The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board on Monday stated that it would refund the N4,000 deposit paid by candidates who failed to complete the registration process for the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and the Direct Entry Examinations.
The board made this known in its latest bulletin made available to The PUNCH on Monday by the board’s director of media and public relations, Dr. Fabian Benjamin.
The bulletin partly reads, “This is to notify all 2021 candidates who had deposited a draft of four thousand naira (N4,000) for late registration for the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and Direct Entry but were unable to complete the registration process owing to no fault of the Board, even after the Board had extended the registration period twice, to visit the Board’s Website https://www.jamb.gov.ng, and complete a form for the refund of the value of the draft they submitted to the Board.
“The above candidates are to click on the link 2021 UTME/DE Unregistered Candidates Bank Draft Recapture and fill the spaces after which they would key in the token sent to the phone numbers they had submitted during the submission of their drafts.
“It is this token that would be used to access a form on which they will fill in their account details for the refund of the value of the draft. Candidates are to provide these details within the next two weeks from the date of this publication.
