ISSUES SURROUNDING THE 2021 UTME REGISTRATION: OPTION
AVAILABLE FOR GENUINE CANDIDATES WHO MADE ATTEMPT(S)
BUT COULD NOT REGISTER

It would be recalled that on Saturday 15th May 2021, the Joint Admissions
and Matriculation Board, after a
meeting with critical stakeholders as well
as in response to the pressure from public
spirited individuals and groups,
announced a two (2) week extension of
the registration period of 2021 UTME/DE
from Saturday 15 to Saturday 29 May,
2021.
Regrettably, from the time of extension,
the number of registrants fell drastically
until towards the new closing date.

At thenew closing day (29 May 2021), One
million, three hundred and eighty three
thousand, four hundred and twenty
(1,383, 420) candidates procured the
Pin for registration, while One million,
three hundred and seventy five
thousand, six hundred and ninety four
(1,375,694) have completed their
registration.
Despite this, there were
still complaints of inability to register
due to lateness or non-delivery of NIN
verification code; inability to obtain
NIN; mismatch or wrong names
originally submitted to NIMC (and
different from the ones being used for
the JAMB registration) etc.

While very few of such excuses have
been found to be genuine, a large
number is traceable to fraudsters who
are hell bent in subverting the system and
bypassing the well thought out decision
of the Federal Government to make NIN a
requirement for JAMB registration.
Due to time constraints within the
window available to JAMB on the Annual
National Examinations Timetable, further
extension of the registration period is not
feasible.
Nevertheless, the Board is desirous of
availing every prospective candidate the
opportunity to still participate in the 2021
registration exercise.
Consequently, all prospective candidates
with genuine proof(s) of failed efforts to register before the closing date, between Monday 31 May and 15 June 2021, visit any of the Joint Admissions
and Matri culation Board offices
(including JAMB owned Professional Test
Centres, PTCs) across the nation to:

1️⃣. obtain at no cost, and complete a Form
which is being made available to
candidates with genuine reasons for
missing the registration;
2️⃣. submit (for the Reading Test and the
Application), a certified Bank Draft of
N4,000 only in favour of the Joint
Admissions and Matriculation Board –
JAMB (and obtain a signed duplicate
copy from the office);
3️⃣. submit the completed Form with a
recent passport photograph at the
same office of collection;
4️⃣. collect a copy of the Reading Test;
5️⃣. Await further directives through the
registered phone number and Public
Service Announcement through 9pm
NTA Network NEWS as soon as
screening is completed.

Accordingly, the Joint Admissions and
Matriculation Board reiterates that:
I. There is no registration for 2021
UTME/DE without a properly
obtained NIN which has to be
verified/validated by NIMC.

ii. Anyone who submits another
application after having successfully
registered during the earlier
registration period will have the two
attempts disqualified.
iii. Any false claim will attract severe
sanctions, including forfeiture of the deposited Bank Draft, cancellation of
application(s), prosecution, etc.
iv. Due to the fact that some parents and
school proprietors have been found
to mislead candidates for illicit gains
and personal aggrandizement, the
Board advises all to allow each
candidate to personally go through
the process.
JAMB does not tolerate the involvement
of any third party or group in the
registration process.
