jamb - 2017 UTME : Jamb, WAEC agree on timetable

Ahead of 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and other examination bodies in the country have agreed on a harmonized timetable to have a hitch-free examination.

This followed a meeting with managements of National Examination Council (NECO), West African Examination Council (WAEC) and National Business and Technical Examination (NABTEB) held at its headquarters in Abuja yesterday.

A statement issued by the Head of Media at JAMB, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, said the harmonised examination timetable has put to rest problems arising from overlapping of examination dates, which would have disenfranchised a sizeable number of candidates.

According to the statement, the examination bodies resolved that WAEC would speak to all its authorities that from 2018, between March and April, that a window of two weeks would 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.
