He added that most registered Approved Private Junior Secondary Schools are yet to upload the bio-data of their candidates which caused the delay in the printing of their OMR Sheets.

In the same vein, the director informed that it is pertinent to shift the dates of the examinations to accommodate other schools that were unable to upload the data of their candidates into the Board’s Database not to deny these students the opportunity to write the examinations.

Mr. Gbadegesin also noted that the postponement would further enable the Board to address some unforeseen logistical problems that arose towards the commencement of the examination.
