JAMB postpone sales of UTME forms

Date: 2017-11-22
THE Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has postponed the sales of next year’s unified tertiary matriculation examination forms.

The board had planned to begin the sale of the UTME form today.

JAMB’s Head of Media, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, in a statement yesterday in Abuja, blamed the postponement on failure of the publisher of the texts to be used for the UTME next year.

Dr. Benjamin said the publisher had promised to deliver all the texts for the 2018 candidates on or before on the 7th but failed to do so.

He said: "As at close of work today, the publisher had not provided the 1.8m copies required and this development painfully forced the Board to shift the date from Wednesday November 22, 2017 to a date to be announced soon.

“The Board regrets all inconveniences occasioned by this postponement as it is working round the clock to announce a new date soon.

"Please note that all arrangements have been concluded for the sale of the application documents and the conduct of the examination."
