The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has made announcement on resetting it’s 2021 Examination to the 20th of May 2021.
Jamb added that the reason for the change was because of some adjustments within the organization
According to a statement read by Dr. Fabian Benjamin, the Head of Public Affairs and Jamb Protocols, said it would not affect the other things, adding the date for the UTME fixed for between June 5 and 19 2021.
The statement said; “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, would 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 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.”
“Also, it is also necessary for the candidate to know that only the SIM that is linked to his/her NIN can be used to send the NIN to 55019.”
“The right process is to send the word “NIN” allow one space in between, then insert the eleven digits NIN number to 55019 e.g. NIN 00000000000. Any other process is wrong and would not generate the profile code for the candidate.”
