The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has disclosed the starting date for the much-awaiting post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (Post-UTME).

Brandnewsday gathers that the screening for the 2020 admission processes will begin on September 7 across universities, polytechnics and colleges of education.

JAMB explained why the Post-UTME was rescheduled from August 21 to September stating that it was to accommodate candidates taking part in the 2020 Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE).

Post-UTME Date

Meanwhile, this was made known by JAMB Registrar, Ishaq Oloyede, on Monday, after a virtual meeting with Vice Chancellors, Rectors, and Provosts of tertiary institutions.

Oloyede said: “Presently, as you are aware, WAEC starts the Senior School Certificate Examination on Aug. 17, it will go on till Sept. 7.  Similarly, on Sept. 2 or thereabout, NABTEB will commence its own examination that will go on till Oct. 15, and immediately after that, NECO starts from the 5th to Nov.18.

“Rather than making candidates run, particularly, when they will have to write their school certificate exam in different towns and rush to universities elsewhere for post-UTME, like somebody rushing from Sokoto to Ibadan for post-UTME, we believe as a custodian of the highest sector of the education system, we should avoid that.”

Speaking further, Oloyede stated that institutions whose post-UTME screening was mandatory for candidates would have to spread such exercise in two phases.

“For those institutions who want to take post-UTME, that cannot be earlier than the 7th of September and it will be held twice – from 7th September to 4th of October, and then it will be held for the second time on the 18th of November to mop up those who are taking their school certificate examination,” he added.
