The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board has said it’s contemplating an extension to the registration period and change of date for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.

JAMB registrar, Prof. Is’aq Oloyede, made this known during a zoom meeting with stakeholders on Friday.

Oloyede, however, stated that the Mock examination would begin on May 20 as stipulated earlier.

“Presently, we have 1.2 million candidates that have registered so far. 600,000 candidates also made attempt to register but because of NIN, they could not.

“We are looking at doing an appraisal of all the issues to know if we are extending registration or not.

“Extending registration may not be the solution if we will be able to 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 decide on whether to extend the registration or not.

“After today, we will address the press on the outcome of the meeting on the main examination date and registration,” he said.

Recall that the UTME was earlier scheduled to hold between June 5 and 19.
