The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has changed the dates of its 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry Examination dates.
This was disclosed in its weekly bulletin, released by its Director of Public Relations, Dr Fabian Benjamin, and made available to newsmen in Abuja on Monday.
The 2022 UTME which was earlier scheduled for 20th to 30th April 2022 has now been rescheduled for Friday, May 6th to Monday, May 16th 2022, while the mock examination exercise scheduled for April 2nd, would now be held on April 16th 2022.
However, it has been confirmed that there is no change to the commencement date for sales of forms.
JAMB Updates UTME Examination Dates
The statement read, “The date for the commencement of sale of the 2022 UTME/DE application document which was slated to start from Feb. 12 to March 19 remains as stated earlier.
“In its bid to accommodate some exigencies, which ultimate goals are to ensure maximal benefits to potential candidates, JAMB has made adjustments to its examination timelines.
“Given the breakdown of the adjusted timelines, the 2022 UTME would be held from Friday, May 6 to Monday, May 16, while the mock exercise, earlier scheduled for April 2, would now be held on April 16, for candidates who registered early and indicated their willingness to sit the Mock UTME.
“This review, as approved by management, is to ensure that the candidates who would be sitting the examination and others are not denied the opportunity to express themselves in other public examinations without forfeiting any examination.”
