The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB has readjusted the dates for the conduct of the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME.
JAMB disclosed the new dates in its weekly bulletin released on Monday, January 31, saying that the UTME exercise initially scheduled for April 20 to 30, would now hold from Friday, May 6 to Monday, May 16. JAMB also said that the mock-UTME exercise earlier scheduled for April 2, would now hold on April 16.
The board, however, said the rescheduling of the exam dates would not affect the sale of the 2022 UTME/DE application forms fixed for February 12 to March 19. The date for the sale of the forms remains unchanged.
Giving reason for the adjustment of the 2022 UTME dates, JAMB in the release, said that it was meant to accommodate the interest of candidates who would be sitting for the UTME and other external examinations in April to ensure they were not caught in a conflict of dates that could see them missing any of their examinations.
Besides the change of exam dates, it has been earlier reported that JAMB has also introduced Computer Studies and Physical and Health Education as part of its UTME subjects for 2022. It also said it would adopt an optional USSD code to enable candidates seamlessly register for the 2022 UTME without much stress or difficulty.
