JAMB Re-Designs Website As 2017 Registration To Begin Soon

Its a clear indication that the 2017 UTME Registration will kick start soon as the Official JAMB Portal is under construction, and will be re-redesigned to aid faster and efficient registration of students.

Students should note that its no longer news that the management has scrapped the use of scratch cardas students now will now have to register by theirselves online by creating an account on the portal andmaking payment using their respective ATM Debit or credit cards online.

This process will stop extortion from students from Cyber-Cafes agent who usually hike the price of scratch cards while selling to students.

With the new system in place, candidates will now be required to have internet enabled ATM cards to be able to print their JAMB result slips, Admission letter or use any e-facility. Parents can also help their children make payments, but if you have more than one child, you will need to choose which of them you would like to purchase a service for, as 1 account can only process services for 1 JAMB registration number.

This simply means if you purchase JAMB result slip for JAMB registration number 12345678AB, you can purchase JAMB admission letter and other services for only 12345678AB. It is therefore advisable for candidates themselves to create a JAMB account using their emails and phone numbers, right from Registration (From 2017 UTME).

As for scratch card vendors, cafe operators, business centres, the new JAMB system has been designed to limit or totally prevent multiple requests from different JAMB registration numbers.

You will therefore have to find alternatives or maybe register as an accredited JAMB centre. Whether or not this restriction will be lifted to allow candidates, who don't have bank account an option, only time will tell.

We will keep you informed once the portal is enabled for registration and also guidelines on how to register will be published here soon.
