The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is the official board saddled with the responsibility of conducting entrance examination into Nigerian tertiary Institutions. This body was constituted for the assessment of students who wish to acquire tertiary education in Nigeria.
The Board orchestrated and maintains the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) to offer admission to students in the Institutions of higher learning such as monotechnic, polytechnic, university, college of education etc. Only students who pass the UTME and meet up the requirements for their intended courses will be offered admission into their chosen higher institution of learning.
Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) Registration
Before any student can be allowed to write UTME, s/he must register for the examination first. It is only after a successful registration that s/he will then be allowed to write the examination.
Things Required For Registration
- A functional email address
- A functional mobile number
- A UTME registration card
- An internet enabled device such as a computer
- Biometrics Finger print Scanner
- Passport photograph
JAMB registration is usually done via business centers after purchasing the registration scratch card. This is because of the finger print scan. This can only be found at accredited business centers. Therefore, candidates normally pay a fee to the business centers to get the registration done on their behalf.
