The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced a new date for the commencement of its 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry(DE) registration exercise.

The registration was earlier slated to start from February 12 to March 19, 2022.

But in a statement on Tuesday, Fabian Benjamin, JAMB spokesperson, said the registration exercise will now hold from February 19 to March 26, 2022.


Benjamin said the development is to allow for more fine-tuning of the upgraded and more user-friendly procedures for candidates’ registration.

“The Board wishes the general public to note that the Board is ever-ready to provide world-class services to Nigerians,” he said.

“Further to the above, the new and improved procedures for the 2022/23 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.


“The candidates are, by this notice, urged to follow keenly the procedures for registration as would be announced by the Board.”

When contacted, Benjamin also confirmed the one-week postponement to TheCable Lifestyle.
