In statement by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, Head of Media and Protocol, Dr Fabian Benjamin, the 2021 UTME/DE registration earlier scheduled to commence April 8th, 2021 has been suspended.
According to him the suspension on the 2021 UTME/DE registration was caused by some unforeseen circumstances in linking the NIN with the whole registration process as the board was determined effort to have a NIN integration.
He said the board wants to ensure that all processes are completed before the commencement and this was the reason the board is yet to publish the official details for the registration exercise as that is the surest indication of the beginning of the exercise as it has all the step by step process that candidates are required to follow.
He finally said that the challenge is being resolved and once that is done and the process of smooth PIN vending and candidate access to the registration app for the 2021 UTME/DE is completed, the full processes shall commence.
Candidates are therefore requested to exercise some patience.
“The process shall be up and running shortly for our advertisement to be rollout so that candidates can begin the creation of profile,” he added.
This means candidates cannot create profile for registration until the issue is resolved.
Candidates should not take this as an opportunity to relax as the issue will be resolved soon in few days and the whole registration process will fully commence.
