JAMB Results Validity Has Now Been Extended To 3 Years By The Senate

The Nigerian Senate on Thursday, October 13, extended the validity period of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) to three years against the present one year.
The extension was sequel to the amendment of the Act establishing the JAMB and it scaled through third reading today. To this end, results obtained from the board by candidates seeking admission into universities are expected to last for three years. The Senate adopted the recommendation that the UTME examination should have a validity period of three years to reduce the financial burden on parents.

Read the statement below: 

“The Nigerian Senate just passed the amendment to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board’s Act #JAMBBill SB. 245 into law. In the amendment passed, the Senate strengthened the Board to allow the results of students in the annual examination be valid beyond that year. Chairman of the Senate Committee on Tertiary Education and TETFund, Senator Jibrin Barau while presenting the report of his committee on the #JAMBBill explained that the amendments will further strengthen the Admissions Board in its responsibilities. Senate President Bukola Saraki, in appreciating his distinguished colleagues for their work towards the passage of the bill commented that the new amendments will indeed bring financial relief to students as well as parents and reduce bottlenecks and corruption in the admission process.”
