The 2021 UTME mock exam earlier scheduled to hold April 30th by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has been postponed. This was contained in a statement signed by the head of Public Affairs and Protocol Unit, Fabian Benjamin.
According to him, the change is due to some ongoing adjustments in the Board’s operational processes. The UTME mock will now hold June 3rd, 2021. Candidates who have registered and have chosen to sit the Mock and other critical stakeholders are to note this change of date.
However, the change would not affect the deadline for the registration and the date for the main exam. The registration deadline is now May 29th, 2021 and the main exam holds June 19th to July 3rd, 2021.
The Board has, however, noted with concern that some candidates in trying to generate their profiles are sending their details wrongly to 55019.”
JAMB, which conducts entrance examinations into Nigeria’s tertiary institutions, said the right process is to send the word “NIN” followed by a space and the eleven digits NIN number to 55019, to generate their profiles.
“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.
