JAMB POSTPONES 2021 UTME DATE, EXTENDS REGISTRATION DEADLINE BY TWO WEEKS
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has extended the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME registration by two weeks.
The Board also extended the UTME examination as well as the mock to further dates.
JAMB’S Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, announced the extension at a press conference on Saturday, in Abuja.
The examination date was shifted from June 19 to July 3.
Oloyede said the decision was the outcome of a two-day stakeholders’ meeting the board had in Abuja.
He stated that stakeholders recommended the two-week extension to grant candidates who have not been able to register as a result of some challenges associated with the National Identification Number (NIN) and others to do so.
