6 Things That Will Happen Jamb 2017 That Has Not Happen Before

By | On March 21, 2017 (6 months ago)

The Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) has made
some major changes in the Unified Tertiary Matriculation
Examinations (UTME) for 2017.
AIT News brought you some updates on the examination
earlier. More adjustments have however been made, and these
are some of the things that will happen this year, that have
never happened before:
1. No awaiting result
JAMB has announced that candidates who have not received
their Olevel results will not be able to apply or secure
admission in higher institutions.
In a statement released on Tuesday, February 28, the
examination body said it was part of its restructuring plan for
2. Fourth Choice
JAMB has also introduced a fourth choice of school option for
candidates but would only be able to select only one
government school while filling out their forms online.
3. No choosing of public university
The following was also announced: The new registration
platform will now be first choice, second choice, third choice
and fourth choice and not most preferred, preferred etc as it
Candidates first choice can be a College, University, Innovative
Enterprises Institutions or Polytechnic/Monotechnic. However, if
a candidate makes a Public University his first choice, he will
not have any public University to choose for 2nd, 3rd and 4th
He will have on the remaining three choices, a College, a
Polytechnic, Private University and IEIS. However, candidates
for the 2017 UTME can now select NCE (College) or ND
(Polytechnic/ Monotechnic) as their 1st choice up to 3rd
choice and the 4th IEI.
They can select the IEI (Innovative Enterprise Institution, ND) as
their 1st choice up to the 4th choice, but can only pick a public
university once.
4. JAMB form sold late
The organizers of the major examinations in the country,
including JAMB met to avoid a clash in schedules and in order
to have a harmonized timetable.
An agreement was reached at the national headquarters of the
Board in Abuja on Tuesday, January 24, after a meeting with
National Examination Council (NECO), West African Examination
Council (WAEC) and National Business and Technical
Examination (NABTEB) to harmonize the timetable.
This is one reason the registration is yet to begin.
5. Mock UTME
While speaking the body also announced that plans were in
place for a mock UTME and this might explain the delay in
beginning the sales of the examination forms. So if you are
preparing, start your preparations now, so you can do well in
both the mock and the real deal.
6. No scratch card
Speaking on the issue of scratch card, the registrar explained
that one reason for the delay was due to issues the board had
with sale of scratch cards.
He said that whereas candidates used to buy scratch cards to
access the forms online previously, they planned to cancel that
since it had been abused thoroughly.
According to Daily Trust, he said: What we want to do is for
students to pay directly to government coffers and we are
working out the process of doing so to avoid the type of abuse
that it has been subjected to.
So, we want to sell directly and to make sure that candidates
pay into TSA account. We have cases of students saying their
scratch cards got burnt, others saying their scratch cards were
swallowed by snakes or lost in an accident
