JAMB made the announcement on Monday, January 31, 2022.
TheFact Nigeria gathered that some of the dates on the previous examination timeline were clashing with other examinations the potential candidates were meant to sit for.
Given the breakdown of the adjusted
timelines, the Board disclosed that the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation
Examination(UTME) would be held from
Friday, 6th to Monday, 16th May 2022.
While the Mock-UTME exercise earlier scheduled for 2nd April 2022 would now be held on 16th April 2022, for candidates who registered early and indicated their willingness to sit the Mock UTME.
The date for the commencement of sale of the 2022 UTME/DE application document which was slated to start from 12th February to 19th March 2022 remains as stated earlier.
The Board further disclosed that the review was approved by management, to ensure that the candidates who would be sitting the examination and others were not denied the opportunity to express themselves in other public examinations without forfeiting any examination.
The Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, while apprising his Management team on the
compelling need for the adjustments,
“As a responsive organisation, the
interests of candidates and the general
public alike would continue to shape our
actions. In addition, the inputs of critical
components of the society were sorted
and factored into the planning process”, he explained.
