Polytechnics Post Utme form: For all the candidates who participated in the concluded Jamb, who also applied to Polytechnics and Universities this is to inform you about the latest news concerning when admission we begin. It has not really been easy during this COVID 19 lockdown.

The virtual meeting which attracted 488 participants from across all states in the country, was also attended by JAMB’s Director of Administration, Aliyu Muhammed; Director of Finance, Muktar Bello; Director of Information Communication Technology, Fabian Okoro, Director of Information, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, among others.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says the post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (post-UTME) screening for the 2020 admission processes will now begin not earlier than 7 September 2020 in universities, polytechnics and colleges of education in the country.

The board said the shift in the date of the admission process from the earlier announced 21 August, is to accommodate candidates who will be taking part in this year’s school-based Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE).

Registrar of JAMB, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, made this known on Monday after a consultative virtual meeting with vice-chancellors, rectors, and provosts of tertiary education institutions.

“The view of JAMB is that while we go on consulting at a point when it becomes necessary for the decision, we should all come together and take decisions. Presently as you are aware, WAEC starts the Senior School Certificate Examination on 17 August, it will go on till the 7th of September.

“Similarly, on the 21 of September or thereabout, NABTEB will commence its own examination that will go on till on the 15 of October, and immediately after that, NECO starts on the 5th and will hold till 18 of November.

“Rather than making candidates run, particularly, when they will have to write their school certificate exam in different towns and rush to university elsewhere for post-UTME, like somebody rushing from Sokoto to Ibadan t for post-UTME, we believe as a custodian of the highest sector of the education system, we should avoid that,” Oloyede said.
