Date Scheduled For The Exam

Friday, 6th August ,2021 has been fixed by Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board for 18, 000 candidates who missed the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME). The board is giving them this opportunity to retake the UTME

The Board said the UTME will take place in some selected locations across the country.

In a statement made by JAMB’s Head of Media, Fabian Benjamin on Thursday in Abuja. He said;

“The Board has notified 18,000 candidates who are to sit for this for the examination. He said the board has notified them through both text messages on their designated phone numbers and their JAMB profiles.

Thereby directing this set of candidates to print fresh examination notification slip which will contain the venue and time of the examination.


With the careful analysis and thorough investigation of the just concluded highly successful 2021 UTME, it came to the board’s notice that the initial date set for the exam collided with the ongoing National Examination Council (NECO) timetable. JAMB then scheduled the date for the Mop-up UTME for Friday, 6th August 2021,. The exam as earlier said would be taken in some selected location across the country.

“Also, candidates can check using their registration number on


Also in the statement, “No candidate whose result has been released will be sitting for this forthcoming bexamination; contrary to the fake news that circulated round all social media platforms’this is create awareness and not confusion among candidates”.

Who is eligible for this examination?

Based on the statement, those who’ll sit for this examination include;

i Candidates who were not able to provide the compulsory NINs or profile codes required by the board until after the close of the registration exercise and, therefore, were not scheduled for the main examination and also had to purchase Bank Draft after the scheduled period for the examination and were later registered.

ii.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

ii.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 wrote the NABTEB examination and were unable to sit for the UTME due 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.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.

The Board advised candidates to avoid giving out their “important 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: “Registered 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.”
