The 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination(UTME) has been moved from June 19 to July 3, Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board(JAMB), Prof Is-haq Oloyede has announced.
He made the announcement at an ongoing press conference on Saturday in Abuja.
The examination was slated to hold between June 5 and 19.
The registrar also announced an extension registration for the examination by two weeks.
The registration exercise will now end on May 29.
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.
