Recall that the Federal Government warned all tertiary educational institutions across the country against charging more than N2000 for post UTME screening.

The Minister of Education, Alhaji Adamu Adamu gave the warning at the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Policy Meeting on Admissions into Tertiary Institutions held in Gbongan, Osun state on Tuesday, June 26, 2018.

The Minister said: ”At the 2017 policy meeting, I endorsed that any institution which was interested in conducting any form of Post-UTME screening could do so, but that the gross charge for the screening should not be more than N2,000.

“Once again, let me caution heads of tertiary institutions that it would not be tolerated for any institution to charge any fee beyond the approved two thousand naira (N2000).

“Firmer sanctions than those of last session shall be applied to cases of violation,”

JAMB at the policy meeting also announced the date for the 2018 post Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination exercise.

According to JAMB Registrar,  Prof Ishaq Oloyede the post JAMB exercise will start from July and end in December 2018.
