Reps ask JAMB to extend UTME result validity to three years

The House of Representatives on Wednesday asked the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to extend the validity of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) results to three years.

This followed the adoption of a motion presented by the lawmaker representing Ekiti North 1 Federal Constituency, Akin Rotimi, at the plenary.

The Green Chamber also implored JAMB to conduct the UTME at least twice a year.
