According Benjamin, the sale of the application documents, which was scheduled to start on November 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 (Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations).
“The publisher had promised to deliver all the texts for the 2018 candidates on or before November 7 but as at close
of work today, the publisher has not provided the 1.8 million copies required.
“This development has painfully forced the Board to shift the date from Wednesday, November 22 to a date to be
announced soon,” he said.
Benjamin added that a new date would be announced soon and urged intending applicants to visit its website and
familiarise themselves with the application procedures.
“All reforms and the process of registration have been made very friendly and easy for candidates desirous of
applying for the 2018 exercise.
“The advertisement when out will explain step by step the processes of obtaining the application e-pins and
registration,” Benjamin concluded.
