The Joint Admission and Matriculations Board (JAMB) has hinted at the possibility of the postponement of the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), which is slated to hold between June 5 and June 19, 2021.

Speaking during a virtual meeting with 2021 UTME committee members on Friday, JAMB Registrar Prof Ishaq Oloyede disclosed that the possibility of shifting the exam date scheduled to hold between June 5 and 19 is very high.

Oloyede said so far, 1.1 million candidates have registered for the 2021 UTME, stating that the board anticipates approximately 1.9 million registrations at the end of the exercise.

Oloyede, who said that the board will decide if there is a need to extend the registration period and change the date of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, however, stated that the Mock examination would still go ahead on May 20 as stipulated earlier.
