The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says it will conduct its 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) between March 14 and April 4.
The JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, who disclosed this while hosting State Commissioners of Education on Monday, December 23, 2019, in Abuja, said the registrations for its mock examinations would hold between January 13 and February 1, 2020 while the mock examinations would hold on February 18, 2020.
He explained that the registration for the 2020 UTME and Direct Entry would also run simultaneously between January 13 and February 17, 2020.
According to him, the Board is bringing in the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC), as directed by the National Assembly and Federal Executive Council, to conduct the 2020 UTME.
He, therefore, urged prospective candidates to approach any NIMC enrollment centre to obtain the NIN to enable them register for the examinations.
The registrar also said the importance of a candidate registering with NIN was to eliminate multiple registrations which was a problem during the 2019 registrations.
He explained that the Board had put in place a Central Admission Processing System (CAPS) designed to prevent Institutions from unilaterally changing or proposing a candidate for admission into the programme or courses other than his/her chosen course.
