18,000 CANDIDATES GET CHANCE TO TAKE UTME ON AUGUST 6th

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has fixed Friday, 6th August, 2021 for 18, 000 candidates who missed the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) to retake the examination.

The Board said the examination will take place in some select locations across the country.

JAMB’s Head of Media Fabian Benjamin said this in a statement on Thursday in Abuja.

The Board said the 18,000 candidates slated for the examination are being notified through both text messages on their designated phone numbers and their JAMB profiles.

It therefore directed the affected candidates to print fresh examination notification slips containing the venue and time of the examination from its website from August 1.

Following a detailed investigation and careful analysis of the highly-successful 2021 UTME, and with due consultation (resulting in gracious concession) with the National Examination Council (NECO) concerning the timetable of the council’s ongoing SSCE, JAMB has scheduled a Mop-up UTME for Friday, 6th August, 2021, in some selected locations across the nation.

“About 18,000 candidates slated for the examination are being notified through both text messages on their designated phone numbers and their JAMB profiles.

“In addition, the candidate can check using their registration number on http://www.jamb.gov.ng/2021mopup.

For the avoidance of doubt, no candidate whose result has been duly released will be rescheduled for another examination contrary to the sponsored fake news being circulated on the social (and few mischievous conventional) media,” the statement said.

According to the statement, those affected include;

i. Candidates who could not be initially scheduled for examination owing to their inability to timely procure and supply their mandatory NINs or profile codes until after the close of the registration exercise and, therefore, had to purchase Bank Drafts ( as against the usual vending of PINs) after the scheduled period for the examination and were later registered.

ii. Few candidates who encountered peculiar biometric verification problem, or who failed biometric verification on the examination date ( and were recaptured) but were not allowed to partake in the examination.

Adequate screening arrangements have been made to reverify such claims and any candidate found to be involved in any form of impersonation will be identified for prosecution).

iii. Candidates who were unable to sit for theUTME 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, and

iv. Candidates who have been ascertained by JAMB to have experienced genuine rescheduling/technical problems as was the case in 30 of the 760 centres used for the examination.

The Board advised candidates to avoid supplying their “vital information including registration number to fraudsters who are abound especially in cybercafe(s), tutorial centres springing up almost everywhere in the nation as a result of the illicit activities of examination syndicates.”

The statement added: “CBT centres approved by JAMB which are consistently monitored are relatively more secured for printing examination notification slips by candidates who cannot print such on their own.”
