JAMB to postpones 2019 exam date

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board is considering a postponement of this year’s entrance examination into higher institutions.

The board also announced a postponement of the mock examination earlier scheduled for February 23.

The postponement of the mock examination is due to the presidential and parliamentary elections which will hold the same day.

The elections were postponed from February 16. State elections were also postponed from March 2 to 9.

No new date has been fixed for the mock examination.

Speaking on Wednesday evening in a phone interview, the JAMB spokesperson, Fabian Benjamin, said the scheduled date for the mock examination will be communicated soon.

”A new date for the mock examination will be announced by the management of the board shortly,” he said.

When asked if the date for the main examination which was slated for March 16 to 23 has been shifted, Mr Benjamin said the board is consulting and will inform the public of any new development. He said the elections may, however, cause a postponement of the main examination.
