In order to finish this process, the Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) has advised applicants with incomplete registration to visit special centres.
Dr Fabian Benjamin, head of JAMB’s media, gave a statement on Monday in which he gave advice.
Benjamin said the advice was only for those who were not able, during the previous registration period, to complete their registration.
He stated that only candidates whose names have been compiled and contacted for reasons of incomplete registration are planned to visit the Centres.
The time limit for registration for the Unified Tertiary Tertiary Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE) Examination was extended at the end of the time initially scheduled for 2021/2022 on 15 May.
“Another two weeks, which expired on 29 May, were allowed to receive candidates who could not register, largely because of issues related to the newly introduced National Identification Number (NIN) condition.
The list of all potential candidates who were unable to register for any reason was extended by another two weeks.
“Candidates who did not register but secured the profile codes and started to sign in should visit the specially designated registration centers on Tuesday, 15 June to finish the registration.
“Every candidate will receive a designated registration center via GSM (SMS) messages and will also be available from 12 noon on the Board website (www.jamb.gov.ng) on Monday, 14 June.
‘To assign candidates to their centers of registration, the identification number of each form has been used.
“The centers should be visited only by candidates who have secured their profile codes.
Furthermore, the names of the few who have still not received their NIN codes or profile codes were forwarded to NIMC and contacted after clearance by NIMC.
“Each applicant to a CBT facility owned by the non-JAMB shall pay N1000 for the registration fee to that CBT centre,” stated Benjamin.
The UTME 2021 is planned to start on 19 June through 3 July.
