2021/2022 UTME Forms Not Out-JAMB Warns Applicants

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board ,(JAMB) has warned its prospective applicants to beweanry of fake news circulating in some quarters that the 2021/2022 UTME Forms are on sale

It cautioned that any ongoing sale of forms and registration was fraudulent and not associated with JAMB.

The examination body in its bulletin on Monday, said that the date for the sale of the forms and commencement of the examination would be announced on March 24

JAMB said it has concluded all arrangements to begin the sale of 2021/2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE) registration forms.

The examination board however blamed the delay for the 2021 exercise on  the COVID-19 pandemic.

The bulletin reads in parts:
“This year’s exercise, unlike the previous years, is peculiar because of the series of disruptions to virtually all aspects of public life occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic."

“It is with this extant reality in mind that the delay is being experienced, with the board embarking on series of strategic adjustments, aimed at ensuring that academic activities are not unduly impacted"

“The public is to note that the 2021 UTME/DE application forms are not yet on sale. Anybody advertising anything to the contrary is a fraudster.”

Meanwhile JAMB says it has apprehended one Okogu Ambrose for illegally registering candidates.

The board said Ambrose was caught after collecting payment from innocent candidates under the guise of registering them for the yet-to-commence 2021/2022 UTME exercise.

“Ambrose is a serial offender, who was arrested in 2020 for extorting money for which he had no authorisation to execute.
