JAMB spokesman Dr Fabian Benjamin, on Wednesday, said all potential candidates must provide their NIN at the point of registration for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE) registration.

“This is mandatory for participation in the 2021 registration exercise,” Benjamin said while announcing that JAMB has commenced registration for 2021 exam,” Benjamin said.

“Registration will take place in 700 centres across the country; the list is available in all the state offices of JAMB and on its website at www.jamb.gov.ng.

“The approved schedule for registration and examination are that registration exercise will start on Thursday, April 8 and end on Saturday, May 15, 2021.”

Benjamin noted that the registration for Direct Entry applicants will run concurrently with that of UTME candidates.

He said there will be no extension of time for the sale of the UTME or DE application documents.

The JAMB spokesman said the mock examination will be held on Friday, April 30 for those who indicate interest and are registered before April 24.

He noted that “UTME will hold from Saturday, June 5 to Saturday, June 19, 2021.”
