The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has released new dates for the conduct of the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
JAMB in its weekly bulletin announced that the UTME exercise scheduled earlier for April 20 to 30, will be held from Friday, May 6 to Monday, May 16.
It also disclosed that 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 remains.
The board noted that the adjustments on the timetable were meant to accommodate the interest of candidates sitting for the UTME and other external examinations in April.
Meanwhile, the board has introduced Computer Studies and Physical and Health Education as part of its UTME subjects for 2022.
It also adopted an optional USSD code to enable candidates to seamlessly register for the 2022 UTME without much stress or difficulty.
