Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) has extended the registration for 2021/2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculations Examination to June 15 so as to enable candidates who are yet to complete their registration to finish the process.
This was contained in a statement made by JAMB’s spokesman, Fabian Benjamin on Monday. The statement titled “Completion of 2021 UTME/DE registration for candidates who did not register within the stipulated time and the extension period”, explained that the extension was for only those who could not complete their registration during the earlier scheduled registration period.
He noted that only candidates who gave reasons for incomplete registration and have their names compiled are expected to visit the centres to finish registration.
“At the end of the period originally scheduled for the 2021/2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculations Examination and Direct Entry registration on May 15, the registration period was extended.
“Another two weeks that elapsed on May 29 was given to accommodate candidates who, largely due to issues related with newly introduced pre-requisite of National Identification Number, could not register.
“The candidates who have not registered but have secured the profile codes and initiated the registration process are expected to visit the specially designated registration centres to complete the registration on Tuesday, June 15,” he said.
Although in May, JAMB said it would no longer extend the closing date for candidates registering for the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and the Direct Entry (DE) applications after the board had extended the exercise from the initial closing date of May 15 to Saturday, May 29, the board decided to be considerate to those candidates who had issues and could not for one reason or the other complete their registration.
