Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Postpones 2022 UTME Registration

By John Efosa

Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has postponed the date for the commencement of the registration for the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and Direct Entry (UTME/DE.)

A statement by Head, Public Affairs and Protocol of the Board, Fabian Benjamin, said the registration is now to commence on February 19, 2022 and ends on Saturday, March, 26.

The registration exercise was earlier scheduled to commence on February 12.

The statement said the one week postponement was to allow for fine-tuning and upgrading of the registration procedures.

“The process, which will be concluded within the one-week extension period, is aimed also at accommodating feedbacks from candidates and other stakeholders alike,” the statement said.

Meanwhile, JAMB has also introduced self-registration outlets in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory and Lagos, the nation’s commercial hub, where it said candidates can visit, mount themselves on a computer and do the registration themselves.

The Board said the new measure was to reduce the crowd at the accredited computer-based test (CBT) centers in the two cities.
