The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said that the 2021 UTME Mock examination earlier scheduled to hold on Saturday, April 30, 2021, has now been postponed to Thursday, May 20, 2021.

The head, Public Affairs, and Protocol, Dr. Fabian Benjamin in a statement on Sunday in Abuja, said this change of date was a result of some ongoing adjustments in the Board’s operational processes.

Benjamin, however, noted that the change would not affect other schedules including the date for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) fixed for June 5 to 19, 2021.

“Candidates who have registered and have chosen to sit the mock and other critical stakeholders are to note this change of date,” he said.

In the same vein, the board informed all stakeholders that the 2021 UTME and Direct Entry Registration exercise is ongoing and expected to end on May 15, 2021.

“The board has, however, noted with concern that some candidates in trying to generate their profiles are sending their details wrongly to 55019.

“The right process is to send the word ‘NIN’ allow one space in between, then insert the eleven digits NIN number to 55019 e.g. NIN 00000000000.

“Any other process is wrong and would not generate the profile code for the candidate. It is also necessary for the candidate to know that only the SIM that is linked to his/her NIN can be used to send the NIN to 55019,” the statement said.
