JAMB Issues Deadline For Candidates To Print Exam Slips


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) says candidates for the 2018 UTME have until Friday, March 9th to print their examination notification slip.

According to Fabian Benjamin, JAMB’s head of media, who made the disclosure on Sunday, candidates can start printing their examination slips as from Tuesday, March 6.

“We have successfully conducted the mock Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) on Monday, February 26, and based on that, we can confidently say, we are good to go,” he said.


“The mock UTME was to expose the candidates to the process as well as test the level of preparedness of the various centres.

“Candidates can now go ahead and print their examination notification slips from Tuesday.

“These candidates must ensure that these slips are printed before Friday, March 9, in order to familiarise themselves with the examination schedules as no form of excuse for missing the examination, will be entertained.


“We want to warn that the board will not reschedule any examination for anybody and so any candidate that fails to adhere strictly to the examination schedule as stated in their slips should have himself or herself to blame.”

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has warned candidates not to go to their respective centres with prohibited items such as telephones, wristwatches, pens, and other electronic devices.
