The Joint Admission and Registration Board (JAMB) has announced the postponement of the 2017 UTME registration and the examination.

The JAMB Registrar disclosed this in a statement in Abuja.

According to him, the registration deadline has been shifted from April 19th to May 5th, 2017.

The 2017 UTME examination on the other hand has been shifted. It will now start from May 13 to May 20, 2017.

"Instead of the earlier announced April 19, the deadline for the sale of forms and registration will now extend to Friday, May 5, 2017. Consequently, the 2017 UTME has also been postponed to start on Saturday, May 13 – 20, 2017." The JAMB Boss stated.

It will be recalled that the House of Representative earlier directed JAMB to extend the deadline.

Myschool; The real exam has been shifted from 6th May. It will not begin from May 13 to May 20, 2017. This should be reflected on the photocards, when you go for a reprint at the stipulated time.

How will the jamb exam be done for just a week
08-Apr-2017 22:09:47 ·
SUNNYCHISO; Don't mind them. They'll still extend it. I wonder why something that even a toddler can understand, some adults won't. How on earth did they think it is possible to register, thumbprint and examine students in just less than 32 days. The system of education in this country is nothing to write home about.

Clueless pple..sebi he said he wont xtend it..
08-Apr-2017 22:12:13 ·
Ibn momoh; He never said he will not estend it, but rather relied d estention on impedimenting registeration circumstances, that will cause many prospective candidates not to register in or on time, before d registeration ends.Nevertheless, we should b mindful on how we react to unpleasantness.Insulting a man old enough to b ur father can never b justified for any reason or alibi.
08-Apr-2017 22:46:21 ·
PuertoSans; Insulting a man who's a complete moron can be justified.
This is how we allow stupidity to continue in the guise of giving respect.
The unintelligent-person should do his job if he doesn't want to be insulted.
09-Apr-2017 01:21:14 ·
Ibn momoh; How is he a moron or stupid man.How do u define both?For what he has done or what he is doing there is purely no moronicality or stupidity in it.D man is only trying to develope and improve d system for good and to prevent a national shameful and inglorious replica of what happened last year .D inability of a nation to organise and conduct exam meritocratically is an inastimable shame.Dis is what he is trying to dereplicate and all he gets is insult and abuse from us.I understand if we criticise him for what has just happened, but d question is do we ever expect success absent(without) cost.Infact, we should show happiness under d veil of our querulousness(annoyance), because d problematic reason for suspending d mock exam did not happen in d main exam.And now they can takle and solve that problem for smooth and hitch-free exam possibly or atleast prevent its reoccurrence.So u see, he still deserves praise for his intelligence of testing d new system before d main exam; he is not stupid or moronical as u branded him.Again, before i fall from presence, where is our respect and righteousness if we show impudency to an old man, because u think he has failed in his duty or becasuse of sth he did dat did not cost us our cherished and and highy protecting ambition of admission success.

Craig Duffy; hahhsaaha. .ah laf in Swahili...wah was he thinking? that most of us here ain't educated?.. lolzzzz,
10-Apr-2017 13:59:59 ·
PuertoSans; I'll reply you, but I strongly suggest you forget about writing JAMB this year and get an English tutor.

Anybody with an average understanding of computer systems knows that before you deploy any solution, it must be rigorously tested and the results of these tests must exceed the actual required performance or else the system is not deployed.
JAMB failed to test their systems before deployment and you're embarrassing yourself to defend their stupidity.
10-Apr-2017 15:47:16 ·
Craig Duffy; that's d spirit#
10-Apr-2017 16:05:01 ·
Ibn momoh; To puertosan Neither will i leave u unaswered.If u are so good in d language, what is holding u back from disclosing d grammatical mistakes i have made, along with d right corrections, "master"? U speak as if u know everything but u dont.What solution are u talking about?Do u know d problems jamb were addressing before they set d mock exam's date?Do u know if that problem that led to d postponement of d mock exam was not among them and it was unexpected, mm? Undisputably u dont.These are d questions u should have rigorously and repeatedly asked urself before u penned down that misplaced scathing of yours,"master". And as for ur saying that i should forget about writing jamb this year, because i dont understand English Language as much as u do, u have absolutely showed stupidity and vacuousness .Even if i dont know d language at all, a primary school child would tell u that one does not need English Language alone to pass jamb because there are 4 subjects and each is equally valued,"master". Oh! Before i forget, let me make this magnanimous offer.U know u are better than d members of jamb administrative board, and with sb like u around and known by us,they shouldn't b wasting time looking for more competent hands to manage d agency effectively.Why don't u allow us to call on jamb to incorporate u into d decision making house of d agency, "master"? CHARLATAN.

09-Apr-2017 05:13:07 ·
thestar; Please my dear kingsley, tell him well- and at thesame time, Puertosan, could be joking- you know we have so many clowns here in Nigeria, who aren't serious in what they say at times... I am beginning to understand the likes of Puertosan...

09-Apr-2017 15:11:41 ·
Ibn momoh; To puertosan Like i said before, u have just displayed foolishness and stupidity for thinking that one success in jamb completely depends on how much he knows English language, as if it is d only subject one would do.For ur understanding and to erase that foolish, wrong and erroneous thought from ur mind, English Language is equal to any of d other 3 subjects in marks distribution.So one can possibly pass jamb very well without it(English language) at all and even better than one who knows the subject very well. Not even wise afterall.I thought u were than this.

How do plan on passing JAMB without English?

You do realize all the questions are in English and you'd need to understand a question before you can attempt it?

English language is a mandatory subject for all candidates for a reason.
13-Apr-2017 01:17:48 ·
Ibn momoh; U so much believe that i cannot read and undestand, eh?How did i get to this level, what do i want, what am i doing here, how am i able to express myself and respond to issues, if i cannot read and understand? Please stop, u are unintentionally making a mockery of urself.Everyone knows that nobody can attain this height(d level of writing jamb) if he cannot read and understand.
