JAMB Exam Date: The 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) scheduled to commence on March 16th, 2019. You should already know that the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has slated the JAMB registration commencement date for the 2019 JAMB UTME to be January 3rd, 2019.
The board’s Head, Media and Information, Dr Fabian Benjamin in an interview with NAN, said that over 700 centres have so far been accredited for the conduct of the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) scheduled to commence on March 16, 2019.
The registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Ishaq Oloyede, had also previously said that the 2019 general elections would not affect the board’s 2019/2020 examination. He made this remark while fielding questions from journalists shortly after delivering the 2018 Annual Sobo Sowemimo Lecture of the Abeokuta Club in Abeokuta.
Mr Oloyede said since the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), had given the dates of the elections, then the board would only need to adjust accordingly. “I don’t think there will be any need for a shift in the JAMB exam date because of the 2019 general elections. I believe INEC has done well by giving us a prior notice six months ago. They have given us the date of the elections. So we have no excuse not to have adjusted. We have adjusted appropriately,” he said.
Mr Oloyede decried the rate at which candidates, who were not qualified to write the examination applied for it, thereby, causing what he described as “unnecessary luggage” on the board.
He said that the examination body would adopt stiffer measures to check incidences of unqualified candidates from applying and writing the examination for the 2019/2020 admission exercise.
Mr Oloyede noted that JAMB would not allow anyone to take undue advantage over others, saying the board would not repeat the mistake it recorded in the last examination as regards this development.
