The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced a mop-up exam for 2021 UTME. According to board, the mop-up UTME, which is a computer-based standardized examination for prospective undergraduates in Nigeria, will hold on August 6, 2021 in select locations across the country.

Candidates are to print their slip for the mop-up exam via the procedure below from August 1st;
The board equally stated that no candidate whose result has been duly released will be rescheduled for another examination contrary to the sponsored fake news being circulated on the social (and a few mischievous conventional) media.
The candidates for the mop-up are candidates who experienced biometric verification challenges, those who genuinely missed the just-concluded Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination as a result of a clash with this year’s NABTEB exam, and those that had genuine technical issues.
