2020 admissions: JAMB announces start date for post UTME

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has announced the start date for the post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (Post-UTME).

The screening for the 2020 admission processes will commence on September 7 in universities, polytechnics and colleges of education.

JAMB explained that the shift from August 21 was to accommodate candidates taking part in this year’s school-based Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE).

Ishaq Oloyede, the Registrar, made this known on Monday, after a virtual meeting with Vice Chancellors, Rectors, and Provosts of tertiary institutions.

He said: “Presently as you are aware, WAEC starts the Senior School Certificate Examination on Aug. 17, it will go on till Sept. 7. Similarly, on Sept. 2 or thereabout, NABTEB will commence its own examination that will go on till Oct. 15, and immediately after that, NECO starts from the 5th to Nov.18.

“Rather than making candidates run, particularly, when they will have to write their school certificate exam in different towns and rush to universities elsewhere for post-UTME, like somebody rushing from Sokoto to Ibadan for post-UTME, we believe as a custodian of the highest sector of the education system, we should avoid that.”
