When he was speaking, JAMB’s spokesperson, Fabian Benjamin stated that registration has now fully commenced. He added that “It was only put on hold to resolve the technical hitches. Registration is now in full swing.’
JAMB postponed the registration for the 2021 UTME and DE due to the inability of candidates to create their profiles.
However, JAMB has explained why it introduced the use of the National Identity Number (NIN) for the registration of the 2021 UTME.
The registrar of JAMB, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, on Friday, March 26, said the new policy will help checkmate examination malpractices.
While Speaking at a virtual meeting with owners of Computer Based Test Centres and service providers, Oloyede disclosed that the use of NIN for the UTME was also for security reasons.
