Except for any last-minute changes of plans, the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), is expected to begin on Friday, March 9 and end on March 17.
The Head of Media and Public Relations of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Dr Fabian Benjamin also gave his assurance that the exams will go on as planned.
He stated this on the back of a previous statement he had made where he said that the non-teaching staff of universities were key stakeholders in this year’s UTME and their ongoing strike may upset the Mock exam.
“We are still hopeful that an amicable resolution of the crisis would be reached before the date of the examination.”
“The unions are our critical stakeholders and their absence would be felt if the issue is not resolved before Monday February 26.”
”We had prayed and work tirelessly to ensure that the strike was called off hence our continued shifting of the dates for the examination,” he had said on February 18.
With less than a week to the exam, the JAMB spokesman directed candidates to start printing their examination notification slip from Tuesday, March 6.
Benjamin said: “Candidates can now go ahead and print their examination notification slips from Tuesday.
“These candidates must ensure that these slips are printed before Friday, March 9 in order to farmiliarise themselves with the examination schedules as no form of excuse for missing the examination will be entertained.
“We want to warn that the board will not reschedule any examination for anybody and so any candidate that fails to adhere strictly to the examination schedule as stated in their slips should have himself or herself to blame.”
