2017 UTME: JAMB, NECO, WAEC, NABTEB Harmonise Examination Time-Table


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation
Board (JAMB) on Tuesday said it has
agreed on a harmonised time-table with
other examination bodies ahead of 2017
Unified Tertiary Matriculation
Examination (UTME).
The decision, the board said, would lead to
a hitch free examination.
The board at a brainstorming meeting with
the National Examination Council
(NECO), West African Examination
Council (WAEC) and National Business
and Technical Examination (NABTEB)
held at JAMB’s headquarters in Abuja
unanimously agreed to harmonise the
examination timetable because of the
candidates’ desire for qualitative tertiary
education.
The Spokesperson of JAMB, Dr. Fabian
Benjamin, in a statement late on Tuesday
night in Abuja, said the harmonised
examination timetable had put to rest
problems arising from overlapping of
examination dates which would have
disenfranchised a sizeable number of
candidates from writing the examination.
“At the end of the brainstorming session,
the bodies resolved that WAEC would
speak to all its authorities that from 2018,
between March and April, for a window of
two weeks be created where all other
examinations that have nothing to do with
Nigeria will be held so as to allow a
window for JAMB to conduct its
examination,” the statement said.
According to the statement, the
examination bodies agreed that for the
purpose of the 2017 UTME, JAMB would
shift its examinations to allow students face
WAEC, NECO and NABTEB.
“However, a 10-day window for JAMB’S
UTME has been created by all examination
bodies for JAMB to conduct its
examination. In view of this, JAMB will
soon announce the commencement of sale
of the 2017/2018 admission forms for
UTME and Direct Entry (DE).
“JAMB emphasises the fact that whoever is
presently collecting any money in the name
of JAMB form should be reported to the
police or any other security agency as
fraudster,” the statement added.
