    2. Bolarinwa Olajire says:

      You guys need to be patient with NNPC/SNEPCo. IF the exam will still hold on Saturday 30th, the notiication should come before Thursday 28th. But if that doesn’t happen, it is very likely the exam date will be postpone.

        1. Bolarinwa Olajire says:

          Thanks Wale for this information. Were you told when the exam will come up?

          1. No they didn’t state that, perhaps when they start shortlisting we’ll be notified

  17. Tijjani Tukur says:

    please how are we going to do our exams

  18. We need to know the new exam date.

  19. Henry Amax says:

    It’s also possible that they have sent messages to some people regarding when and where they will write cos not everyone is complaining about this. It’s really absurd the day of exam has passed no information yet.

    1. Bolarinwa Olajire says:

      They have not sent any message to anyone. The online application was official closed on the 30 September, 2017. Very soon exam date will be communicated.
