The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) today announced that it was making slight adjustment to its examination duration.
Registrar/Chief Executive Prof. Is-haq Oloyede made the announcement Wednesday, March 29, in Kaduna.
He said: “We are going to reduce the duration of the examination for this year’s UTME. You cannot keep children of this age for three hours. For their age, the maximum time you can keep them is two hours. So, we are considering the reduction in the time they spend because once it is more than two hours you can’t expect that they will retain their presence of mind.”
