JAMB Commences 2024/2025 UTME Registration Today: Enhanced Procedures and Inclusive Measures 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, January 15th. The registration window will remain open until February 24th, 2024, as confirmed by Professor Ishaq Oloyede, the JAMB Registrar.

In a briefing with media executives in Lagos, Professor Oloyede assured the public that meticulous logistics have been put in place to ensure a seamless registration process. He emphasized that the board has perfected arrangements to make the registration exercise efficient and hassle-free for candidates.

As part of the registration procedures, candidates are required to create a profile using their National Identity Number (NIN) at various Computer Based Test (CBT) centers nationwide. Professor Oloyede highlighted that candidates should utilize either the JAMB USS CODES 55019 or 66019 to generate their profiles, emphasizing the importance of using only one sort code to avoid multiple charges.


Furthermore, the registration process mandates candidates to undergo a unique verification tool, requiring them to thumbprint to complete the registration. Direct entry candidates will also be accommodated in the registration process, with special provisions at JAMB offices.

To streamline the payment process, Professor Oloyede emphasized that the N3500 registration fee will be cashless, aiming to prevent any form of extortion. Additionally, CBT centers have been permitted to charge for services rendered, considering the current surge in energy costs. However, centers found engaging in extortion of candidates will face penalties.

This year, JAMB introduces e-books and audiobooks to assist candidates with disabilities, particularly visually and auditory impaired individuals. The board has allocated N25 million to compensate book authors, ensuring that candidates have accessible resources for exam preparation.

Addressing concerns about candidates with the highest scores, Professor Oloyede urged Nigerians to refrain from giving monetary awards to top performers, emphasizing that high scores in JAMB do not necessarily guarantee qualification for admission into universities. He revealed ongoing court trials involving three candidates and a three-year ban for a candidate, Mmesoma Ejikeme, who engaged in fraudulent practices.

Moreover, JAMB pledged to take care of accommodation and transportation for People Living With Disabilities (PLWD) at its special center in Abuja, showcasing a commitment to inclusivity and support for all candidates. As the registration process unfolds, JAMB remains focused on maintaining the integrity of examinations while providing a conducive environment for candidates to excel.

In addition to waiving registration fees, JAMB will introduce audio books for blind candidates as a measure to enhance accessibility and comprehension. The decision to provide audio books was inspired by recommendations made during the first National Conference on Equal Opportunity of Access to Higher Education in Nigeria. The digital adaptation of traditional reading materials will be available in popular audio formats such as MP3, WMV, and WMA, compatible with various devices capable of streaming audio records.

Prof Oloyede explained, “This will help the blind candidates to easily understand the subject/text,” emphasizing the importance of providing necessary tools to facilitate an effective learning experience for visually impaired candidates.

Moreover, to accommodate blind candidates further, diagrams will be excluded from their examination questions. This thoughtful adjustment aims to ensure that blind candidates are not disadvantaged in the assessment process.

For the 2024 UTME, JAMB will also provide a free e-copy of the reading text for all categories of candidates. This digital resource aims to support candidates in their preparation for the examination, aligning with JAMB’s commitment to fairness and accessibility.

Registration for the 2024 UTME is set to commence on January 15, with a registration fee of N6,200 for candidates not participating in the mock examination. Candidates opting for the mock examination will pay N7,700 for the registration process. This move by JAMB reinforces the board’s dedication to fostering inclusivity, breaking barriers, and ensuring that educational opportunities are accessible to all, regardless of physical abilities or financial constraints.

JAMB Registrar Applauds Federal Government’s Efforts in Uncovering Fake Universities and Certificates

The Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, has expressed commendation for the Federal Government’s proactive steps in investigating and addressing the issue of fake universities and certificates within the country.

In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ibadan on Friday, Prof. Oloyede acknowledged the challenges facing the education sector in Nigeria while highlighting the positive strides being made in its improvement.

“I think the honourable minister (of education) is doing the right thing. In Nigeria, at times, when we run into one small problem, the solutions could be more disastrous. He has done the right thing by constituting a committee to look into the problem and recommend ways out. The committee will come up with facts, and we can now work on those facts,” commented Prof. Oloyede.


The JAMB Registrar emphasized the importance of addressing the issues surrounding fake universities and certificates, recognizing the potential negative impact on the education sector. He applauded the decision to form a committee, noting that this approach would lead to factual insights that can serve as a foundation for effective solutions.

