JAMB postpones 2021 UTME/DE registration over NIN integration challenge

The registration for the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE) earlier scheduled to commence today, 8th April, 2021 has been postponed. This was contained in a statement by JAMB’s Head of Media and Protocol, Dr Fabian Benjamin.

He stated that the development was caused by some unforeseen circumstances occasioned by the board’s determined effort to have a NIN integration.

According to him, the Board didn’t place the 2021 UTME/DE registration advertorial as it was yet to complete the process of a smooth pin vending and candidate access to the registration app for the 2021 UTME/DE.

He added that the challenge is being resolved and once that is done, all processes shall commence. Candidates are therefore requested to exercise some patience. “The process shall be up and running shortly for our advertisement to be rollout so that candidates can begin the creation of profile

Candidates should not take this as an opportunity to relax as the issue will be resolved soon and the whole process will get back to top gear.
