The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board on Sunday announced the rescheduling of its 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination to May 20 2021.

A statement by the Head of Public Affairs and Protocol in JAMB, Dr Fabian Benjamin, said the change of date was due to ongoing adjustment in its operation.

The statement reads, “The 2021 mock examination earlier scheduled to hold on Saturday April 30 2021, has now been rescheduled to hold on Thursday May 20, 2021.

“This change of date is owing to some ongoing adjustments in the Board’s operational processes. The change, however, will not affect the mock examination and other schedules, including the date for the UTME fixed for June 5 to 19 June, 2021. Candidates who have registered and have chosen to sit for the mock and other critical stakeholders are to note this change of date.

“Similarly, it is necessary to inform all stakeholders that the 2021 UTME/DE registration exercise is ongoing and it is to end on May 15 2021. The board has, however, noted with concern that some candidates, in trying to generate their profiles, are sending their details wrongly to 55019.

“The right process is to send the word, ‘NIN,’ allow one space in-between, then insert the 11 digits NIN number to 55019. Any other process is wrong and would not generate the profile code for the candidate.”
