The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, on Monday, announced its plans to begin sale of forms for the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME.

Dr Fabian Benjamin, JAMB’s Head of Public Relations made this known on Monday in Bwari.

Benjamin said the date was fixed following an agreement that was reached on the harmonization of the examination timetable at a meeting with other exam bodies on Jan. 24. “We will begin the sale of the admission forms on March 20, while UTME is scheduled to hold in May. “We are ready to commence the sales of the 2017/2018 admission forms for UTME and Direct Entry forms on the said date,’’ he said.

According to the board, registration fee for UTME 2017 is N5, 500.
The sale of forms will close on Wednesday, April 19.
The board also said that the examination will hold between May 6 and 20.
Earlier in February, the Registrar of JAMB, Ishaq Oloyede, had said that 1.7 million candidates were expected to sit for the exam this year.

“We are expecting 1.7 million candidates to sit for the UTME this year and we want to make sure we satisfy these candidates within a week or thereabouts,” the JAMB boss had said.
