Matriculated Students of Nigeria’s tertiary institutions ARE NOT eligible to write JAMB UTME. This is a fact that has been known for years. If you are already a matriculated student of a University, Polytechnic or another tertiary intuition, you are no longer qualified to sir for JAMB UTME.
Lately, we have been receiving messages from candidates who are asking us if they could write the coming UTME, even though they are already students of some Universities in Nigeria. No, you cannot. The lasses message from JAMB to candidates also confirms that – in case you have any doubts.
Can Matriculated Students Write JAMB UTME?
Here is an example of a message we have received on this topic:
Please can a matriculated student apply for jamb 2017? Please I need your response quickly. I’m so down due to some information I’m hearing around. I’m a 100l student, want to rewrite jamb. please
No is the answer. Fabian Benjamin, Head of Public Relations JAMB, made this known on Monday in a telephone interview with the Punch.
He said, “Students with matriculation numbers of universities are not eligible to sit for the UTME. If they are not satisfied with their chosen disciplines, they can ask for transfer.’’
We hope this answer your questions now. If you have any other questions, please drop a comment.
