According to the lawmaker, the yearly examination is great and has been able to determine applicants who are prepared for the rigorous task of studying in the tertiary environment but having a year valid score has been cumbersome, distorting, and worrisome to the average Nigerian.

Take a look at IELTS, SATS, GRE, and others recognised exam, they are either valid for three or four years and they have remained one of best after being able to stand the test of time.
“The Bill seeks to increase the validity of the results of the Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) from one (1) year to three (3) years”.
Akande-Sadipe also noted that candidates, after the bill is adopted and passed into law, could be admitted into the university three years after sitting for UTME.
