The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says the 2015 Unified Tertiary and Matriculation Examinations (UTME) will commence next week March 9, across the country. About 1.4 million registered candidates are expected to offer the examinations.
According to JAMB’s Public Relations Officer, Fabian Benjamin, “All the logistics for the examination have been put in place and the examination will start on March 9 across the 400 centres in the country.”
He explained to Vanguard that the examination will last for 10 days, adding that it will be rounded off on March 21.
“There are going to be breaks during the days, but the exams are going to run for 10 days,” he said.
The examinations will be computer-based as JAMB had canceled the paper-pencil test (PPT) and dual based test (DBT) that were earlier in use.
