Nigerian senate extends JAMB resultís validity to three years

The Senate on Thursday extended the validity of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination conducted by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board from one year to three years.


It also scrapped the conduct of post-UTME examinations by higher institutions for admission purposes.

If President Muhammadu Buhari assents to the bill and it becomes law, candidates with old results will, henceforth, be given preference over new UTME candidates in subsequent admission processes by tertiary institutions.

The validity extension and post-UTME scrapping were parts of the amendments made to the law establishing JAMB.

The Senate Committee on Tertiary Institutions and TETFUND, which presented its report on ďA Bill for An Act to Amend the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board Act and for Other Matters Connected Thereof, 2016 SB.245Ē to the chamber during Thursdayís plenary, said the purpose of the bill was to amend the JAMB Act to increase the validity period of JAMB examination from one academic year to three academic years.

The Senate had passed the bill for the second reading on June 1, 2016, before referring same to the committee.

The committee said, in considering the bill, it made reference to the contributions of the lawmakers regarding the financial hardship experienced yearly by parents and guardians who sponsor candidates for UTME.

Members of the Senate passed the bill unanimously.
