The Joint Admission and Registration Board (JAMB) has extended the registration date for the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME).
The board extended the deadline for sale of forms and registration for the exams from the earlier announced April 19 to May 5.
Consequently, the exam body also postponed the 2017 UMTE from May 13 to May 20.
The Mock Examination earlier slated for Saturday, had earlier been put on hold.
The Board said the postponement of the mock was due to failure from its technical partners.
The registrar Prof Is-haq Oloyede had made the announcement about the exams at a meeting with ‘internal stakeholders’ in Abuja on Thursday, April 6 but today things changed. Oloyede said the mock exams which had been expected to take place nationwide were meant to prepare candidates for the real exams. Only candidates that paid for the mock test were eligible to sit, he said.