While acknowledging the ongoing efforts to enhance the quality of education in the country, Prof. Oloyede stressed the collective responsibility of everyone involved in the sector. He affirmed JAMB’s commitment to maintaining the stability of innovations aimed at improving the quality of the organization’s work.

“We will also ensure that our services are better delivered,” stated Prof. Oloyede, underlining the commitment of JAMB to continually refine and enhance its services for the benefit of students and the education sector as a whole.

The commendation from the JAMB Registrar reflects a collaborative spirit and positive engagement with the government’s initiatives to address challenges in the education system, showcasing a commitment to fostering a conducive environment for learning and academic excellence in Nigeria.

Speaking during his visit to a newly acquired building in Lagos, Nigeria, the Registrar highlighted the importance of the acquisition in expanding the services of the examination body. Additionally, he took the opportunity to shed light on the steps taken by JAMB to ensure a rigorous and transparent examination process, particularly in the wake of the certificate scandal.

The Registrar emphasized that JAMB adheres to due process meticulously, leaving no room for irregularities in the examination and admission procedures. He underscored the significance of maintaining the credibility of the examination system to uphold the trust of candidates, institutions, and the public at large.

“We are aware of recent reports regarding certificate irregularities, and I want to assure the public that JAMB takes such matters seriously.

JAMB, as the country’s foremost examination body, plays a pivotal role in the admission process for tertiary institutions. The assurance from the Registrar comes at a critical time when concerns about the authenticity of academic certificates have surfaced.

Prof. Oloyede affirmed that the recent acquisition of a new facility in Lagos is part of JAMB’s strategic plan to enhance its services and accommodate the growing needs of candidates and educational institutions. The expanded infrastructure is expected to contribute to a more efficient and effective examination process.


As JAMB continues to evolve, the Registrar reassured the public that the board remains committed to upholding the highest standards of integrity, transparency, and fairness. The measures taken by JAMB aim to not only secure the examination process but also foster confidence in the academic credentials of individuals pursuing higher education through the board’s assessments.

No DE Admission Without Certificate Verification, JAMB Tells Applicants

In a recent development, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has issued a stern warning to candidates seeking Direct Entry (DE) admission for the 2023 academic year. According to the official statement released on Friday via its official platform, JAMB emphasized that it would not process any Direct Entry admissions without the prior verification of certificates.

The Board urged all Advance Level candidates who have applied for 2023 admissions through Direct Entry to promptly contact their former institutions for the verification of their certificates. This crucial step, as outlined by JAMB, is mandatory for the admission process to move forward.

Highlighting the importance of certificate verification, JAMB emphasized that it had already communicated with all tertiary institutions responsible for issuing certificates. While a substantial number of institutions responded promptly and positively, the Board expressed concern about the lack of responsiveness from some educational institutions.

The official statement from JAMB read, “This is to notify all A-Level candidates who applied for 2023 admissions through Direct Entry (DE) to contact their former institutions for prompt verification of their certificates. In order to expedite the verification process, the Board wrote to all tertiary institutions that issued the certificates, and a significant number of them responded positively, while others were lax.”

It further stated, “Please be advised that the Board will not process any DE admission without certificate verification, and the admission process for the academic year will be completed soon. As such, the Board would not consider all affected students of non-responsive institutions for admissions for the academic year.”

In an effort to assist candidates, JAMB provided a link to a list of non-responsive institutions. This move is intended to guide applicants in identifying institutions that have not yet participated in the crucial certificate verification process.

The announcement has left candidates on edge, emphasizing the need for timely action to ensure that their admissions are not jeopardized. As the academic year approaches, the Board’s stance underscores the importance of a streamlined and accountable admission process, highlighting the significance of certificate verification in maintaining the integrity of the education system.

Prospective students are advised to act swiftly, contacting their former institutions for the necessary certificate verification to avoid any delays or complications in their Direct Entry admission process for the upcoming academic year.


The JAMB 2024/2025 examination is an important opportunity for Nigerian students who aspire to further their education in tertiary institutions. Candidates are advised to follow the guidelines and instructions provided by the board and prepare adequately for the examination. For more information and updates, candidates can visit the JAMB website or follow their social media pages. We wish all the candidates success in their examination.
