The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) have made it known to the general public that Saturday 1st July, 2017, will be set aside to conduct supplementary Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) for 85,000 candidates.

The board’s Head, Media and Information, Mr. Fabian Benjamin, announced the date in a statement issued on Tuesday 20th June, 2017, in Abuja.

Mr. Fabian said that the examination, which is for candidates who registered late and those with related issues, will be spread across some Computer Based Testing (CBT) centres.

“Affected candidates have been notified via text messages.

“Affected candidates are advised to check their e-mail as well as their JAMB profile for the schedule of their examination or visit JAMB website for their status.

According to him, candidates will soon be requested to print their e-slip for details such as date, venue and time of the examination.

The board noted that candidates, who are not listed for the supplementary, would not be communicated with; while those, whose results are withheld, would reflect in their profiles, which have been updated.

The board also advised rescheduled candidates to comport themselves and be of good behaviour to avoid the circumstance that earlier necessitated the cancellation of their previous examination.

“Many of the candidates rescheduled for this examination enjoy this privilege because of the board’s principles of equality and inclusiveness.
