JAMB gives update on Sale Of 2021/2022 UTME Forms. There have been speculations over whether or not the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) will sell UTME form 2021. This is considering the ASUU strike coupled with the FG’s lockdown of schools since March last year.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) is a Nigerian entrance examination board for tertiary-level institutions. The board conducts the entrance Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination for prospective undergraduates into Nigerian universities. The board is also charged with the responsibility to administer similar examinations for applicants to Nigerian public and private monotechnics, polytechnics, and colleges of educations. All of these candidates must have obtained the West Africa School Certificate, now West African Examinations Council, WAEC, or its equivalent, National Examination Council (Nigeria), NECO
The pioneer Registrar was Mr. Michael Saidu Angulu who served from inception in 1978 to 1986
However, the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), has disclosed that it would go ahead with the sale of the 2021/2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) form, despite the seeming logjam in the academic calendar of most federal universities.
JAMB Public Relations Officer, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, revealed this to newsmen Last Friday in Abuja. According to him, that UTME is a yearly exercise and as such will not be put on hold.
He equally added that universities have concluded about 60 percent of the admissions for the 2020/2021 session.
He, however, did not disclose when the board will likely commence the sales of the UTME/DE form for 2021.
