2022 UTME: JAMB introduces new Self-Registration

JAMB says the Self Registration centres will minimize overcrowding and upskill students in IT


IT News Nigeria:

Nigeria apex nationwide exam body, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Friday announced the introduction of self-registration centers for the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE) examinations, according it weekly bulletin.

Jamb also said the service provider, Bankfort is upbeat and optimistic  about the immense potential of the seamless registration mode, stating that it is the norm rather than the exception in more developed climes

The Board said the centres are in Abuja and Lagos, adding that, the aim is to minimize overcrowding at computer-based test centers (CBTs).

“This system would, in the long run, reduce the crowds at CBT centres in these cities,”

“The conception of this noble idea is to, besides advancing the digital competence of candidates who feel they can do the registration on their own, expand the registration access points in line with COVID-19 protocols.”

Furthermore, JAMB also revealed that it has adopted the numbers 66019 code apart from the 55019 they had used since 2018 for the UTME and DE registrations and other essential services.

According to the statement, JAMB noted that the idea is to facilitate the 2022 UTME and DE registrations so that there won’t be many complaints.

Our aim, the Body said is to entrench ease of access and ensure that students do not find it difficult to create profiles.

Further, JAMB also revealed that it is set to incur not less than N50 million as added commission to its financial vendors following the introduction of the cashless regime introduced in the 2022/23 UTME/DE Registration exercise. According to the Registrar, the additional financial burden is the price the Board is prepared to pay owing to its passionate concern for the plight of hapless UTME/DE candidates by shylock centre owners. He added that the measure would also put a stop to other sharp practices that usually trailed the payments of direct service charges for registration at these centres.
