The Joint Matriculation and Examination Board (JAMB) has written to all heads of institution to reschedule date for the commencement of Post UTME screening and admission as a result of NECO examination and security challenges of the country. A letter that was issued by the board’s Registrar via the Director Admissions, Dr Halilu Bakori Mohammed reads below;
Kindly refer to the agreement reached at the meeting held between the JAMB Registrar and at Heads of Tertiary Institutions in Nigeria on 10th of August, 2020. You will recall that it was resolved that unless where extremely necessary, all Post UTME screenings were to be held after the 18th of November when NRCO examinations would have been concluded
It has however come to the knowledge of the Board that NECO has postponed one of its examination which may eventually affect the release of results, and these results are expected to be considered in the screening. In addition, when a new date is decided to come up immediately after the 18th of November. Added to this challenge is the current security situation in the country.
In view of the foregoing, the Board advises all Heads of Institutions, and especially the public situations, who had earlier scheduled their Post UTME to come up immediately after 18th November to kindly suspend the plan to a later date to be decided after the conclusion of NECO examinations.
This will give all candidates equal opportunity to attend the screening for fairness and justice. Please accept the assurances of the highest regards of the Registrar
