The supplementary UTME is now scheduled to take place on Saturday, June 22, 2024. The board has taken extensive measures to ensure that all affected candidates have ample time to prepare and participate in the rescheduled exams.

To prevent future disruptions, JAMB has implemented several technological and administrative enhancements. These measures include improved biometric verification systems and enhanced technical support at examination centers.
