He said government would make arrangement that would accommodate applicants who would be taking the examination when the opportunity to do so had worked out.

“JAMB and tertiary institutions could take advantage of the current situation and consider candidates with previous years Senior School Certificate Examination and other qualifying results to proceed on with the admission process.

 

“Whatever arrangement that the country comes up with in the long run will surely accommodate those who will be taking the examination when the opportunity to do so is worked out,” he said.

 

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that admission processes were expected to commence in August based on the guidelines released by JAMB.
