The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) on Monday, said it is ready for the sales commencement of 2021/2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), and Direct Entry (DE), registration forms, as it has concluded all Preparation arrangements.
This disclosure was made by the board in its Weekly Bulletin, Vol. 2, No. 15, made available to Journalists on Monday in Abuja.
According to JAMB, the sales of the forms were delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however, no later than March 24, 2021, the sales of forms and conducting of examinations will be announced.
The board, also adviced the entire public against false sales of forms and registration, as it has apprehended one Okogu Ambrose for illegally registering candidates for the yet to commence 2021/2022 examinations.
It said: “This year’s exercise, unlike the previous years, is peculiar because of the series of disruptions to virtually all aspects of public life occasioned by COVID-19 pandemic.
“It is with this extant reality in mind that the delay is being experienced, with the board embarking on series of strategic adjustments, aimed at ensuring that academic activities are not unduly impacted.
“The public is to note that the 2021 UTME/DE application forms are not yet on sale. Anybody advertising anything to the contrary is a fraudster.
