2021 UTME: JAMB Confirms Postponement, Announces New Date

JAMB

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has extended registration for the annual Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination by two weeks.

The registration exercise will now end on Saturday, May 29, while the UTME is now expected to hold from June 19 to July 3.

The new position was credited to the registrar of JAMB, Prof Is-haq Oloyede, who spoke at a press conference on Saturday, May 15, in Abuja.

The examination had earlier been slated to hold between June 5 and 19, while the JAMB registrar had earlier given notification that the possibility of shifting the date for the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) was very high.

Prof. Ishaq had explained that this was because of the inability of at least 600,000 candidates to register for the examination.

Meanwhile, speaking at a virtual meeting with 2021 UTME committee members on Friday, May 14, Prof Oloyede disclosed that 1.1 million candidates have so far registered for the 2021 UTME.
