UTME: JAMB extends registration deadline by two weeks

•Examination to begin on June 19
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has rescheduled the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and Direct Entry from June 3 to June 19 – July 3.

The board also granted a two-week extension for candidates to register.

The registration exercise will end on May 29.

The board also said the Mock UTME earlier scheduled for 20th May will now hold on June 3.

The board announced these in a communique issued at the end of a two-day meeting in Abuja by the Registrar, Prof Ishaq Oloyede.
Prof Oloyede said: “Desirous of affording prospective candidates more time to complete their registration for the 2021 UTME/DE, which was expected to end on Saturday, May 15, 2021, stakeholders recommended a two-week extension for registration, to now end on May 29, 2021.

“The extension is contingent upon stakeholders’ firm commitment to deliver on their respective responsibilities.

“Accordingly, the 2021 Mock UTME earlier scheduled for 20th May, 2021 will now hold on June 3, 2021 while the main UTME will hold from June 19 to July 3, 2021.

“JAMB will dispatch monitoring teams to all the states of the federation and the FCT during the extension period.”

The board directed computer- based test centres (CBT) to stop selling ePINs, saying that flouting this directive would attract appropriate sanctions.
