8 MUST DO to Ensure your 2020 JAMB UTME Registration Faster And Stress Free

Written by Glory Joseph

The 2020 UTME candidates are eager to register for the forthcoming JAMB UTME examination for the 2020/21 examination. Prior to the registration, JAMB registrar, Professor Ishaq disclosed that all candidates must have their National Identity Number (NIN) for the registration. This made it extremely difficult for candidates without the NIN to register for the examination.

However, after noticing the discomfort and how difficult it is to obtain the NIN in Nigeria, JAMB Suspends National Identification Number (NIN) As Requirement For UTME 2020, and this decision earned the board praises from parents, guardians, candidates, and well-meaning Nigerians.

However, one major reason why candidates are experiencing delay in their registration, is that you don’t know what is expected of you. Once you know what is required of you, and do it before going to the JAMB accredited registration centers, your registration will be smooth and easy.

For instance, there was an issue when a friend disclosed to us that several candidates, on getting to the registration centers, asked the operators to help them choose the course and institution of choice or determine the right UTME/O’level subject requirements. Please note that before going to register for jamb, you MUST have known your subject combination.

To ensure you have an easier, faster and stress-free UTME registration, here are eight (8) free tips from Dailyschoolnews Nigeria.

Tips for Stress-Free 2020 UTME Registration.

Tips for Stress-Free 2020 UTME Registration

1. JAMB Course Eligibility Checker for 2020.

The UTME course and institution eligibility checker provides users the ability to quickly check their qualification and admission chances through their O’level results.

The JAMB Course eligibility checker is built to assists candidates with options of programs (courses) based on their qualifications, and as you can see, this is very important.

UTME and Direct Entry (DE) candidates are advised to check their eligibility for the course (programs) they will be choosing and instructions on http://ibass.jamb.gov.ng. It is important that candidates check the requirements before starting the JAMB registration process.

2. Create JAMB Profile.

This is compulsory for all jambites to register their profile before obtaining Jamb 2020 Registration Form. No candidate will be able to register for this year’s UTME without having a profile.

Before Going for your registration, you should create your jamb profile online, this will enable you to register faster, rather than waiting for the operator to register you, delaying your time and registering other candidates who have done theirs.

Recommended: How to create your jamb profile.

When you create your jamb profile, this will really aid your UTME application process, as the operators will not take extra time in creating your profile.

To create yours, candidates are to send only their Names to 55019 to create their JAMB profile. Your profile will also be used to check your result online, admission status check, admission letter printing, accessing Jamb Caps, change of course/institution, etc.

3. Have a valid email address.

This is very important and all candidates must endeavor to get a working email address. This is important because it is the first and basic step you need to commence your JAMB 2020/2021 registration.

The email address required from you will be used by UTME as a means of registration and communication for the registration process. You can create a free email account with Gmail or Yahoomail.

Buy Jamb 2020 E-Pin Registration.

The next step is to get the JAMB E-Pin which costs N3,500 (see full details on JAMB form price). You can get the pin through any of the methods outlined below.

  • Purchase E-Pin at Jamb Accredited Banks in Nigeria
  • Buying it on Jamb Portal.
  • Through Nigeria Post Office (NIPOST).
  • Via ATM
  • Through your phone.

Visit an Accredited JAMB CBT Center.

Another important information for candidates yet to register for this year’s UTME, is choosing accredited centers. Candidates should be aware that registration for the examination can only be done at accredited and approved CBT centers.

At the Accredited Jamb CBT Centre, after you have successfully registered, you will be given a CD containing the following for free:

  • e-Brochure (This contains guidelines on admission, and a list of accredited tertiary institutions and available programs of study).
  • Syllabus (e-syllabus) for the examination.
  • Step by step guide on completion of the application form.
  • A video message from Professor Ishaq, the Registrar and a demo on using the eight (8) keys for UTME examination without mouse.

10 Fingers Biometric (If Applicable).

It is essential you take note of this. At the registration center, here are the four crucial things expected to be done to ensure your UTME registration was successful.

  • Jamb will take all your fingerprint
  • Your O-level or A-level result will be submitted. (candidates can also use awaiting result).
  • You can use two sittings. I.e, one awaiting and one complete result or two complete results.

Collect Your Jamb E-Slip.

You should ensure you collect your examination slip, as this will be your entry passcode to enter the hall and sit for the examination. The JAMB examination slip contains other important details you will need.

Buying Your e-Pin From Other Outlets.

Are you aware that you can easily get the e-pin from other outlets other than the jamb registration centers? You can actually purchase the Jamb e-pin from outlets like banks and JAMB Offices, and not only accredited registration centers.

Getting the JAMB e-pin from Jamb offices and banks are less stressful compared to getting it at the accredited centers.

If you follow these steps, I promise you, your JAMB registration will be less stressful, as you will immediately proceed with the actual registration once you get to the accredited centers.

Bonus: Download and Complete the JAMB Registration Template.

The 2nd step you should take, to enable you to determine the right choice, of course, institution, UTME/O’level subjects and before visiting Accredited registration center, is to download the JAMB registration Template on your smartphone and see the form you’ll be required to fill in during your registration.

Once you’ve downloaded the JAMB registration Template, you only have to present the template to the operators once you get there. This will help hasten the whole process, both for you and the Operator.
