Crack the Code of UTME Registration: Your Step-by-Step Guide for 2024

The registration process for the 2024/2025 Universal Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) has been initiated by the Joint Admission and Matriculations Board (JAMB) for interested candidates nationwide.

JAMB Registrar, Ishaq Oloyede, shared the details during a meeting with media executives in Lagos State on Sunday. Oloyede assured that measures have been implemented to facilitate a seamless registration process for all interested candidates.

The registration sequence will prioritize UTME candidates, followed by Direct Entry (DE) candidates. The sale of DE application documents and E-PIN vending is scheduled to commence on Wednesday, February 28, with the deadline set for Thursday, March 28, 2024. Notably, these transactions can only be conducted at JAMB offices.

Key points to consider before applying:

1. JAMB Direct Entry (DE) form is distinct from the JAMB UTME form, intended for candidates seeking admission into the first year of a university program.
2. Registration is exclusively available at JAMB offices.
3. Applying for both JAMB DE and UTME in the same year is not permissible.
4. JAMB DE form is an online application, requiring submission on the JAMB portal.
5. JAMB recognizes and accepts only twelve qualifications/certificates.
6. Statement of result is acceptable for registration only within three years of the date of award.
7. Candidates can upgrade from UTME to DE if DE results are unreleased during UTME registration, or if candidates indicated they are awaiting A-level results.
8. The DE fee for the 2024/2025 session is set at N3,500, with additional charges for CBT Centre registration service, CBT Centre service for mock/UTME, and bank charges/commission.
– For candidates not sitting for the MOCK examination, the total cost is N6,200.
– For those sitting for the MOCK examination, the total cost is N7,700.
9. National Identification Number (NIN) is mandatory for registration.

Payment methods:

1. Bank payment: Utilize the e-PIN generated on the JAMB portal for payment.
2. Online payment: Use ATM card or USSD code on the JAMB portal for payment.
3. POS payment: Pay with POS at accredited CBT or JAMB office.

To register:

1. Create your JAMB profile.
2. Send your NIN to 55019 or 66019 as a text message. Write ‘NIN,’ space, and add your 11-digit NIN number (e.g., NIN 00123456789).
3. Receive a confirmation code for your JAMB profile.
4. Log into the JAMB portal using the code.
5. Visit an accredited bank, CBT Centre, or embassy (for candidates in foreign countries) to obtain the JAMB e-PIN. Provide the confirmation code and pay the required fee.
6. After sending a message to 55019 or 66019, receive a 10-digit profile code, registered name with NIMC, and total cost for UTME with or without Mock, and DE pin.
7. Present the profile code during form procurement (Banks, MMOs, MFBs, Switches, USSD Partners), and the form ePIN will be sent as a text message.
8. Proceed to any JAMB accredited CBT centre for registration.

To retrieve a lost profile code:

1. Send [RESEND] to 55019 or 66019 from the registered cell phone number.
2. Retrieve the Profile Code delivered to your registered cell phone number.

In case of a lost or unreceived e-PIN:

1. Send [UTMEPIN] or [DEPIN] to 55019 or 66019 for UTME or DE, respectively, from the registered cell phone number.
2. Retrieve the e-PIN delivered to the candidate’s registered cell phone number.
