JAMB Suspends Compulsory Use of NIN For 2020 UTME/DE Registration

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has suspended the compulsory use of the National Identification Number (NIN) for the registration of candidates for the 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry until 2021.

The JAMB Registrar, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, disclosed this during a briefing at the headquaters of the board in Bwari, Abuja. According to him, the move was to provide more time for candidates to get their national identification numbers.

JAMB Suspends Compulsory Use of NIN For 2020 UTME/DE Registration

It was gathered that the decision to suspend the use of NIN for 2020 UTME registration followed criticisms from the public over the poor timing of the policy and the difficulty in obtaining the NIN by prospective candidates.

With this development, candidates can now apply for the 2020 UTME/DE which is set to commence January 13, 2020 without NIN.

The date for the commencement of the JAMB examination remains March 14th, 2020. Candidates are advised to start preparation early with the Myschool JAMB CBT Mobile App for android phones or the Myschool JAMB CBT Software for Computer systems. Both contain over 60,000 JAMB past questions and answers to help you get adequately ready for the exam. You can equally check out the Myschool CBT Classroom

Schools, Institutions, Tutorial Centres, Business Centres & Cafes can start setting up their CBT Centres to become JAMB CBT Agents and Training Centres to help train students for the upcoming exams. For details on how to proceed, please click here.

The compulsory use of NIN will now be considered as from 2021 to enable the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) to have registration centres around computer-based test (CBT) centres across the country for candidates who do not have the NIN to avoid difficulties in registering and writing the examination.

  • Elprince: #Katie_B to get your profile code is now easier, as all you have to do now is to send your FULLNAME eg. "OLUWATOSIN TOLULOPE ADENIYI" to 55019. And then await your profile code.
    The service charge for it is #50, so ensure you have a good network connection and a credit balance of upto #50.
