paragraph

No Biometrics/Registration, No UTME Examination

paragraph
Without my biometric can I still write the UTME Examination? NO
paragraph
It is important you know that during Jamb registration process, you will be asked for your persona data. This is very important in the registration process although, during registration process, some candidate do find it difficult to get their finger print scanned and also have issues with their personal data.
paragraph
Jamb has mentioned that any candidate with biometric issues at the point of registration would not be allowed to write the UTME exam. It stated that the only solution to those with the problem of biometrics is to go to Jamb National Head Quarter in Abuja to get registered. The candidate will also sit for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) in Abuja.
paragraph
I want to implore you to make sure that you carefully submit your biometric data and make sure there is no error in any of your personal data else you might have issue in the future when you get admission into the university and you want to do your clearance.
paragraph
Similarly, Jamb (Joint Admission and Matriculation Board) stressed the fact that it would not entertain any form of flight mode registration and offline exemption. It made this declaration because it has empowered all the accredited Computer-Based Test (CBT) centers for real-time online registration and directed prospective UTME candidate to register at only the center Jamb is partnering with.

paragraph
For those of you who know how to take risk I will advise you to stay away from biometric abnormalities. Jamb has mentioned that any candidate with biometric abnormalities or challenged can only be registered and can only sit for their examination at the Jamb National Headquarters, Abuja on the last day of the national examination calendar.
paragraph
The reason why I said you should not risk having a biometric abnormalities is the fact that no candidate would be allowed to even enter the examination hall or sit for the examination if his or her biometrics cannot be verified as the system or computer would not permit or process any examination without biometric verification.
paragraph

paragraph

Price of Jamb (UTME) registration form

paragraph
The fee for Jamb (UTME) registration 2024 covers fee for the reading text-book, fees to CBT center service charge with or without mock, it covers fees of registration center service charge and CBT (Examination) service charge with the UTME application fee inclusively which cost N3, 500.
paragraph
This fees would be collected by the Board (Jamb) then the board would remit what is due to the CBT centers. Jamb is doing this so that candidates would not be paying anything at the registration point.
paragraph
Below is the breakdown of jamb registration (UTME) fee:
paragraph
UTME/ Direct Entry application fee = N3, 500
paragraph
Reading text book = N500
paragraph
CBT Center Service Charge (without Mock) = N1, 700
paragraph
CBT Center Service Charge (with Mock) = N2, 700
paragraph
Registration Center Service Charge = N700
paragraph
CBT (Examination) service charge = N1000
paragraph
This means that the grand total payment without mock = N5, 700
paragraph
Grand total payment (with mock) = N6, 700
paragraph
Direct entry student application fee = 4, 700
paragraph
What this means is that there will be two pin available in any outlets: the first one is N6, 700 UTME Application Document (with Mock) while the second one is N5, 700 UTME Application Document (without Mock). Please do not allow any Registration center inflate the price unless otherwise.
paragraph
Candidate should be aware that they have the options of paying through Banks, Mobile Money Operators and online payment on the Jamb portal through Remita/interswitch.
paragraph
Any candidate who intends to purchase the e-pin must have obtained the National Identification Number (NIN) as the gateway to the registration because the candidate would first create a profile by sending their NIN, followed by a space, then the eleven-digit number (NIN) to 55019 or 66019.
paragraph

Jamb CBT registration center

paragraph
Are you a prospective UTME (Jamb) candidate be aware that all transactions at the CBT centers would be cashless to prevent warehousing and extortion of candidates. Some center have imbibed the habit of extorting candidate hard earned money because they are ignorant and inadequately.
paragraph
Candidate should also be aware that the cell phone number they used for sending the NIN to 55019 is automatically tied to the candidate’s name given by the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC). The number will also be used by jamb for proper communication related to the candidate’s application and examination. I want to advice that you use your personal number for the registration and not any other persons number.
paragraph
After candidate have sent a message to 55019, such candidate will receive on their phones a 10-digit profile code and the registered name with NIMC, this would be presented at the point of procurement of e-pins when candidates finishes the registration, the e-PIN will be sent as a text message to the candidates after the payment of all necessary fees.
paragraph
Candidates are to present the e-PIN at any JAMB-accredited CBT center for registration. What this means is that you need to get your e-PIN before you can start the registration process with Jamb.
paragraph
Recently, there have been large number of candidate who come out in their mass to register for jamb and sometimes, the CBT centers is choked up and time consuming to register the large number of candidates. The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (Jamb) has granted approval for two optional attached registration center.
paragraph
What this means is that a CBT centers on request is allowed to have two additional attached registration centers within the state although the CBT centers should clearly state their address and indicate specific details, such as Street Name, Plot, House Number etc. for ease of identification. The center should also have a clear signboard which should indicate the name of the center.
paragraph
Jamb added this new development so as to eliminate the need to move SIMs or routers from the original designated centers. Jamb also mention that the provision of attached registration centers is only available to center that apply for extra attached registration centers. Any violation of the guidelines would lead to the revocation of the license of that center.
paragraph

UTME (Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination) registration option for the physically challenged

paragraph
Does the physically challenged have the opportunity to write the UTME Examination? YES Jamb has started fostering inclusiveness in its policy. This is to ensure that there is a level playing field for all candidate irrespective of your social status and physical status. Are you physically challenged? do not worry you can still register and write the UTME Examination.
paragraph
At the point of registration, a list of Examination Center is available for any candidate who indicates that he or she is blind, to choose any center that is close to his or her residence. Jamb has also created option of sitting for the examination for the physically challenge candidate this option include Braille, Recorded or Read Aloud.
