THE Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has instructed candidates scheduled to take the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) in delisted centres to print new examination notification slips.
Last Saturday, JAMB had delisted 24 centres over failure to conduct the 2021 examination. However, the exam body has now told candidates to start printing their notifications from June 20, 2021, for their new schedule date and time.
The directive was announced by Fabian Benjamin, Protocol and Public Affairs, on Sunday.
“This applies only to centres delisted. You will recall that 24 centres were delisted for performing below the tolerable limit of the Board, while over 40 others were put on the watchlist,” the statement read.
The 2021 UMTE was being conducted in 777 designated centres across the country before the delisting of 24 centres.
Over 1.3 million candidates registered to take part in this year’s examination.
