Sale of the 2017 application form for entrance to Nigerian tertiary institutions will begin on March 20 and end on April 19. The exam itself will begin on May 6 and end on May 20.
The Joint Admissions Matriculation Board (JAMB), which made the announcement on Monday on its website, says the 2017 Unified Matriculation Tertiary Examinations candidates are expected to pay N5, 500 for the registration package which includes registration fees, reading text, syllabus and brochure.
“UTME 2017 exam starts May 6 to May 20, 2017 (excluding May 12, 2017 because of candidates sitting for WAEC’s Further Maths exam),” JAMB says. “For direct entry candidates, the application will be on sale from Sunday, April 23, 2017.”
JAMB had said it would organise an optional mock examination for interested candidates and urged candidates to be wary of fraudsters who were circulating fake application forms.
JAMB had also earlier announced that it had completed a joint timetable with the management of the West African Examinations Council and National Examination Council to avoid clashing examination dates.
The exam body is expected to name the banks or other places candidates will purchase the forms soon.
