The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has opened up on the issue of the deadline for admission exercise of the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) candidates on the guidelines for 2020 admission exercise prior to the uncertainties of the coronavirus.
Some candidates have been displaying unnecessary anxiety concerning the slowdown in their admission exercise. This shouldn’t be because it is neither the candidates who are to conduct their admission exercise themselves. The board and the Institutions are obviously responsible for the conduct of candidates admission exercise. In this respect, candidates should relax and prepare well in advance for their forthcoming admission screening and exercise.
Candidates should not think that the 2020 admission exercise will be scrapped as the board had opened up on the issue of the deadline for 2020 admission process. The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) had stated on the 2020 admission guidelines that the deadline for the 2020 admission exercise to all Institutions shall be determined by the Federal ministry of education. The board maintained that it will be communicated to all Institutions due to the uncertainties of the coronavirus.
As the board had stated above, candidates should relax carefully and take their time to prepare in advance for their prospective screening exercise. The postponement of the date for their screening exercise is just a favour in disguise for them. Hence, they should use their time wisely. To fail to prepare is to prepare to fail.
The 2021 prospective Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), who are yet to register for their examinations should be aware of the fact that the registration form for the examination is not on sale yet. Perhaps this is as a result of the coronavirus restriction order by the federal government.
In this respect, all candidates, the 2020 UTME candidates and the prospective UTME candidates 2021 and other well-meaning Nigerians who are reading this should pray fervently unto God. Let’s implore him to heal our country of the deadly pandemic virus. So that normalcy will be restored in our country and things will be done in the way they are supposed to be done and at the time they are supposed to be executed.
