The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, on Monday finally announced the date for the commencement of th registration for the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, and the Direct Entry, DE, examination.
The board made the disclosure in its weekly bulletin released by its Director of Public Relations, Dr Fabian Benjamin, and made available to The PUNCH in Abuja.
In the timeline of events attached to the bulletin, the board announced that the “UTME/DE registration starts 12th February 2022 and ends 19th March 2022. Mock examination holds on 20th April 2022. UTME holds from 20th to 30th April 2022”.
He also disclosed that the UTME will take place between April 20 and 30.
This year’s exam is coming against the backdrop of several new initiatives introduced by the board.
JAMB had earlier changed its literature texts for four language-related subjects.
The board also announced that it has taken over the collection of the N700 registration fee from CBT centres.
Earlier, the board had warned prospective applicants to disregard fraudsters claiming the UTME/DE forms are already out.
“For the avoidance of doubt, any information in circulation purporting to have emanated from the Board to the effect that the sale of the 2022 UTME and DE forms has commenced is not only fraudulent but is a calculated attempt by mischief makers to create unnecessary panic among prospective candidates for their own selfish ends,” it had said.
