Senate Overwhelmingly Resolved that JME or "Jamb" Fees should be N2500 Naira and Result Validity for 3 Years.

Senate has unanimously resolved that the registration fee of Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) will henceforth be sold at N2,500 instead of  N5,650 which was the initial amount paid by students in the previous years and result validity should not be less than 3 years.

The Senate also adopted the recommendation of the Committee chaired by Senator Binta Masi Garba (APC, Adamawa North) that the change of institution, course form and other incidental activities around the exam should be free.
The resolution was taken following the adoption of the report of the Senate Committee on Tertiary Institutions and TETFund on the inquiry into the new admission policy of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB).
They also resolved to amend the Act establishing JAMB to reflect the extension of the validity period which is at the moment a year.
