GoldenNewsNg reported that JAMB kicked off its 2021 UTME nationwide on Saturday, June 19.
However, the commencement of the examination did not go without hitches as the board announced that it delisted 25 computer-based test centres from the list of more than 800 earlier scheduled to take part in the ongoing exam. The examination body said the decision followed the centres’ non-compliance to the laid-down procedures and the difficulties encountered by candidates posted to the centres.
It said the NIN requirement made it impossible for some prospective candidates to register, leading to the reduction in the number of registered candidates and the proceeds generated from sales of forms. The board’s spokesman, Dr Fabian Benjamin, made this known on Sunday, June 20.
