Report has it that President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the reduction in the cost of JAMB UTME, NECO SSCE and the Basic Education Certificate Examination forms. The reduction will be implemented from January 2019 with the cost of JAMB UTME Form dropping from N5,000 to N3,500 while NECO will drop from N11,350 to N9,850.

This was disclosed by the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, announced this on Wednesday during the Federal Executive Council meeting in Abuja.

FG Reduces Cost Of JAMB, NECO and BECE Forms

According to him, these exam bodies are not meant to be revenue generating bodies, they’re only supposed to cover costs/operating expenses.

He noted that the obvious increase in the amount amount being remitted by JAMB from less than N60m in 2010 - 2016 to 15 Billion in 2017 - 2018 is an indication that the fees being charged could be reduced.

The minister, in his announcement stated that the president directed the Ministry to look into the reduction following the significant improvement in revenues being remitted to the Treasury by the Education Agencies.

Meanwhile, we are still monitoring when the 2019 JAMB Form will be released on Sale. You too can monitor this progress via this link; JAMB 2019 Registration Begins - Monitoring Thread
