2021 UTME: JAMB to begin sale of forms this week

The joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, says it has concluded arrangements to roll out the sale of its 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and Direct Entry application forms.


JAMB disclosed this in its Weekly Bulletin made available to newsmen in Abuja by its Head of Media, Dr Fabia Benjamin.


The board said the dates for the sale of the documents, the conduct of mock examination and the UTME will be announced latest on Wednesday, 24th March 2021.


It noted that unlike what was obtainable in previous years, this year’s exercise is peculiar owing to a series of disruptions to virtually all aspects of public life occasioned by the COVID -19 pandemic.


“It is with this extant reality in mind that the delay is being experienced with the Board embarking on a series of strategic adjustments aimed at ensuring that academic activities are not unduly impacted.


“The public is to note that the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and the Direct Entry (DE) application documents are not yet on sale,” it said.


JAMB also warned that “Anybody advertising anything to the contrary is a fraudster.”
