JAMB announces new date for 2022 UTME

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has given a new date for the conduction of the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

In its weekly bulletin released on Monday, January 3, the UTME initially scheduled for April 20 to 30,  would now hold as from Friday, May 6 to Monday, May 16. Similarly, the mock-UTME exercise earlier scheduled for April 2, would now be held on April 16.

However, JAMB said the date for the commencement of the sale of the 2022 UTME/DE application forms fixed for February 12 to March 19 still remains.

According to JAMB, the reason for this new development is to accommodate the interest of candidates who would be sitting for the UTME and others external examinations in April to ensure they are not caught dates conflict that could make them missing any of their examinations.

The board also said it has introduced Computer Studies and Physical and Health Education as part of  its UTME subjects for 2022. It also said it would adopt an optional USSD code to enable candidates register for the 2022 UTME without stress or difficulty.
