2024 UTME: JAMB Registers 141,018 Candidates In One Week, Pays CBT Centres Over N98m

Warns Parents, Guardians To Stay Away From Registration Centres

In a remarkable surge of activity, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) announced that a staggering 141,018 candidates were successfully registered for the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE) within the first week of commencement. This disclosure was made by JAMB in its weekly bulletin last Friday.

The financial prowess of the Board was not left unnoticed, as it reported a substantial revenue of N3.030 billion during the initial week. The influx of funds can be attributed to a combination of facilities sales, Professional Registration Centres (PRC) service charges, and deposits for 2024 registration e-pins.

A detailed breakdown of the financial transactions reveals that the Board allocated N98,712,600 to 564 Computer Based Test (CBT) Centres. This amount, charged at N700 per candidate, was dispersed among 519 Non-JAMB CBT Centres and 45 JAMB Registration Centres. The efficient utilization of technology in the registration process continues to streamline the examination system, ensuring a smoother experience for both candidates and the Board.


However, amidst the success of the registration process, the Board issued a stern warning to parents and guardians to refrain from interfering with the registration exercise. This caution came in response to an incident where a graduate of Business Administration from Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, was apprehended at one of the Board’s Professional Registration Centres (PRC).

The individual in question, a woman, was caught attempting to procure a registration e-PIN on behalf of her brother. She justified her actions by explaining that her brother was located in Kaduna, and she, being in Abuja, aimed to facilitate the registration process on his behalf. JAMB, however, deemed this act a severe breach of the ethical standards set for the registration exercise, emphasizing its potential to compromise the integrity of the entire process.

JAMB reiterated its strict policy against parents and guardians physically attending registration and examination centres. The Board emphasized its readiness to impose sanctions on any individual or groups found violating this directive. This latest warning serves as a reminder of the importance of maintaining the integrity and fairness of the UTME registration process.
