Jamb
The Senate today passed a resolution reducing the registration fee of Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) to N2, 500 from N5, 650 that was paid by prospective university students this year. The resolution was taken following the adoption of the report of the Senate Committee on Tertiary Institutions and TETFund on the inquiry into the new admission policy of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

At the plenary session today, the senators recommended the extension of the validity period of the UTME to three academic years. They also resolved to amend the Act establishing JAMB to reflect the extension of the validity period which is at the moment a year.
