See JAMB Admission Deadline for 2018/2019 Session All Institutions – 1st & 2nd Choice Here.
Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has released the deadline for 2017/2018 academic session admission exercise.
According to the JAMB’s Head of Media, Dr Fabian Benjamin, the board’s decision came at a meeting where all issues and ones bordering on the admission process were taken into consideration.
He said it was resolved that the academic calendar must be adhered to.
According to him, the directive becomes necessary as the board intends to meet up with the academic calendar as earlier agreed.
“By implication, candidates who have gained admissions into various institutions and are yet to register or do not have admissions by January 25 should begin to make preparations for the 2018 UTME.
“The public must also note that the UTME results are valid for only one year and not three years as widely speculated.
“If changes are made to the validity, I assure you the board would communicate appropriately to the public.”
Benjamin also noted that the sale of Direct Entry forms is ongoing while urging candidates who intend to apply to do so immediately as the sale of the DE forms ends on the same date with the UTME’s.
He, however, noted that candidates should ensure that they disclose at the point of obtaining e-pins the exact pins they are paying for, that is, Direct Entry or UTME as some unknowingly purchase Direct Entry instead of UTME and vice-versa.
