2021 UTME: JAMB delists six more centres

Board (JAMB) has again delisted six more computer-based test centres from the list of those accredited to participate in the ongoing unified tertiary matriculation examinations which kicked off nationwide on Saturday.

The examination body took the decision on Monday night after appraising its activities on the second day of the examination.

A statement credited to the head of public affairs and protocol unit of JAMB, Fabian Benjamin, noted that the affected centres, like those it earlier delisted on Saturday, performed below the examination body’s expectation.

“The centres are delisted following their below par performance in the conduct of the second day of the 2021 UTME,” Mr Benjamin wrote.

Centres

He listed the affected centres as Dayspring Christian College, Opete, Delta State; Fountain Knowledge International Academy CBT Centre, and Twelve Apostles College, both in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State.

At the federal capital territory, FCT, JAMB delisted Lead British International School, Gwarimpa while Zaria Academy, Zaria, Kaduna State and Muhammed Kamaldeen CBT Centre in Ilorin, Kwara State capital, were also affected.

464,834 candidates

Meanwhile, JAMB said 464,834 candidates out of 1,338,686 candidates registered successfully took part in the examination on Monday.

 

The body had earlier explained that another 75,328 candidates had applied for direct entry forms during the stipulated registration period.

Relief for late registrants

The examination body has also urged the candidates who registered late to visit its website to print their slips indicating their schedules to take part in the examination.
