The bill seeking to amend the Act establishing the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to extend the validity period of UTME results to 3 years has been passed for Second Reading at the Senate.
According to the Senate President, Abubakar Bukola Saraki, who made the disclosure after plenary session today, the legislation will ensure that the JAMB results of students will be valid for up to 3 years, as opposed to the current 1 year validity period.
He said that the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has been saddled with the responsibility of ushering in young school leavers into tertiary institutions for many years.
However, due to several factors, hundreds of thousands of candidates that sit for JAMB exams and do not secure their admission into higher institutions in the same year have to sit for the same exam the next year. This he described as unacceptable.
The Senate president reiterated his hope that the amendment will go a long way in reducing the financial constraints on parents, and the psychological burdens on students who have secured pass marks but are unable to gain admission in the same year.
