2021 UTME: JAMB issues advice to candidates with incomplete registration

2023 UTME: JAMB extends registration by one week

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Wednesday extended the registration of applicants for the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) by one week from February 15.

The Head of Public Affairs and Protocol JAMB Dr Fabian Benjamin made the stated in a statement in Abuja, saying the sale of ePINs would end on Monday February 20, 2023, while the UTME registration ends on February 22, 2023.

The closing date for the sale of the ePINs and the 2023 UTME application documents was slated for Tuesday, 14th February, 2023. This is in line with the Board’s 2023 Schedule of Activities.

The board said at the close of the sale of ePINs on Tuesday, 14th February, 2023, 1,527,068 candidates had successfully registered for the 2023 UTME exercise inclusive of the 168,748, who indicated their interest to take the Mock-UTME

“It should also be noted that the Board, based on its projections, had expanded its capacity to register up to a hundred thousand candidates per day. With this, it was possible to register all desiring candidates within the space of a few days.

“However, less than fifty thousand candidates were turning up for registration which is less than the installed registration capacity. Surprisingly, in the last two days before the closing date, the pace picked up remarkably with over a hundred thousand candidates registering on a daily basis.

“Furthermore, the Board, as a responsive and proactive agency, took cognisance of the reports from across the country indicating some difficulties being faced by many Nigerians in using their electronic channels to purchase the ePINs or obtain cash readily within the stipulated period.

“It has, as a consequence, granted this extension to ensure that all candidates who desire to register for the 2023 UTME are given the opportunity to do so especially when the extant challenges are not of their own making,” the statement added.
