JAMB Set to Organize Mop-Up Exams For 18,000 Candidates.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has announced it will organize a mop-up examination for 18,000 selected candidates across the federation.

This was revealed through a statement released on the board’s website that the decision to reschedule the mop-up examination was due to the inability of thousands of candidates to secure the mandatory National Identity Number (NIN), which is a pre-requisite for registering for the exams.

However, a statement released on the website of the board has indicated that candidates with genuine reasons for missing the examinations would be given a chance on the 6th of August.

The statement reads, “Following a detailed investigation and careful analysis of the highly-successful 2021 UTME, and with due consultation (resulting in gracious concession) with the National Examination Council concerning the timetable of the council’s ongoing SSCE, JAMB has scheduled a Mop-up UTME for Friday, 6th August 2021, in some selected locations across the nation.”

It would be recalled that the release of the Unified Tertiary Matriculations Examination result by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board elicited reactions from stakeholders, including parents, over the low marks scored by candidates who sat for the exam.
