The Nigerian Senate has passed a resolution reducing the registration fee for JAMB's UTME from the N5,650 that was paid this year by students to N2, 500.

The resolution was taken following the adoption of the report of the Senate Committee on Tertiary Institutions and TETFund on the inquiry into the new admission policy of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

The Senators recommended for the extension of the validity period of the UTME to three academic year. They resolved to amend the Act establishing JAMB to reflect the extension of the validity period which is at the moment a year.

The Senate also adopted the recommendation of the Committee chaired by Senator Binta Masi Garba (APC, Adamawa North) that the change of institution, course form and other incidental activities around the exam should be free.

Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso (APC, Kano Central) stressed the need for government to look into the revenue being generated by JAMB.
