JAMB officially concludes UTME 2021 on July 3rd

The conduct of the Unified Tertiary and Matriculation Examination, UTME 2021 will officially come to an end on July 3rd 2021 as earlier announced and reaffirmed by the board’s director of publicity and spokesperson, Dr Fabian Benjamin.
In his comments, he said JAMB will officially conclude the UTME 2021 on July 3rd and the information peddled around, regarding reschedule of exam for candidates who scored below 170 is not true.
He said, the board has not reschedule fresh examination for any candidate or categories of candidates.



However, the board is yet to address the public regards the mass failure of students, particularly the science students, the news in circulation has it that only 14% passed above 200 which means a whooping 86% failed.

These figures are terrifying and if maintained, may be universities and other tertiary institutions might have to lower their cut-off marks.
While JAMB in 2009 and 2016 had a remark of exams after the release of results resulting in increase in score, we shall keep our fingers crossed to see what will happen this year as well. Precisely in 2016, after few weeks of release of results, JAMB later added fourty (40) marks to the score of most candidates.

Even though the addition or upgrading is not done for all candidates but it was done to most candidates score.

But one thing is certain, as JAMB officially conclude the examination, it means there will be no more examination meaning UTME 2021 is concluded.


As known to many if not all, after JAMB next is POST UTME then admission but as majority would think that with the below 180 and 160 score of majority, all chances of admission are dashed but this is absolutely untrue.

First thing to know is that high UTME score does not guarantee admission while low UTME score does not mean no admission, all you need is the right information at the right time.

I have seen many candidates jubilating and relaxing after scoring over 300 in UTME believing admission is secured but was later disappointed with no admission. I have also seen students with 180+ UTME score offered admission on merit, so having the right information is paramount in admission seeking process.

Do not fall into the hand of scammers in the name of JAMB upgrade, there’s nothing like JAMB upgrade, we have noticed a lot of JAMB upgrade post on Facebook groups and social media looking for students to defraud.

Do not fall into the scam, read our post on JAMB upgrade to understand how it’s been done and how it’s a scam.
