The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced a new date for the commencement of registration for this year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry in the country.
JAMB had earlier announced that the 2022 UTME registration would commence on February 12.
The Board’s Head of Public Affairs and Protocol, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, who disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday, said the registration would now start on February 19 and end on March 26.
He said the one week postponement was to enable JAMB to fine-tune the procedures for candidates’ registration.

“Further to the above, the new and improved procedures for the 2022 UTME Registration would be made available on the Board’s website, its weekly bulletin as well as other media outlets on Monday, 14th February, 2022.”
