The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has fixed dates for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) for 2018.
JAMB Registrar, Prof Ishaq Oloyede said at a Stakeholders’ Meeting on Tuesday that the exam will hold between March 9 and 17, 2018.
He added that a mock examination which will precede the UTME, will now hold in the first week of February, instead of the January 22 to 24 dates earlier given.
Oloyede said the change of dates was due to ongoing strike by non-teaching staff of universities.
He added that the board was unable to access most of its Computer-Based Testing (CBT) centres as they are located within the universities.
The JAMB boss said 10 percent of prospective candidates, about 283,319, have purchased the examination form and have duly registered.
