Latest: JAMB Registers 1,287,548 Candidates for 2021 UTME/DE Registration
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has revealed that over 1,223,962 candidates have been registered in the ongoing 2021 UTME registration while over 63,586 candidates have been registered for the Direct Entry as of May 23rd, 2021. This was contained in the weekly bulletin publication of the Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) via its official website.
According to JAMB, the registration deadline remains May 29th, 2021. JAMB however did not disclose if the e-PIN vending will end on the same date as the registration.
That notwithstanding, we advise candidates who are still yet to generate their profile codes to still keep trying as from all indications, the e-PIN vending will likely continue and end on the same date as registration unless JAMB officially announces otherwise.
Meanwhile, JAMB has warned parents registering their wards for the 2021 UTME to beware of extortion as it has come to the knowledge of the board that some elite schools are using the name of the Board to extort huge sums of money from parents under the guise of registering for the Board’s processes or that the Board has ordered such payments.
Parents are to note that the cost of the UTME forms (ePINs) remains N3500 and N500 for the reading text and nothing more. Parents are to ensure that their children register for the UTME individually and not as a group. In addition, the CBT centres have been directed not to charge above N700 as their service charge for the registration.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has revealed that about 1,116,662 candidates have been registered in the ongoing 2021 UTME registration while over 55,336 candidates have been registered for the Direct Entry as of May 16th, 2021. This was contained in the weekly bulletin publication of the Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) via its official website.
The board also disclosed measures that have been put in place to ensure that as many candidates as possible are able to register before the new deadline.
In order to resolve the bottlenecks that have been identified in the ongoing registration the following measures have been put in place;
i. The Board is to seek an alternative Value-Added Service (VAS) provider to enhance the smooth dispatch of profile codes.
ii. CBT centres are to, henceforth, stop the sale of pins as flouting this directive would attract appropriate sanctions.
iii. No CBT centre is allowed to collect e PIN and registration fees simultaneously.
iv. No CBT centre is to collect registration fee until completion of registration.
v. The Board reiterated the prohibition of group registration for candidates while CBT centres are forbidden from registering candidates in groups, especially from elite schools.
vi. CBT centres are to ensure optimal utilization of their registration outlets by opening all the twenty (20) allowable registration points to ease congestion.
vii. Candidates for Direct Entry are reminded to specify their category of admission while procuring their pins. As such, if a DE candidate mistakenly purchases an ePIN for UTME, the selling point is to rectify the error by swapping the ePIN to DE at no further cost to the candidate.
viii. JAMB Digital Service Providers were encouraged to expand their facilities, which include the provision of redundancy links for more efficient service delivery.
ix. Extraction of pledge from NIMC to give priority attention to UTME/DE prospective candidates. Consequently, all prospective candidates and other Users who have not received a response from 55019 are advised to send their Tracking ID or NIN to firstname.lastname@example.org However, those who had obtained their NINs through
unauthorised sources and are having challenges would have to visit the NIMC office to resolve them.
x. NIMC to deploy special monitoring teams to monitor its operators to forestall any incidence of extortion and to sanction any NIMC agent found extorting candidates in the cause of enrollment.
xi. Against the background of below-par performance from one of the service providers, a firm commitment to optimise its service during the period of the extension of registration was obtained from the operator.
Similarly, the stakeholders also implored the Federal Ministry of Education to introduce a policy that would discourage parents from seeking to register underage and immature candidates for the UTME to pursue tertiary education ahead of their time.

Earlier: JAMB Registers 1.9 Million Candidates, Highest Recorded in History | 2020
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has registered over 1,900,000 candidates for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculations Examination, as the registration for the examination closes by midnight on Monday (today).
JAMB said on Sunday that the 1.9million was the highest number of registration done in the history of the board and would still increase as more candidates were expected to register on Monday.
The PUNCH reports that the UTME examination has been slated between March 14 and April 4 with an optional mock examination scheduled nationwide for Tuesday, February 18.
The board’s Head of Press and Public Relations, Dr Fabian Benjamin, confirmed the 1.9million registered candidates in an interview, noting that it was the highest registration in the history of the board.
He said, “The registration closes on Monday night. As I speak to you, we have registered over 1.9million. That is the highest we have ever had in the 41-year history of the board. Right now, we have surpassed the last year’s statistics at 1.8million. That is to tell you that nobody has an excuse of why he or she could not register.
“On the February 18 Mock, we have put everything in place. Our workers who are deployed for the exercise are already on the field. And as you are aware, the essence of the mock is to test the readiness of our facilities and also give the candidates the opportunity to have a hands-on experience on the computers.”
Our correspondent, who monitored the UTME registration in three Computer-Based Test Centres in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, reports that there is already a last-minute rush at the centres.
The candidates thronged the centres at Jabi, Central Business District and Kubwa in their hundreds trying to beat the Monday deadline.
At the Global Distance Learning Institute, Central Business District, the centre Manager, Mr Emeka Nwanaka, confirmed the last-minute rush, adding that there were, however, no issues of biometric failure.
