The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board JAMB has listed Computer studies and Physical Health Education PHE as UTME Subjects.
The Governing Board of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, at its thirteenth (13th) meeting held on Wednesday, 24th March 2021, approved the listing of Computer Studies and Physical and Health Education as subjects to be examined in the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination from 2022/2023 exercise.
This approval brings the total number of UTME subjects to 25 from the initial 23 thereby giving the candidates a wider opportunity of subjects from where to pick.
To take the UTME, candidates are required to pick three subjects apart from the use of English which is
compulsory for bringing the total number of subjects to four.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) met with the nation’s Heads of Tertiary Institutions,
who are critical stakeholders, on Wednesday, 7th April 2021.
The meeting would discuss extensively, among others, how to strengthen certain operational processes to ensure greater efficiency, transparency and stricter compliance.
It should be noted that the Board, in the course of fulfilling its mandate, ensures that it periodically reviews all its operational processes to identify areas of weaknesses and strengths to fashion out appropriate remedial measures.
