JAMB begins sales of UTME forms Jan 10, bans cybercafés

The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board has said that it will commence sale of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination form to candidates on January 10, 2019.

This was made known during a meeting between JAMB and Computer Based Test centres at the University of Lagos, on Thursday, where the Registrar of JAMB, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, also said the registration for the UTME would no longer be done at cybercafés but at accredited CBT centres.


Oloyede stated that limiting of registration of candidates to only approved CBT centres was to end extortion of candidates, mixing up of pupils’ data, malpractice, as well as for monitoring purposes.

He said, “Cybercafés overcharge pupils and mix up data which makes pupils suffer. They also do services they don’t have the capacity to do. All these, coupled with the fact that there is no way of tracking them because they were not registered, we have limited registration to CBT centres that can be monitored. “From now on, all essential services; creation of candidate profile, uploading WAEC and NECO results, collating biometric details, would be done at CBT centres. To reduce the incidence of data mix up prospective candidates will verify their data by fingerprint before it is submitted and printed out.”

The registrar, however, advised CBT proprietors and managers to maintain the highest standards as he threatened to weed out non performers. “Even as essential services are restricted to you, you have to look beyond the revenue and deliver quality service because you will be constantly monitored. Even as 80 per cent of CBT centres performed well in 2018. We have eliminated those that didn’t do well. Fifty centres were sanctioned for registration infractions and against 2019, we have 718 accredited CBT centres which will help in spreading digital literacy,” he said.

Oloyede added that the sale of registration forms would span six weeks, as he gave the assurance that the general elections would not affect UTME because the board had adjusted its examination schedule ahead of the election. He also said the registration portal would make provision for deaf candidates so they can be well attended to in their respective centres.

breaking: federal government slashes jamb and neco fees

The Federal Government on Wednesday announced drastic reduction in the cost of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB and National Examination Council, NECO, registration and examination fees.
Applicants under the new arrangement will pay N3,500 as JAMB examination fees against the previous fees N5,000, N9,850 for Senior Secondary Certificate examination SSCE, which is handled by NECO from the current N11,350 being paid and N4,000 instead of N5,500 for Basic Education Certificate which is also handled by NECO.
The new reductions were announced by the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu while briefing State House correspondents after the Federal Executive Council, FEC, meeting presided over by the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
FEC also approved N14.7 billion, to be funded by the contractor, for new Economic Community of West African States, ECOWAS, travel certificates.
The new certificate will now carry security features like the picture and fingerprints of the holder. The Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Danbazzau said the current certificate has no security features and could be easily forged by anybody. Noting that the new project is for the security of the Nigerian borders, he said that the agreement for the contract would be signed at a later date. He said that the contract is for ten years and that 13 million cards will be produced within the period.
The Minister of State for Power, Works and Housing, Suleiman Hassan said that N3.4 billion was approved for furnishing of three Federal Secretariat complex in Anambra, Zamfara and Bayelsa states and N331. 2 billion for rehabilitation of some bridges in the north east.
