The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has indefinitely postponed the registration for the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE).
The registration was initially scheduled to commence on Thursday, April 8, 2022.
Dr. Fabian Benjamin, the JAMB Head of Media, in a statement on Thursday noted that the postponement was to ensure finishing touches on PIN vending processes before the take-off.
He noted that advertisement is the reliable indication of the beginning of the exercise as it would contain step-by-step processes that candidates are required to follow.
“The Board’s registration exercise was to begin today 8th April 2021. To be sure all processes are completed before the commencement, the Board didn’t place its advertorial as we are yet to complete the process of a smooth PIN vending and candidate access to the registration app for the 2021 UTME/DE,” the statement read.
“The delay is caused by some unforeseen circumstances occasioned by our determined effort to have a NIN integration. This challenge is being resolved and once that is done, all processes shall commence,” he said.
“The process shall be up and running shortly for our advertisement to be rollout so that candidates can begin the creation of profile.”
