COVID-19 ERA SERVICES: JAMB RELAXES SERVICES TO COVER PRE 2020 SERVICES

To ensure that  those candidates  who took the UTME prior to 2020 or applied through DE, and who require certain corrections of their processes are accommodated, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has lifted the suspension earlier placed on processes covering those years. As you may be aware, the need to preventovercrowding at its Computer-Based Test Centres and other partner facilities, inline with extant COVID -19 protocols issued by relevant agencies, led it to allow candidates to seek corrections and other

processes only through the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME)or Direct Entry(DE) platforms. This measure had the intended effect of limiting the number of persons visiting the centres.As government continues to ease the lockdown leading to the resumption of students in exit classes, the number of 2020 UTME candidates needing one service or another at the various centres has drastically gone down, thus, the Board has decided to open up its platforms to accommodate more requests especially from previous years.

Furthermore,as the Board is desirous of sustaining compliance with COVID-19 protocols, it maintains that 2020 UTME candidates desirous of these services will only be attended to under a regulated formate which would allow our offices to attend to only a specific number of candidates per day.The Board urges all State offices to ensure that all clients comply with all existing COVID -19 protocol
