The mock Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), organized by the Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) will no longer hold on Saturday, 30 April.
The board disclosed in a statement, signed by its Head, Public Affairs and Protocol, Dr Fabian Benjamin, and made available to journalists on Sunday, in Abuja that the mock exam will now hold on Thursday, 20 May.
The statement said that the change was part of the board’s ongoing adjustments of its operational processes.
” The change, however, would not affect other schedules, including the date for the UTME, fixed for June 5 to 19.
JAMB also noted that the 2021 UTME and Direct Entry (DE) registration was ongoing and also scheduled to end on 15 May.
Candidates, the board said, were to first generate their profiles by sending their details to 55019.
“The right process is to send the word “NIN”, allow one space in between, then insert the eleven digits NIN number and send to 55019, that is; NIN 00000000000.
“Any other process is wrong and would not generate the profile code for the candidate.
“It is also necessary for the candidate to know that only the SIM that is linked to his or her NIN can be used to send the NIN to 55019.” It stated
The registration for 2021 UTME/DE commenced April 8, to end on May 15, while the examination is scheduled to commence from June 5 to June 19.
