The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, Saturday, announced the extension of the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, and the Direct Entry, DE registration by two weeks.
JAMB’S Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, announced the extension at a press conference, in Abuja.
The board also extended the UTME examination as well as the mock to further dates.
The decision, according to Oloyede,was the outcome of a two-day stakeholders’ meeting the board had in Abuja.
He said stakeholders recommended that a two-week extension be granted to candidates who have not been able to register as a result of some challenges associated with the National Identification Number,NIN,and others.
He said a total of 1,134,424 candidates have so far registered as at the time the press conference was held.
