JUST IN: 2021 UTME Registration Extended By Two Weeks – JAMB

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced the extension of registration of 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination by two weeks.

The examination, which is expected to hold from June 5 and 19, will now hold between June 19 and July 3.

The UTME is a computer-based standardised examination for prospective undergraduates in Nigeria.

JAMB Registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, had raised the possibility of the extension earlier on Friday during a virtual meeting with UTME committee members.

He cited, for the extension, the inability of at least 600,000 candidates to register for the examination despite indicating interest.

About 1.1 million candidates have already registered for the examination, according to JAMB.

“There is a need to give everyone the opportunity,” Professor Oloyede said on Friday.
