Like you must have known already, the official commencement date of the 2017 UTME registration has been announced.
The sales of registration form will officially commence on March 20th, 2017 and end on April 19th, 2017 while the registration on JAMB’s portal ends on April 22nd, 2017.
The UTME itself begins May 6th, 2017. That’s exactly 2 weeks after closure of registration portal.
Apparently, JAMB has altered the timeline associated with the whole process.
In previous years, UTME sales of form and registration usually lasts for 3-5 months and the examination comes up like a month or two afterwards.
Now, we are witnessing something out of the usual. 1 month for JAMB registration and UTME commencement exactly 2 weeks after registration deadline.
How this will ultimately affect the performance of candidates and the outcome of 2017 UTME results is what we will wait to see.
Meanwhile, we would like to get your opinion on this. Do you think it is a step in the right direction and will this in any way affect candidates?
