Candidates express satisfaction as registration begins

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has certified 747 Computer Based Test (CBT) centres for this year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME). The board stated this in its Bulletin issued in Abuja by the board’s Public Communication Advisor (PAC), Dr. Fabian Benjamin.
The board shortlisted 907 CBT centres for accreditation, but at the conclusion of revalidation and integrity tests, it was only able to certify 747 centres for this year’s UTME.
The News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, that monitored registration at some CBT centres in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and its environs, said many candidates besieged the various CBT centres. Some of the candidates, who shared their experiences, said the registration was seamless, while others said otherwise.
At the Future Gate CBT Centre in One-Man village, a candidate, Chinaza Onuegbu, who expressed worry over his inability to register, said he was directed to register in another centre without any reason. Onuegbu said after giving the matter another thought, he went back to request why he would not be allowed to register but was told to return today with his JAMB profile code, which he said he had not obtained.
At the Global Learning Institute, opposite the Federal Ministry of Finance in Abuja, a candidate, Pelumi Rotimi, said the registration was seamless and that she was able to register within few minutes. Rotimi said she hoped to study hard for a good grade that would give her admission into the University of her choice. Candidates are required to possess the following documents for the 2024 UTME registration: the National Identification Number (NIN) and Personal information.
Others are: their Ordinary Level results, choice of institution and course, biometric verification and JAMB registration fee.
Also, some candidates registering for this year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) have expressed satisfaction at the ease of the process. Some of the candidates, who spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, said the registration had been seamless. One of the candidates, Temiloluwa Erogbogbo, said the registration process was not difficult at all. Her sister, Ebunoluwa Erogbogbo, who started the registration on Sunday, said both of them came to one of the JAMB-accredited centres to complete the registration process.
Another candidate, Adebisi Raheem, said the registration process was not hard. Speaking at the JAMB Ibadan Zonal Office, the Zonal Coordinator, Mr. Olugbenga Akintola, said the examination body had made adequate arrangements for a seamless registration process. Akintola said there had been no bombardment of the agency’s system, adding that some of the candidates had already bought their pin some days back.
The zonal coordinator said there had been no complaints from any centres as to any glitch in the registration process. He conducted NAN round the registration points right from where the pin would be purchased to checking of candidates’ information to uploading of their Ordinary Level to payment and registration point manned by JAMB officials.
