JAMB Postpones 2021 Registration, Gives Further Directions

JAMB

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has postponed the commencement of registration for the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE).

As reported by The Nation, the postponement was due to the inability of candidates to create their profiles, adding that the exercise was expected to commence on Thursday, April 8 to Saturday, May 15.

STUDENTS WRITING EXAMS

It was also gathered that most banks were unable to generate the ePin (forms) for candidates as of Thursday, April 8. According to the report, a Computer Based Test (CBT) centre operator said they were unable to download the application to use for the registration.

He said candidates who visited his centre were turned back because of these challenges. Daily Nigerian also reports that the board, while announcing the guidelines for this year’s UTME, made the use of the National Identity Number (NIN) compulsory for the examination. Fabian Benjamin, the JAMB’s head of media and protocol, said in Abuja that the board confirmed the challenges surrounding the registration exercise.

He said the delay followed the examination body’s effort to ensure candidates have access to its registration app for the 2021 UTME/DE and also finalise work on its pin vending process before the take-off of the exercise.

”To be sure all processes are completed before the commencement, the Board didn’t place its advertorial as it was yet to complete the process of a smooth pin vending and candidate access to the registration app for the 2021 UTME/DE.

”This delay is caused by some unforeseen circumstances occasioned by our determined effort to have a NIN integration. This challenge is being resolved and once that is done, all processes shall commence.”
