UTME 2024: JAMB Directs Candidates to NIMC Platform for Name Changes

FCT, Abuja – In a significant development ahead of the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has informed candidates that names are non-changeable on its portal. Candidates have been directed to effect any necessary changes through the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) platform prior to initiating UTME or direct entry (DE) registration.

JAMB’s latest directive came to light in a tweet posted on Monday, January 22, where the examination body emphasized the importance of pre-registration modifications on the NIMC platform. The tweet underscored that any data extracted from the NIMC platform by JAMB “remains untampered.”

The post read: “Please note that names are not changeable on the JAMB portal. Candidates have been advised to effect all necessary changes on the NIMC platform before proceeding for UTME/DE registration as any information pulled from that platform by JAMB remains untampered.”

Prospective candidates have been urged to prioritize this step to ensure accuracy in their registration details. Failure to comply might lead to discrepancies in their JAMB records, potentially affecting the entire examination process.


In a related development, concerns have arisen among applicants one week into the commencement of the 2024 UTME form sales. As reported by Premium Times, prospective candidates have faced challenges in linking their mobile telephone lines with their National Identification Number (NIN) or have encountered inaccuracies in their NIN details.

To curb malpractices, including impersonation, JAMB has mandated the use of NIN for the UTME application process. However, increasing complaints from applicants and their guardians have prompted JAMB to schedule a meeting with the leadership of the NIMC. This collaborative effort aims to address the challenges faced by candidates and streamline the application process.

As the UTME 2024 preparations unfold, candidates are advised to stay informed and adhere to JAMB’s guidelines for a smooth and successful registration process. The upcoming meeting between JAMB and NIMC is anticipated to provide solutions to the issues faced by candidates, ensuring a fair and efficient examination experience.
