The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) yesterday put to rest speculation on when it will conduct the 2017 University and Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME).
The board disclosed that the examination would now hold in May 2017. Speaking in an interview with The Guardian in his office, JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede gave reasons for the shift in date from March when the Computer-Based Test (CBT) usually hold to May.
According to him: "Normally, we conduct our UTME examinations around March, but the result would be ready in about two or three days and we keep this. But when do we need the result, it is about July or August and that is why there is room for suspicion. If you go on the net, you will see people claiming that they can help people upgrade their results. The reason for this is that the results are left to lie fallow from March to July."
