Updated: Jan 24

Registration for the JAMB UTME 2021/2022 will begin on 18th January, 2021 and end on 19th February, 2021. The Computer-Based Test (CBT) for candidates will take place from 14th March till 4th April, 2021. This is according to an official announcement by Professor Oloyede, Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) at a meeting with owners of accredited CBT centres at the University of Lagos.

The registration exercise will go on for four (4) weeks ending February 19, 2021. Prof Oloyede added that the board has decided to disallow cyber cafe operators from registering candidates due to cases of extortion and surcharging on the part of operators. Candidates are therefore advised in their best interests to only register at any of the JAMB accredited CBT centres across the country. Candidates who register outside of the approved centres will be disqualified.
