The Head of JAMB Information and Media, Dr Fabian Benjamin, made this known to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.

Mr. Benjamin said the board’s decision came after a meeting where all issues and ones bordering on the admission process were taken into consideration.

According to him, the directive becomes necessary as the board intends to meet up with the academic calendar as earlier agreed.

“By implication, candidates who have gained admissions into various institutions and are yet to register or do not have admissions by January 25 should begin to make preparations for the 2018 UTME.

“The public must also note that the UTME results are valid for only one year and not three years as widely speculated.

“If changes are made on the validity, I assure you the board would communicate appropriately to the public.”

Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB has announced that universities that charged more than N2,000 from applicants for its post-UTME examination will be made to refund the excess payment.

JAMB: Universities that charge above N2,000 for post-UTME must refund excess to students

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, on Sunday, said it would partner with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to conduct public examination through Computer Based Test, CBT, for Nigerians abroad.

The examination board also said universities that charged more than N2,000 from applicants for its post-UTME examination will be made to refund the excess payment.

JAMB’s Head of Public Relations, Fabian Benjamin, made these known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, in Abuja.

Mr. Benjamin said that the collaboration was to enhance the conduct of Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, for foreign candidates in 2018.

He said 2017 UTME was conducted for foreign candidates on September 30 in Gambia, Saudi Arabia, United Kingdom, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Benin Republic, Ethiopia, South Africa and Cameroun.

According to him, although the conduct of the examination was not justifiable, in terms of monetary value, there is need for JAMB to collaborate, to promote growth in the education sector.

“We are already promoting CBT in line with international best practices; we have taken it to some countries in Africa, we need to do more to encourage the practice.

“We have even gone ahead to see how we can put some countries on the global map by conducting our public examination there through CBT.

 “What we want to do is to partner with the ministry to be able to key into the global technology revolution as part of our foreign policy.

“We must be able to maximise profit, especially from West African countries that we are offering assistance, through scholarship, to school in Nigeria.

“We cannot achieve much by looking at things from naira and kobo, but through diplomatic relations there will be adequate room to gain through conduct of examination abroad,” he said.

The head of public relations explained that foreign candidates sat for examination in one session based on local time of their various countries, adding that the questions were deployed from the Board’s headquarters.

He decried message on the social media that the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, had directed the refund of post UTME fee, describing the information as false and could create confusion in the public domain.

Mr. Benjamin urged the public to disregard the information, saying that institutions that had charged more than N2,000 would be asked to make refund of the excess.

He described as unfortunate a situation where some institutions could not adhere to the minister’ directive about the payment of post-UTME.
