JAMB announces 2020 UTME dates

JAMB Registrar, Ishaq Oloyede

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has proposed dates for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

The board proposed 14th March to 4th April, 2020, for the exams.

The board also fixed 18th February, 2020, for its mock examination which usually comes before the main UTME examinations.

Mock examinations are optional for candidates.

JAMB registrar, Ishaq Oloyede, made this announcement during a meeting between JAMB and commissioners for education in Abuja.

A statement sent to EduCeleb.com on Monday by JAMB spokesperson Fabian Benjamin contains these details.

Oloyede, a professor, said registration of UTME and Direct Entry students will hold between on 13th January and 17th February, 2020, while mock registration will be from 13th January to 1st February, 2020.

All exams are written at accredited Computer-Based Test centres across Nigeria.

The registrar also said the board uses ‘ticketing system’ where a candidate or anybody desiring the board’s services can send their complaint(s) and responses are given within 24 hours.

He said, candidates do not need to travel to JAMB offices to access certain services.

“It has a tracking number that is issued once a ticket is raised. If not attended to, the number can be used as evidence to track the officer scheduled who would be sanctioned. The system is designed to eliminate any stress associated with accessing the Board’s services,” he said.
