The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB has open registration portal from Wednesday 13th March, 2019 for all candidates with either UTME or DE ePINS to complete their registration formalities.
The portal according to Dr. Fabian Benjamin, Head of Media JAMB in a statement would be closed on Friday, 15th March, 2019 by 12 midnight.
He said the portal opening is an opportunity for candidates who had created profile and procured UTME or DE ePINS before the close of registration portal as the sale of ePINS had since been closed to complete their registration.
It would recall that the Board had closed the sale of its Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and Direct Entry application document on Thursday, 21st February, 2019. At the close of the sale and subsequently close of registration portal, it was discovered that 41,063 candidates created profile and procured either UTME or DE ePINS but were unable to complete their registration formalities after initiating the process.
Benjamin who called on candidates holding any of the ePINS (UTME/DE) to ensure full registration latest by Friday midnight hinted that the Board has also fixed Monday, 1st April, 2019 for its 2019 mock examination earlier scheduled for Saturday, 23rd March,2019.
This change he noted is due to certain circumstances beyond the Board’s control.
According to hum, candidates who had indicated interest in the mock examination at the point of registration and have since printed their mock examination notification slips need not print another one.
He explained that all the details on the slips remain the same except the examination date which is now 1st April, 2019.
Benjamin stated that the Board has also scheduled to conduct the 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation examination (UTME) from Thursday, 11th April, 2019. Candidates are to begin the printing of the 2019 UTME notification slips from Tuesday, 2nd April,2019.
He said, “All candidates who registered for the 2019 UTME are to ensure that they print their examination notification slips before the day of the examination as no excuses would be entertained.
The public should note that the Board would not reschedule examination for any candidate. Candidates can print their slips anywhere.”
