The Joint Admissions and Enrollment Board (JAMB) has advised candidates whose registration is incomplete to visit special centers to finalize the process.
JAMB’s chief of media, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, gave the advice in a statement Monday.
Benjamin said the council affected only those who were unable to complete their registration during the scheduled registration period above.
He said that only candidates whose names were collected after giving reasons for the incomplete registration process and had been contacted “are expected to visit the centers.”
“At the end of the period originally scheduled for the Unified Tertiary Enrollment Exam (UTME) and the 2021/2022 Direct Entry (DE) registration on May 15, the registration period was extended.
“Another two weeks elapsed on May 29 were given to accommodate candidates who, largely due to issues related to the newly introduced National Identification Number (NIN) prerequisite, were unable to register.

“An additional extension of two weeks was made to compile the list of all possible candidates who for some reason could not register.
“Candidates who have not registered but who have obtained the profile codes and started the registration process are expected to visit specially designated registration centers to complete registration on Tuesday, June 15.
“The designated registration center for each candidate is sent to them via GSM text message (SMS) and is also available on the Board’s website (www.jamb.gov.ng) starting at 12 noon on Monday, June 14.
“The identification number on each form given to candidates has been used to assign candidates to their registration centers.
“Only candidates who have obtained their profile codes are expected to visit the centers.
“Additionally, the names of the few who have yet to obtain their NINs or profile codes have been submitted to NIMC and will be contacted as soon as they are approved by NIMC.
“Each candidate sent to any CBT center that is not owned by JAMB is expected to pay the registration fee of N1,000 to that CBT center,” Benjamin said.
UTME 2021 is scheduled to start from June 19 to July 3.
