JAMB ordered all institutions to conclude the 2017 Admission Processes on or before 25th January 2018. Many schools complied with the admission deadline.
This decision was reached after a meeting held, by the board, with stakeholders, on issues concerning admission processes, and the need to reconcile the academic calendar.
According to the Board’s Head of Media, Fabian Benjamin, “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”.
Mr. Fabian also pointed out that UTME results are currently valid for only 1 year, and the board will inform candidates if there is any decision to extend the result validity.
The 2018 UTME held between March 9 and 17, while the mock exams took place in the first week of February. Candidates can start practising freely for UTME by clicking here
Please note that the sale of Direct Entry (DE) forms are also on-going and would end on the same date UTME Forms will end (6th February 2018). The DE forms can be obtained using the same process as the UTME forms.
Candidates are to ensure they declare what exam (UTME or DE) they are registering for at the accredited CBT centres, to avoid mixing up their registration.
