UTME Results 3Years Validity On Hold as Senate Suspends Amendment of JAMB Act


The Senate on Wednesday said it had suspended its plan to amend the Act establishing the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board.

This comes barely two weeks after it announced the plan to amend the Act.

According to the Senate, the move was suspended to allow for adequate consultation with stakeholders.



The Upper Legislative Chamber had commenced the process of amending the Act, saying it was to create opportunity for the extension of the validity period of the result of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination conducted by JAMB to three years.

The Chairman, Senate Committee on Basic and Secondary Education and former governor of Sokoto State, Senator Aliyu Wamakko, represented by Senator Ajayi

Boroffice, confirmed the suspension of the amendment in an interview with journalists in Abuja, during an oversight visit to the headquarters of JAMB.



He said, “Your JAMB result is only valid for one year and we thought it will be better for it to be valid at least for three years. It will reduce the burden on the parents, on the students themselves and even on the institution that is conducting the test.

“I think it is what is good for all of us and I don’t think the public will reject it.”
