JAMB Result 3 Years Validity On Hold as Senate Halts Amendment of JAMB Act

The Nigerian Senate has suspended its planned amendment of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) act.

The Senate on Wednesday said it has suspended the amendment of the Act establishing the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) in order to allow for adequate consultation with stakeholders.

The Senate had last Thursday passed the bill, extending the validity of the result from one to three years.

The decision, the senate had said, was granted to reduce the financial burden of the examination on parents, students and JAMB.

Chairman, Senate Committee on Education (Basic and Secondary), Senator Aliyu Wamakko, confirmed the suspension to reporters during an oversight visit to the headquarters of JAMB in Abuja.

The suspension was to avoid impeding on the progress being made by JAMB in the conduct of examinations in Nigeria.He said: “Your JAMB result is only valid for one year and we thought it would be better for it to be valid for at least three years. That would reduce the burden on the parents, students and even the institution that is conducting the test. I think it is good for all of us and would not be rejected by the public.

In his reaction, the Registrar/Chief Executive of JAMB, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, said he was happy the senate listened to its appeal to suspend the amendment of its Act.

According to him, the extension of its UTME result to three years would do more harm than good.
