JAMB Introduces Two More Subjects For UTME

Students seeking admission into Universities, Polytechnics, Colleges of Educations and other higher institutions will now have two more subjects to sit for in the yearly Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.

The development was contained in an address in Abuja on Saturday, December 4 by the Registrar, Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB.

According to Oloyede, the admission seekers would now have the inclusion of Physical Health Education and Computer Science in their subject choices during the UTME.

“We are asking and sensitising the public, particularly the students, who are to take the exam, that these are two science subjects that will be added to their choice to widen opportunities for candidates to be able to access tertiary education,” Oloyede stated.

These according to the registrar, will widen opportunities for candidates who have missed admissions in the past due to poor performances.

Oloyede also noted that the board would soon clear the backlog of illegal admissions conducted by tertiary institutions in the country.

He stressed that students who were improperly admitted but had the minimum qualifications would now have the opportunity to be offered admission.
