2018 JAMB's UTME: Registration, pin procurement and all that you need to know

There seems to be slight difference(s) in the registration process of the 2017 JAMB examination and that of 2018. From personal observation, these differences will tackle the stress issue experienced by candidates who sat for the 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME). Kudos to JAMB's Registrar, Prof Is-haq O. Oloyede, for these innovative ideas.

1. SALE/REGISTRATION PERIOD
The period of sale/registration for all candidates (UTME / DE) including those from Foreign Countries is from 6th December, 2017 to 6th February, 2018.

2. REGISTRATION FEE
Registration fee is five thousand naira(N5,000) only. Additional five hundred naira (N500) only is paid to obtain the reading text, IN DEPENDENCE for UTME Candidates and The Last Days at Forcados High School for DE Candidates and $20 for Candidates from the eight foreign centres.

The 2018 CBT examination will commence on Friday 9th March and end on 17th March, 2018. The venue of the examination will be at any centre in the candidate's chosen examination town(s).

Note: JAMB does not post any candidate to any examination town (or group of towns) other than the one chosen by the candidate at the point of registration. Candidates are, however, advised to register on time before the available spaces in their town of choice or group of towns are exhausted and therefore no longer available.

4. OPTIONAL MOCK-EXAMINATION
As was done last year, the Board will also conduct a mock examination in all the accredited CBT centres to prepare and familiarise INTERESTED Candidates with the CBT environment. Interested candidates are advised to indicate their interest in the mock examination during registration provided it is on or before 31st December, 2017.

The MOCK examination shall commence from Monday 22nd to Wednesday 24th January, 2018.

The payment for mock examination by the candidate shall be made to the centre to which the candidate is assigned after the notification of assigned centres for the mock examination. No Association or body is permitted to run any mock examination on behalf of JAMB.

Note: Do not pay for mock until jamb assigns you to a cbt centre. no one should patronise fraudsters, many of whom are now in custody for defrauding prospective candidates. only jamb accredited cbt centres can do valid registration and serve as examination centres.
