The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has introduced Computer Studies and Physical and Health Education as part of its Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination subjects.

The board disclosed this in a release by the Director of Public Relations, Dr Fabian Benjamin, in Abuja.

It said that candidates sitting for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination could now pick Computer Studies or Physical and Health Education as part of the four required Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination subjects, if they so desire or as dictated by their programme preferences.

The board said that the addition of the two subjects to the existing twenty-three Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination subjects would commence from the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination exercise.

According to the board, the move is to enhance the career prospect of students transiting to tertiary institutions.
