Well, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has made huge changes to the 2021 UTME calendar by shifting the dates of UTME, mock, and registration deadline by two weeks. The 2021 UTME, which was initially expected to begin as from 5th June 2021 has now been moved to begin from 19th June 2021 and will run until 3rd July 2021.
In a similar fashion, the registration deadline has been moved to 29th May 2021. Again, the JAMB mock exam for 2021 which was earlier slated for 20th May, will now hold on 3rd June.
The JAMB registrar explained that these changes had become relevant and unavoidable due to the challenges experienced during registration, which saw over 600,000 candidates left out of the process.
Candidates are also advised in their own interest to carry out their JAMB registration at JAMB Accredited CBT CENTRES Nation wide and JAMB OFFICES only. Total cost of JAMB registration is ₦4,700: Cost of JAMB Registration PIN: ₦3,500, Cost of Compulsory Reading Text: ₦500, and Service Charge for JAMB Registration: ₦700.
