The board disclosed that the examination would now hold in May 2017. Speaking in an interview with The Guardian in his office, JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede gave reasons for the shift in date from March when the Computer-Based Test (CBT) usually hold to May.

According to him: “Normally, we conduct our UTME examinations around March, but the result would be ready in about two or three days and we keep this. But when do we need the result, it is about July or August and that is why there is room for suspicion. If you go on the net, you will see people claiming that they can help people upgrade their results. The reason for this is that the results are left to lie fallow from March to July.”http://tpc.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-6/html/container.html



Oloyede further disclosed that the board is communicating with other examination bodies such as the West Africa Examinations Council (WAEC), National Examinations Council (NECO) and National Business and Technical Examination Board (NABTEB) to ensure they do not make their examinations mutually exclusive.

He said after mutual consultation with these bodies, it was agreed that JAMB examinations would hold without clashing with dates for the other tests.

Meanwhile, the National Business and Technical Education Board (NABTEB) has released the results of the November/December 2016 National Business Certificate and National Technical Certificate (NBC/NTC) and the Advanced National Business Certificate and Advanced National Technical Certificate (ANBC/ANTC).

The Registrar/Chief Executive Prof. Ifeoma Isiugo-Abanihe, who made the announcement in Benin City, Edo State, called on state governments to establish more technical in local council areas to train young persons in technical and vocational studies.

According to her, 21,476 of the 48,842 candidates that sat for the examinations scored five credits and above in English Language and Mathematics, representing about 47 per cent success rate.
