JAMB has revealed that over 1,223,962 candidates have been registered in the ongoing 2021 UTME registration while over 63,586 candidates have been registered for the Direct Entry as of May 24th, 2021. This was contained in the weekly bulletin publication of the Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) via its official website.
According to JAMB, the registration deadline remains May 29th, 2021. JAMB however did not disclose if the e-PIN vending will end on the same date as the registration.
That notwithstanding, we advise candidates who are still yet to generate their profile codes to still keep trying as from all indications, the e-PIN vending will likely continue and end on the same date as registration unless JAMB officially announces otherwise.
Meanwhile, JAMB has warned parents registering their wards for the 2021 UTME to beware of extortion as it has come to the knowledge of the board that some elite schools are using the name of the Board to extort huge sums of money from parents under the guise of registering for the Board’s processes or that the Board has ordered such payments.
Parents are to note that the cost of the UTME forms (ePINs) remains N3500 and N500 for the reading text and nothing more. Parents are to ensure that their children register for the UTME individually and not as a group. In addition, the CBT centres have been directed not to charge above N700 as their service charge for the registration.
