JAMB postpones UTME 2021 Mock exams


The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) has rescheduled the 2021 Mock Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

The exam which was to hold on Saturday, April 30, will now take place Thursday, May 20.

JAMB’s Head, Head, Public Affairs, Fabian Benjamin, in a statement said the change of date was due to ongoing adjustments in operational processes.

Benjamin explained this would not affect the Mock Examination other schedules, including the date for the UTME fixed for 5th to 19th June, 2021.

The spokesman informed all stakeholders that the 2021 UTME/DE Registration exercise is ongoing and will end on 15th May, 2021.

The board, however, said it was concerned that some candidates, in trying to generate their profiles, were sending their details wrongly to 55019.

“The right process is to send the word “NIN” allow one space in between, then insert the eleven digits NIN number to 55019 e.g. NIN 00000000000.

“Any other process is wrong and would not generate the profile code for the candidate. It is also necessary for the candidate to know that only the SIM that is linked to his/her NIN can be used to send the NIN to 55019”, the statement added.
