The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board on Saturday announced the commencement of registration of candidates for the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and Direct Entry to tertiary education institutions in Nigeria.
The decision came barely 48 hours after it had stopped the exercise over technical challenges of the National Identification Number.
But a terse statement issued by the spokesperson for JAMB, Dr Fabian Benjamin, said registration for the examination had now commenced in full swing as all the issues had been resolved.
“It was only put on hold to resolve the technical hitches. Registration is now in full swing,” he said, adding that some candidates had successfully registered for the examination.
On Thursday, Benjamin apologised for the delay in the commencement of the registration exercise which, he said, was “speculated” to begin the same day.
According to him, the delay was caused by some unforeseen circumstances occasioned by its determined effort to have NIN integration.
Candidates can now proceed to an approved CBT/accredited centers to go their Registration
