JAMB Blames Candidates for Registration Challenges.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has put the blame on the ‘door step’ of candidates for the problems encountered by prospective candidates in the registration for this year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE) are self-created by the students.

JAMB registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, while speaking on the situation, expressed concern that most of the candidates failed to follow simple instructions put in place by the Board.

This was revealed during a monitoring exercise of some prospective candidates, who were unable to register for the exam during the normal registration window that ended on 29 May 2021.

Oloyede, in a statement, said: “Many of them were sending wrong things and commands for NIN, making NIMC unable to verify such numbers.

“The problems are self-created by the candidates; you are sending messages for a profile code and no credit of N50.

“The exercise is for people to come and defend their claim on the challenges (they have with registration), those who claimed not to have NIN or obtained NIN late.

Recall that JAMB had announced that there will be no general extension of the registration closing date for the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and the Direct Entry (DE), explaining that only those with genuine proof will be granted an extension.
