The examination body said candidates can now choose any other two subjects as part of their four UTME subjects if they so desire or as dictated by their programme preferences.

Meanwhile, JAMB’s director of admissions, Mohammed Ahmed, has written to vice-chancellors of the universities, asking them to reject A-Level results from the National Business and Technical Examinations Board (NABTEB).

Mr Ahmed said relevant government policies do not permit NABTEB to conduct advanced level examinations.

As contained in the Board’s latest weekly bulletin released on Monday, Mr Ahmed said: “Any A/L GCE Certificate issued by NABTEB is, therefore, not registrable with JAMB and the Board would not process the admission of any candidate with such a result.”
