The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has announced that the technical problem resulting from NIN integration which caused the suspension of the JAMB 2021 UTME/DE registration has been resolved and registration is commencing immediately.
This was contained in a statement issued by the spokesperson for JAMB, Dr Fabian Benjamin. According to him, registration for the examination had now commenced in full swing as all the issues had been resolved.

He stated that the registration was only put on hold to resolve the technical hitches; adding that some candidates had successfully registered for the examination.
Although it was stated that some candidates have already registered, JAMB is yet to publish the official advertisement that contains all the necessary information for 2021 UTME/DE registration like the JAMB Novel for 2021 UTME candidates
We, therefore, advise candidates to wait until the official registration advertisement and documents are released by JAMB. We expect the official publication to be made on Monday, 12th April 2021. We will inform you once JAMB releases the information.
2021 JAMB Registration Process Flow:
- VALID, FUNCTIONAL E-MAIL AND PHONE NUMBER
It is important to get a valid and functional e-mail account. You also need an active phone number. This is because you will need this for registration and to send and receive information from JAMB. Your e-mail is also a form of identity for you.
- NATIONAL IDENTIFICATION NUMBER (NIN)
JAMB will be making use of the National Identification Number for registration this year. Being a compulsory requirement, you will need it for your enrollment.
- VISIT JAMB WEBSITE
After having your email address and NIN ready, you can proceed to the JAMB website. When you get there, create a JAMB profile, preferably before purchasing the form.
- CHECK JAMB iBass
After creating a profile, it is recommended that you check JAMB iBass to be sure of your eligibility to take this year’s examination. The information is provided on the official website of the exam body.
After your eligibility has been confirmed, then you can proceed to purchase your 2021 JAMB e-pin registration from banks and other accredited outlets.
Then, proceed to any accredited computer-based test centre with your personal details and your profile code.
The detailed procedure will be made available soon.
