JAMB sets new date for exams
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation (JAMB) has postponed the date set for its mock exams from Saturday, March 23, 2019 to Monday, April 1, 2019 for its 2019 mock examination.
JAMB reportedly took the step because of the supplementary elections which had been scheduled by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Benue, Plateau, Bauchi, Kano, Adamawa and Sokoto states.
The supplementary elections were fixed by INEC following the spate of inconclusive elections declared by INEC in six states.
A terse statement issued on Wednesday night by the spokesperson of JAMB, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, said candidates who had indicated interest in the mock examination at the point of registration and have since printed their mock examination notification slips need not print another one.
According to him, all the details on the slips remain the same, except the examination date which is now April 1 2019.
Benjamin said: “JAMB has also scheduled to conduct the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation examination from Thursday April 11 2019. Candidates are to begin the printing of the 2019 UTME notification slips from Tuesday April 2 2019.
“All candidates who registered for the 2019 UTME are to ensure that they print their examination notification slips before the day of the examination as no excuses would be entertained. The public should note that JAMB would not reschedule examination for any candidate.
“Candidates can print their slips anywhere. Nigerians would recall that JAMB had closed the sale of its UTME and Direct Entry application document on Thursday February 21 2019. At the close of the sale and subsequently close of registration portal, it was discovered that 41,063 candidates created profile and procured either  UTME or DE ePINS but were unable to complete their registration formalities after initiating the process.
“In view of this consideration JAMB has open the registration portal effective from Wednesday March 13 2019 for all candidates with either UTME or DE ePINS to complete their registration formalities. The portal would be closed on Friday March 15 2019 by 12 midnight.
“This opportunity is for only candidates who had created profile and procured UTME or DE ePINS before the close of registration portal as the sale of ePINS had since been closed. Please endeavour to register before Friday midnight if you are holding any of the ePINS (UTME/DE).”
