The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has introduced the beginning date for the post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (Publish-UTME).
The screening for the 2020 admission processes will begin on September 7 in universities, polytechnics and schools of schooling.
JAMB defined that the shift from August 21 was to accommodate candidates participating on this 12 months’s school-based Senior College Certificates Examination (SSCE).
Ishaq Oloyede, the Registrar, made this recognized on Monday, after a digital assembly with Vice Chancellors, Rectors, and Provosts of tertiary establishments.
He stated: “Presently as you’re conscious, WAEC begins the Senior College Certificates Examination on Aug. 17, it can go on until Sept. 7. Equally, on Sept. 2 or thereabout, NABTEB will begin its personal examination that may go on until Oct. 15, and instantly after that, NECO begins from the fifth to Nov.18.
“Reasonably than making candidates run, notably, once they should write their faculty certificates examination in several cities and rush to universities elsewhere for post-UTME, like anyone dashing from Sokoto to Ibadan for post-UTME, we imagine as a custodian of the best sector of the schooling system, we should always keep away from that.”
Oloyede added that establishments whose post-UTME screening was necessary for candidates must unfold such train in two phases.
“For these establishments who need to take post-UTME, that can not be sooner than the seventh of September and it will likely be held twice – from seventh September to 4th of October, after which it will likely be held for the second time on the 18th of November to mop up those that are taking their faculty certificates examination,” he stated.
