JAMB Announces New Date For 2021 UTME



Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has announced the extension of the deadline for the ongoing 2021 UTME/DE registration exercise by two weeks.

Registrar of JAMB, Prof Is-haq Oloyede, making the announcement at a press conference on Saturday in Abuja, said the examination date has been shifted from June 19 to July 3.

The decision was made just a day after the registrar stated that there was a possibility of extending the deadline following reports of widespread delay in the registration process among candidates for 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.

Speaking at a virtual meeting with 2021 UTME committee members on Friday, Oloyede disclosed that 1.1 million candidates have so far registered for the 2021 UTME, and the board anticipated approximately 1.9 million registrations at the end of the exercise.

The JAMB boss noted that while 50 per cent of the candidates have already registered without problem, there was a need to carry everyone along.

Oloyede however confirmed that the mock examination that is slated for May 20 will go on as scheduled.
