The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board on Tuesday assured
candidates sitting for this year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation
Examination that they would not be denied the opportunity of writing the

Dr Fabian Benjamin, Head of Public Relations, JAMB, gave the assurance in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos following fears concerning a clash in the timetable of West African Senior School Certificate Examination and UTME.

According to the timetable, WAEC students who are expected to write
Animal Husbandry on April 11 by 9:00 a.m. are also expected to sit for
the UTME on the same day.

At least 1.8 million candidates are expected to write this year’s
UTME, while over one million students also registered for the May/June
examinations of the WASSCE across the country.

Benjamin explained that WAEC starts with practicals and that it has so many sessions for its practicals.

“People have been talking about clashes between WAEC and JAMB timetable.

“We (JAMB) have met with the WAEC management and WAEC has just given
us an assurance that there is no clash; that people don’t just
understand the modus operandi of the timetable especially as it affects
the practicals.

“The WAEC Practicals are in sections. There is no clash at all and
that allegation of a clash in timetable is unfounded and baseless.

“WAEC has given us an assurance that it has accommodated all the
fears of candidates. That the practical subjects are scheduled in
sections in such a way that there would not be any clash (between
UTME and WASCCE) at all.

“We want Nigerians to know that WAEC has actually accommodated the fears of candidates.

“This is as a result of the meeting between the Head of the National
Office of WAEC, Mr Isaac Adenipekun and JAMB Registrar, Ishaq Oloyede.

“JAMB examination takes just about two hours, but what WAEC is saying
is that candidates should go and be preparing for their examinations,’’
he said.
