The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced a new date for the commencement of the sale of the 2018 application forms.
It would be recalled, JAMB had last month postponed the date for the sale of 2018 application forms due to the delay in meeting the agreed deadline by the publisher of the compulsory text meant for prospective candidates.
However, the board disclosed that the sale and registration of all candidates, including those from foreign countries, will now hold from December 6 to February 6, 2018.
The spokesperson of the board, Fabian Benjamin, made this known while speaking with newsmen on Sunday evening.
He said registration fee is N5,000 while an additional N500 will be paid to obtain a compulsory reading text “INDEPENDENCE” for UTME candidates and “The Last Days at Forcados High School” for direct entry candidates.
According to the board, candidates who are interested in the mock exams are advised to register before December 31.
He said: “The MOCK examination shall commence from Monday 22 to Wednesday 24 January 2018 and the CBT Centres are allowed to collect, through their bank accounts, a separate ₦700 for this exercise from interested candidates after notiﬁcation of the center has been received by the candidate.”
The board had also proposed March 9 to 17, 2018 as the date for the examination.
