According to him the date for the exam will be revealed later as the date has not be fixed yet, he equally advised all registered candidate not to pay attention to false information regarding the JAMB examination dates
Meanwhile, the JAMB registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede explained why an unusual delay has preceded the sales of application forms.
He said the ongoing switch-over in the major thrust of the sale of form which is the scratch card to direct payment into the Treasury Single Account (TSA) was responsible for the delay.
Oloyede said: “We are changing the major trust of the sale which is the scratch card. Candidates used to buy scratch cards to access the forms online and that has been abused thoroughly.
“What we want to do is for students to pay directly to government coffers and we are working out the process of doing so to avoid the type of abuse that it has been subjected to. So, we want to sell directly and to make sure that candidates pay into TSA account.”
