UTME: JAMB Candidates Now To Spend 2 Hours On Exam

Candidates sitting for this year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) would have to spend two hours
instead of three hours, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said.

This is according to the Registrar of JAMB, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, who stated this in Kaduna on Wednesday, during the opening ceremony of a
strategic planning retreat on the monitoring, supervision and evaluation
of 2017 UTME with the theme: “Inclusiveness and sensitisation of key external actors.”  
A total of 240,000 candidates
have so far registered for the examination which has been scheduled
for May 20, barely one week after the commencement of the sale of forms
which is expected to end on April 22.
The organisation said the reduction of hours was
in line with international best standards and practices where no
candidate is kept in an examination such as UTME for more than two
Prof. Oloyede said out of 13 commercial banks and
the Nigeria Postal Service that have signified interest in the sales of
the admission forms, only nine have paid for the number of application
documents they required in the first instance.
