The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has extended the deadline for the ongoing 2021 UTME/DE registration exercise by two weeks.
The exam body took the decision after a meeting with stakeholders following reports of widespread delay in the registration process among candidates for the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.
Prof Oloyede also announced that the registration exercise will now end on May 29.
The UTME Exams, will now run from June 19 to July 3. He said the mock exam which was to hold on May 28 will now take place on June 3.
The Jamb registrar noted that the board will consider the interest of candidates especially those having national identification number (NIN) challenges.
This comes after the JAMB Board earlier announced it’s contemplating an extension to the registration period and change of date for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination
