JAMB Commences 2024/2025 UTME Registration Today

JAMB Commences 2024/2025 UTME Registration Today: New Procedures and Innovations Unveiled

The Joint Admission and Matriculations Board (JAMB) is set to kick off the registration process for the 2024/2025 Universal Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) today Monday, January 15th, with the registration window closing on February 24th, 2024. The JAMB Registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, assured the public that preparations have been meticulously made to ensure a seamless registration exercise.

During a briefing with media executives in Lagos, Professor Oloyede outlined key details of the registration process and introduced several innovative measures to enhance the efficiency and inclusivity of the examination system.

Logistics and Advertisement:

The JAMB Registrar affirmed that all necessary logistics have been put in place to facilitate a smooth registration process. He announced that public advertisements outlining the stages of registration would commence in national newspapers, providing comprehensive guidance for both UTME and Direct Entry candidates.

Registration Procedures:

Candidates are required to create a profile through the National Identity Number (NIN) at various Computer Based Test (CBT) centers across the country. The use of JAMB USS CODES 55019 or 66019 is mandated to generate the profile, with the Registrar emphasizing that only one shortcode is allowed to prevent multiple charges. A unique verification tool requires candidates to provide thumbprints to conclude the registration process.

Direct entry candidates will undergo registration at JAMB offices, and the payment of the N3500 registration fee will be entirely cashless to eliminate the risk of extortion. CBT centers are authorized to collect charges for additional services due to the rise in energy costs, with strict penalties for any centers found engaging in extortion.

Innovations for Accessibility:

In a noteworthy move, JAMB has introduced e-books and audiobooks for exam preparation, specifically catering to the needs of People Living With Disabilities (PLWD). The board has invested N25 million in payments to book authors to support candidates, particularly visually and auditory impaired individuals. Furthermore, JAMB will take responsibility for the accommodation and transportation of PLWD candidates at its special center in Abuja.

Caution Against Monetary Awards:

Professor Oloyede appealed to Nigerians to refrain from giving monetary awards to candidates with the highest scores, cautioning that high scores do not necessarily guarantee admission. He highlighted instances of candidates scoring low marks in individual university tests after achieving high scores in JAMB, leading to fraudulent practices. The Registrar disclosed that three candidates are currently facing court trials, while one candidate, Mmesoma Ejikeme, has been banned for three years.

As JAMB opens the doors for the 2024/2025 UTME registration, the innovative measures and enhanced accessibility reflect the board’s commitment to conducting fair, transparent, and inclusive examinations. Candidates are urged to follow the outlined procedures diligently to ensure a successful registration process.
