The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board have said it may extend the registration period and change of date for the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.
Prof. Is’aq Oloyede, the JAMB registrar, disclosed this during a zoom meeting with stakeholders on Friday.
Oloyede stated that the Mock examination would begin on May 20 as stipulated earlier.
He said, “Presently, we have 1.2 million candidates that have registered so far. 600,000 candidates also made attempt to register but because of NIN, they could not.
“We are looking at doing an appraisal of all the issues to know if we are extending registration or not.
“Extending registration may not be the solution if we will be able to give 80 per cent of those who have made attempt another password, then there will be no need to extend registration.
“We have to determine where the problem is coming before we decide on whether to extend the registration or not.
“After today, we will address the press on the outcome of the meeting on the main examination date and registration,” he said.
ANLNews had earlier reported that the UTME was scheduled to hold between June 5 and 19.
