Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) has approved special centers for 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) candidates having difficulty with registration and yet to complete and advised applicants to visit the centers in fast-tracking registration completion.
It explained that the special centers had been approved for candidates who could not complete their registration during the earlier scheduled registration period.
JAMB’s Head of Media, Dr Fabian Benjamin, stated that only candidates whose names were compiled after giving reasons for incomplete registration process and had been contacted were expected to visit the centres.
He added that the examination body had taken additional extension of two weeks to compile the list of all prospective candidates who were unable to register or had difficulty with their registration process.
According to him, 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 centers to complete the registration on Tuesday, June 15.
“Designated registration centre for each candidate is being forwarded to them through the GSM text (SMS) messages and also available on the website of the Board (www.jamb.gov.ng) from 12 noon on Monday, June 14.
“The identification number on each form given to the candidates has been used to assign the candidates to their registration centres. Only candidates who have secured their profile codes are expected to visit the centres.
“Also, the names of the few who have not yet obtained their NIN or profile codes have been forwarded to NIMC and would be contacted as soon as they are cleared by NIMC.
“Each candidate posted to any non-JAMB owned CBT centre is expected to pay the registration fee of N1,000 to such CBT centre,” Benjamin said. The 2021 UTME is scheduled to commence from June 19 to July 3.
