2021 UTME: JAMB Set To Hold Rescheduled Exam For 18,000 Candidates

Some categories of candidates who registered to take part in the 2021 unified tertiary matriculation examination (UTME) but are yet to sit the examination for various ‘genuine’ reasons have been rescheduled to sit the examination on August 6.

This is coming two days after the examination body announced the withdrawal of results of 14 candidates and withheld 90 others’ for allegedly being involved in various forms of examination malpractice.

In a statement issued on Thursday by JAMB and signed by its spokesperson, Fabian Benjamin, a total of 18,000 candidates will participate in the rescheduled examination.

The statement listed the concerned candidates to include those “who could not be initially scheduled for examination owing to their inability to timely procure and supply their mandatory NINs or profile codes,” and “who encountered peculiar biometric verification problems, or who failed biometric verification on the examination date,” among others.

The statement issued by the examination body is reproduced below:
