JAMB may postpone Exam date – Registrar


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB examination scheduled between June 5 and June 19 is likely going to be postponed.

This was according to the Registrar of the board, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede.

Oloyede during a virtual meeting with 2021 UTME Committee members said over 600,000 candidates were unable to register owing to challenges they faced in their bid to get the National Identity Number(NIN).

“The possibility of shifting the exam forward is still high; but that will be determined after our meeting with stakeholders.

”This is because about 600,000 candidates who have indicated interest in the exam are yet to register. There is a need to give everyone the opportunity,” the registrar said, adding that over 1.1 million candidates have registered so far.
