JAMB reschedules mock UTME for May 20
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has fixed a new date for the conduct of its 2021 mock Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
A statement yesterday by its Head, Public Affairs and Protocol, Fabian Benjamin, said the test, earlier scheduled for April 30,2021, is to hold on May 20.
The release read: “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 in date is due to some ongoing adjustments in the board’s operational processes. The change, however, would not affect other schedules, including the date for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination fixed for June 5 to 19, 2021.
“Candidates, who have registered and chosen to sit for the mock and other critical stakeholders, are to note this change of date.”
It added: “Similarly, it is necessary to inform all stakeholders that the 2021 UTME/DE registration is ongoing and it is to end on 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 eleven digit NIN number to 55019 e.g. NIN 00000000000. Any other process is wrong and would not generate the profile code for the candidate.
