The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) is contemplating rescheduling this year’s registration deadline and Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) dates.

JAMB registrar Prof. Is’aq Oloyede who revealed this via zoom meeting on Friday however, said the May 20 mock examination will take place.

The UTME had been slated to hold between June 5 and 19.

According to Prof. Oloyede, “Presently, we have 1.2million candidates that have registered but we expect 1.9million. 600,000 candidates had made attempt to register but because of NIN they could not. We want to do an appraisal of all the issues to know if we are extending registration or not.

“Extending registration may not be the solution if we found out that we can give 80 per cent of those who have made attempt another password, then there will be no need to extend registration.

“We have to determine where the problem is coming before we can say we are extending. After today, we will address the press tomorrow on the outcome of the meeting on the main examination date and registration. We want to assess what is happening.”
