JAMB has explained the reason for the delay in the commencement of the registration for the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination. According to the board, the registration is being delayed due to forces beyond its control which includes some issues connected to the use of NIN. The spokesman for the board, Dr. Fabian Benjamin, made the clarifications in an interview with newsmen in Abuja.

Concerning the compulsory use of NIN for the 2022 UTME/DE registration, Dr fabian defended the decision of JAMB to enforce the National Identity Number requirement in the registration process.

He said, “The introduction of the NIN in UTME registration in 2021 by the board was a game-changer in the fight against impersonation and other examination infractions. It is to be noted that the decision to adopt the NIN was a very difficult one given the various challenges and opposition from many quarters to the policy.

“However, the board, seeing the many benefits associated with the deployment of the NIN, took the unpopular but beneficial decision, knowing that any departure from the norm would, more often than not, be met with initial opposition and rejection, and was, therefore, understandably undeterred in its chosen course of action.”

The JAMB spokesperson added that the board is ready to do all that is necessary not only to meet up with the schedule but also to make the 2022 UTME registration and examination the best so far.

While we are still waiting for the form to come out, those who may want to obtain the 2022 UTME or DE form, are advised to do the following;

1. Obtain their National Identification Number (NIN). This is a major prerequisite for UTME registration. Without getting a NIN number, you will not be allowed to register for UTME/DE. Candidates yet to get their NIN are advised to check the procedure via this link: NIN Registration Guidelines and Requirements

2. Familiarise yourself with the JAMB Brochure and syllabus in order to know the right subject combination for your intended course of study and the schools that offer such courses as well as topics you are expected to cover under the subjects you will be taking for the exam.

3. Create his/her profile by sending the NIN to 55019 to create a profile for registration.

JAMB also said it has put adequate measures in place not only to checkmate those who may want to cheat but also strengthened all administrative procedures for the smooth prosecution of any candidate, centre or even staff of the Board found to have been involved in any infraction starting from the registration exercise.
