Jointb Admission and Matriculations Board (JAMB) Monday announced dates for the commencement of the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculations Examination (UTME).

The JAMB registrar, Ishaq Oloyede, announced the dates during a stakeholders’ meeting in Abuja.

He said the UTME will commence between March 14 and April 14.

He also stated that an optional mock examination for candidates would also take place on February 18, 2020.

Registration for the exams will start on January 13 and end on February 17, he pointed out.

At a similar meeting in Lagos on Sunday, Professor Oloyede reiterated that only candidates with National Identification Number (NIN) will be registered for the 2020 UTME.

He said the use of NIN was in conformity with the laws of the land and not his own making.

He disclosed that JAMB was working closely with the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) to ensure all prospective candidates were captured and given NIN.

Asking Nigerians to give NIN a trial, the JAMB Registrar however said the Board would not be caught napping as according to him, it has a fall back position.
