The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board, JAMB has announced that it may extend the registration period for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME and modify the exam date.
Prof. Is’aq Oloyede, the Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, announced this during a Zoom meeting with stakeholders on Friday.
Oloyede, on the other hand, announced that the Mock review would begin on May 20, as planned.
“Presently, we have 1.2 million candidates that have registered so far. 600,000 candidates also made attempt to register but because of NIN, they could not.
“We are looking at doing an appraisal of all the issues to know if we are extending registration or not.”
“Extending registration may not be the solution if we will be able to give 80 per cent of those who have made attempt another password, then there will be no need to extend registration.”
