JAMB Mop-Up Exam 2021: The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has disclosed plans to conduct a Mop-up Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) for 18,000 (Eighteen Thousand) candidates in some chosen locations around the country.
According to the announcement by JAMB, the candidates scheduled for the examination, which will be taken on Friday, August 6th 2021, are being informed via both text messages on their registered phone numbers and their JAMB profiles. Fabian Benjamin, the JAMB spokespersons, who revealed the news on Thursday in Abuja, said the candidates can confirm using their registration number on www.jamb.gov.ng/2021mopup.
As disclosed by the JAMB spokesperson, the rescheduling of the exam for the 18, 000 candidates was caused by the by the result of a detailed investigation and analysis of the high-successful 2021 UTME and consultation with the National Examination Council (NECO) in regard to the timetable of the ongoing SSCE.
For the purpose of clarity, according to the JAMB official, candidates whose examination results have been released will not be part of the rescheduled examination as against the fake news being carried around on social media platforms. He described the fake news being spread around as sponsored and mischievous.
Meanwhile, the candidates expected to take part in the August 6th 2021 mop-up examination are in the following categories:
i. Candidates who were not scheduled for the examination because of their inability to register and provide the compulsory National Identity Number (NIN) or profile codes before the close of the registration exercise, and, thus, had to buy Bank Drafts instead of the normal vending of PINS.
ii. Some of the candidates who had issues with biometric verification, or who failed biometric verification on the date of examination and could not take the exam. For these set of candidates, a screening arrangement has been made to confirm the authenticity of their claims.
iii. Candidates who could not take part in the examination because of the clash of timetables of the then ongoing NABTEB examination and UTME, whose information have been confirmed and sent directly to JAMB by NABTEB.
iv. Candidates who have been verified by JAMB to have encountered genuine rescheduling/technical challenges, as was the case in 30 of the 760 centres used for the examination.
Note that your JAMB slip is to be printed from www.jamb.gov.ng using your candidate number from Sunday, August 1st 2021.
