The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has suspended the sale of the application forms for the 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME till further notice.


The latest development was revealed in a statement released on Tuesday and signed by the Board’s Head of Media, Dr. Fabian Benjamin.

Benjamin revealed that the sale of the application documents which was earlier scheduled to start November 22 has been postponed due to the publisher’s inability to print the required 1.8 million copies of the forms before the scheduled deadline.

He added: “This postponement was due to the delay in meeting agreed deadline by the publisher of the Compulsory Reading Text meant for prospective candidates for the 2018 UTME (Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations).

“The publisher had promised to deliver all the texts for the 2018 candidates on or before November 7 but as at close of work today, the publisher has not provided the 1.8 million copies required.

“This development has painfully forced the Board to shift the date from Wednesday, November 22 to a date to be announced soon.”

The Board’s Head of Media further added that the new date for the sale of the form to commence will be announced later.

He added: “All reforms and the process of registration have been made very friendly and easy for candidates desirous of applying for the 2018 exercise.

“The advertisement when out will explain step by step the processes of obtaining the application e-pins and registration.”
