2018 JAMB application forms postponed.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has postponed the sale of the 2018 application forms earlier slated to commence on Wednesday, November 22.
The spokesman of the board, Fabian Benjamin, who disclosed this in a statement, said the postponement was as a result of the delay in meeting the agreed deadline by the publisher of the compulsory reading text meant for the prospective candidates.
The board added that the publisher had promised to deliver all the texts on or before the November, 7, 2017.
He said, “As at close of work today, the publisher had not provided the 1.8 million copies required and this development painfully forced to the Board to shift the date from Wednesday 22nd November, 2017 to a date to be announced soon.

“JAMB said it regrets all inconvenience occasioned by this postponement as it is working round the clock to announce a new date soon.”
The board therefore, urged candidates to visit its website to engage themselves with the brochure before the commencement of the sale of the application forms.
“The brochure has been placed on the Board’s website so as to enable candidates study it and avoid some of the mistakes associated with filling the application documents. Understanding the process will not only help the candidates fill the form smoothly but will also brightened their chances of getting admission”, he said.
