Jamb Registration

Almost every secondary school graduate student wishes to study in a higher education facility. But doing so requires passing the compulsory every year Joint Admission and Matriculation Board Examination.

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board(JAMB), a national educational organization, is charged with the sole duty of putting suitably qualified candidates in tertiary institutions.

Following this, the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board organizes the annual Jamb examination. Successful candidates are then given admission. However, this solely depends on your institution of choice and basically if you meet their specified cut-off mark.

Has the 2024 JAMB Registration Started?

At the conclusion of the organization’s management meeting held on Tuesday, 20th December 2023, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) released key dates for its activities in 2024.

Therefore, JAMB has stated the registration period for the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME). Subsequently, the registration is to be held from Saturday, January 14, to Tuesday, February 14, 2024.

Consequently, this does not include registration for Direct Entry (DE). However, application documents for DE registration would begin on Monday, February 20, and end on Thursday, April 20, 2024.

When is JAMB 2024 Examination Date

As prospective students who want to gain admission this year, you should know exactly your  UTME date. With this, you will plan and prepare accordingly.

Jamb examination will be held from Saturday 29th April 2023 to Monday 12th May 2024. Hence you are to start your Registration for the Next UTME as the date for registration is stated above.


How Much is Jamb 2024 UTME Form

The cost of the JAMB registration form for 2024 is simply 4,000 naira (N4,000). However, this is not the only amount you will pay. However, you will need to pay additional fees in order to get the registration form and complete other procedures.

The other fee is the seven hundred naira (or less) JAMB registration fee (N700). Therefore, the entire cost of the JAMB UTME registration form is just 4,700 naira (N4,700). However, this is not static if we include other charges like the mock fee, and CBT accredited center fees.

Following this, we have put up a table below that includes all the necessary charges you may encounter during registration.

Items Amount (naira)
Jamb PIN3,500
Jamb Selected Novel fee500
Registration Charges700
CBT examination charges1000

Total: 5,700

Meanwhile, candidates  who have an interest in writing the Mock examination that will be set by Jamb will pay a service fee of one thousand naira (1000)

Therefore, if you have an interest in writing the mock examination you will pay the amount mentioned above at the time of registration.

Thus, this is done to prevent a situation in which candidates indicate an interest in sitting for the mock UTME. Thereby, causing the various accredited centers to delegate human and material resources towards this course. Afterward, only to have the candidates fail to appear on the day of the examination.

With the new condition, candidates show their desire by paying for the mock exam at the point of UTME registration.

In this situation, it prevents centers from suffering losses regardless of whether candidates attend the mock examination or not.
