2019 UTME: Latest JAMB News Update

JAMB Conducts Fresh UTME For Candidates

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Monday conducted a supplementary Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) for 490 candidates whose Computer-Based Test centres were earlier suspended due to malpractices and other infractions.

Concise News reports that the UTME was held in JAMB CBT centre in Kogo, Abuja, JAMB Bayelsa State office, Yenagoa and JAMB National Headquarters in Bwari, Abuja. The board says, in its weekly bulletin, that “it was expedient to suspend all examinations at centres earlier earmarked for the candidates based on the lack of capacity of the centres and involvement in examination infractions.”
