The Joint Admission and Matriculations Board JAMB have set aside April 20 to 30th, 2022, for the commencement of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).
The mock examination is expected to hold on April 2nd, 2022, while registration for the examination would commence from 12th February and end on 19th March 2022, respectively.
The information was contained in a weekly bulletin released by JAMB’s director of media and public relations, Fabian Benjamin on Monday.
We also gathered that the Board has resolved to refund N4,000 which many candidates paid but were unsuccessful in completing the registration process for the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination including the Direct Entry Examinations.
“This is to notify all 2021 candidates who had deposited a draft of four thousand naira (N4,000) for late registration for the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and Direct Entry but were unable to complete the registration process owing to no fault of the Board, even after the Board had extended the registration period twice, to visit the Board’s Website and complete a form for the refund of the value of the draft they submitted to the Board.
“The above candidates are to click on the link 2021 UTME/DE Unregistered Candidates Bank Draft Recapture and fill the spaces after which they would key in the token sent to the phone numbers they had submitted during the submission of their drafts. It is this token that would be used to access a form on which they will fill in their account details for the refund of the value of the draft. Candidates are to provide these details within the next two weeks from the date of this publication.
“A text message containing OTP has been sent to the affected candidates besides this notification, “the bulletin added.
The UTME, conducted by JAMB is a uniform entry-level examination for candidates seeking tertiary education.
