UPDATE: JAMB postpones 2021 UTME

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has shifted the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) from June 19 to July 3.

The Board also announced the extension of registration for the examination by 2 weeks, with the exercise now to end on May 29.

This disclosure was made by the Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof Ishaq Oloyede, at an ongoing press conference on Saturday in Abuja.

Oloyede said that the decision was the outcome of a 2-day stakeholders’ meeting the board had in Abuja.

The examination was earlier slated to hold between June 5 and 19.

He stated during the press conference that JAMB expects that the 2-week extension will provide more candidates an opportunity to register for the examination.

The JAMB Registrar while reading the board’s communique after the meeting also said the Mock UTME earlier scheduled for 20th May will now hold on June 3 adding that only 1,134,424 candidates (UTME+DE) have so far been registered.
