The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has introduced Computer Studies and Physical and Health Education as part of its UTME subjects.
The board made this known in its weekly bulletin released by the Director of Public Relations, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, and made it available to newsmen in Abuja on Monday.
In the bulletin, the board disclosed that the 2022 UTME will be held from Friday, May 6 to Monday, May 16, while the mock examination exercise, earlier scheduled for April 2, would now be held on April 16, for candidates who registered early and indicated their willingness to sit for the mock UTME.
The board said that there was no alteration in the date for the commencement of the sale of forms.
According to it, “The date for the commencement of sale of the 2022 UTME/DE application document which was slated to start from February 12 to March 19 remains as stated earlier.
“In its bid to accommodate some exigencies, which ultimate goals are to ensure maximal benefits to potential candidates, JAMB has made adjustments to its examination timelines.
“Given the breakdown of the adjusted timelines, the 2022 UTME would be held from Friday, May 6 to Monday, May 16, while the mock exercise, earlier scheduled for April 2, would now be held on April 16, for candidates who registered early and indicated their willingness to sit the Mock UTME.
“This review, as approved by management, is to ensure that the candidates who would be sitting the examination and others are not denied the opportunity to express themselves in other public examinations without forfeiting any examination.”
