2021 UTME: JAMB Says Form Not On Sale, Warns Public against Fake News.

The sale of forms for 2021 Unified Tertiary and Matriculation Examination (UTME) has not commenced, The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) reveals.

The examination body made this known on Monday, January 4, through a weekly bulletin of the office of the registrar. JAMB also warned the prospective candidates to be wary of the rumor mongers and fraudsters, adding that the clarification became necessary because of fake news. JAMB said the date for the sale of the 2021 UTME will be announced soon.

While emphasizing that it has channels of communicating to the members of the public, the body said it has not delegated people or group of persons to handle the sale on its behalf, The Nation reports.

Excerpts from its statement read:

“The clarification became necessary following fake news that the board has begun the sale and was urging prospective applicants to procure same from some nebulous selling outlets.

“The public is to note that the news of the purported sale of the registration forms is false and an attempt to mislead the public.”

The examination board also attributed the delay in the sale of the form to the prevailing COVID-19 crisis in the country. JAMB, however, disclosed it would conclude arrangements soon on the sale of the form.
