The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) have announced that about 18,000 candidates would sit for the 2021 UTME mop-up examinations nationwide on Friday, August 6, 2021. The purpose of conducting the examination is to make up for minor hitches recorded during the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
According to a statement released by Jamb through their spokesperson, Dr Fabian, they said; “Following a detailed investigation and careful analysis of the highly successful 2021 UTME, and with due consultation with the National Examination Council (NECO) concerning the timetable of the council’s ongoing SSCE, the JAMB has scheduled a mop-up UTME for Friday, August 6, 2021, in some selected locations across the nation.
“The rescheduled candidates are to print fresh examination notification slips containing the venue and the time of the examination. The slips are to be printed from the JAMB website https://www.jamb.gov.ng using the candidates’ registration number from Sunday, August 1, 2021.”
Dr. Benjamin disclosed that no candidate whose result has been released would be rescheduled for another examination. He mentioned that affected candidates included those that were not scheduled, initially, for examination, owing to their inability to procure and supply their mandatory NINs or profile codes before the close of the registration exercise, the few candidates that either encountered peculiar bio-metric verification problems or failed biometric verification on the examination date’
He also mentioned that those who were unable to sit for the exam, owing to the clash of timetables of the UTME and the then ongoing NABTEB examinations and whose particulars have been verified and supplied directly to JAMB by NABTEB.
Dr Benjamin affirmed that affected candidates have been notified through text messages on their designated phone numbers and their JAMB profiles or they can check, using their registration number, on http://www.jamb.gov.ng/2021mopup.
