The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Tuesday said it has postponed the sale of its 2018 application forms for intending candidates.
The Board disclosed this in a statement, signed by its Head of Media, Dr Fabian Benjamin and made available to newsmen in Abuja.
According Benjamin the sale of the application documents, which was scheduled to start on Nov. 22 suffered delay due to the publishers’ inability to print the 1.8 million copies of the forms before the deadline.

” This postponement was due to the delay in meeting agreed deadline by the publisher of the Compulsory Reading Text meant for prospective candidates for the 2018 UTME.
“The publisher had promised to deliver all the texts for the 2018 candidates on or before Nov.7 but as at close of work today, the publisher has not provided the 1.8m copies required.
“This development has painfully, forced the Board to shift the date from Wednesday, Nov.22 to a date to be announced soon.”
Benjamin said the Board would work round the clock to ensure a new date was announced soon while urging intending applicants to visit the boards website and familiarise themselves with the application procedures.
This, he said , would help them to understand the process as well as help them fill the form smoothly and also “brighten their chances of getting admission.
