In this article, we'll be seeing all you need to know about the 2021/2022 UTME examination, including information regarding the registration, registration fee and examination dates. The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) is a Nigerian entrance examination board for tertiary-level institutions. The board is in charge of conducting the entrance Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) for prospective undergraduates into Nigerian universities, colleges of educations, polytechnics and monotechnics.
