JAMB Admission Deadline for 2017/2018 Session Published…..
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced that the final deadline for the 2017/2018 academic session admission exercise will be on Thursday, 25th January, 2018.
The JAMB’s Head of Media and Publicity, Dr Fabian Benjamin, made this known at a meeting where all issues on the admission process were taken into consideration.
He said it was resolved that the academic calendar must be adhered to.
According to him, the directive becomes necessary as the board intends to meet up with the academic calendar as earlier agreed.
“By implication, candidates who have gained admissions into various institutions and are yet to register or do not have admissions by January 25 should begin to make preparations for the 2018 UTME.
“The public must also note that the UTME results are valid for only one year and not three years as widely speculated.
“If changes are made to the validity, I assure you the board would communicate appropriately to the public.”
The board had recently said that the UTME examinations would take place between March 9 and 17, while the mock exams would take place in the first week of February.
Benjamin also noted that the sale of Direct Entry forms is ongoing while urging candidates who intend to apply to do so immediately as the sale of the DE forms ends on the same date with the UTME’s.
