Can JAMB Be Written Twice a Year? All You Need To Know

The frequency at which the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) conducts its examinations has been a topic of interest among students and stakeholders. 

According to (JAW), JAMB does not hold its examination twice a year. The article states that the best approach for students is to focus on gaining admission with the current JAMB examination.

JAMB regularization, which is a process for correcting issues with admission and registration, can be done twice. This refers to correcting errors or discrepancies in the JAMB registration process.

The House of Representatives in Nigeria has urged JAMB to extend the validity of UTME results from one to three years and conduct the exams at least twice per year. However, it is important to note that this is a recommendation and not an official policy change.

There is no specific limit to the number of times a student can take the JAMB examination. However, students must meet the eligibility criteria and register for the examination within the designated registration period.

It is possible to register for JAMB twice, but not in the same year. For example, a student can register for JAMB in 2021 and decide to re-register in 2022.

The House of Representatives has also sought a three-year validity for JAMB results and the conduct of entry exams at least twice annually, as reported by Vanguard News. However, it is important to note that this is a proposal and not yet implemented.

In conclusion, while there have been discussions and proposals regarding the frequency of JAMB examinations, as of now, JAMB does not hold its examination twice a year. Students are advised to focus on preparing for and taking the examination during the designated period and to stay updated with official announcements from JAMB.
