The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) on Sunday has announced the postponement of the 2021 Mock Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
The board had fixed Saturday, 30th April to hold the exam but has now been postponed to hold on Thursday, 20th May.
The announcement was contained in a statement released by Fabian Benjamin, Head, Public Affairs of the board and obtained by DAILY GIST on Sunday.
He disclosed that the change of date for mock exams would not however affect other schedules including the date for the UTME fixed for 5th to 19th June 2021.
The spokesman informed all stakeholders that the 2021 UTME/DE registration exercise is still ongoing and will end on 15th May 2021.
JAMB noted that it was concerned that some candidates, while trying to generate their profiles, were sending their details wrongly to 55019.
“The right process is to send the word “NIN” allow one space in between, then insert the eleven digits NIN number to 55019 e.g. NIN 00000000000.
The statement added that; “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”.
