JAMB will not reschedule UTME for late candidates – Registrar


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said the examination body, will not reschedule exams for candidates who reported late for the mop-up examination.

JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, stated this while speaking to candidates sitting for the mop-up examination at the board’s Computer-Based Centre (CBT) in Bwari, Abuja.
He explained that the exam was a supplementary Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) being conducted in 170 centres across the country and the 85,000 candidates eligible have been notified.

“There is nothing you can do … we placed adverts in newspapers, sent e-mails and text messages and if you did not get it, it means that you were not invited for the exam.

“A bulk Short Message Service (SMS) was equally sent to your telephone numbers that you provided during the registration.

“We will not reschedule the exam for people who came late,” Oloyede said.
