We hope JAMB have taken care of the high level of load expected during this period of time, since last year, there was a really shut down of their system, which prevented students from checking their jamb results. Some cyber cafes may block access to JAMB UTME e-registration portal from their cafe so that you pay them for your UTME registration. In such a situation, you are advised to look for a cyber cafe that does not offer JAMB UTME services themselves.

However, if it is impossible to register for Jamb UTME yourself, then you can give it out to a consultant or to the cyber cafe assistant to do it for you. If you outsource your JAMB UTME registration to a consultant or cyber cafe, make sure you monitor him/ her to ensure that your data is properly entered, since they’re in a hurry and a mistake could see you been sent to another school or given a different course.

Most people with registration problems in JAMB UTME are usually those who give it out to consultants without proper monitoring of how the procedures was done.

But to minimize the traffic issue, you find the JAMB UTME portal too slow mostly on workdays, try on Sundays or at Night when traffic is minimal and people aren’t browsing at that time. If you have your own internet connection, you can always access the JAMB UTME portal at anytime.

The Fingerprint derived from the registration process, which may be used for gaining access to examination hall on examination date.
