It is no longer news that the process for 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) has commenced accordingly under the auspices of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB). This is for qualified candidates seeking admission to tertiary institutions in Nigeria.

The period for sale/registration according to JAMB is from 6th December, 2017 to 6th February, 2018. It’s also worthy of note that the period concerns all candidates, (UTME/DE) and those from foreign countries.

Prospective candidates are enjoined to visit the official website of JAMB, to access every necessary information and guidelines. Here is the step-by-step comprehensive procedure in pdf format

These guidelinenes are simple as ABC. In fact, if you’re mature enough to write UTME, you’re good enough to understand and follow them. You should not seek to do your registration at just any cybercafé. Registration is to be done only at accredited CBT centers. Your facial and fingerprint data are to be captured, live. It would not even do any good to seek the service of those registration agents you used to know.

Step 1 to 2018 JAMB UTME: Profile Registration from Your Unique Phone Number

The most important thing to note is to use your own mobile phone number. It’s your unique primary contact through which JAMB will communicate and send pertinent information to you till you’re matriculated. Ensure your full name is typed correctly at this initial stage!

Step 2 to 2018 JAMB UTME: Procurement of ePIN?

Registration fee is five thousand Naira (₦5,000.00) only. Additional five hundred Naira (₦500.00) only is paid to obtain the reading text "In Dependence" for UTME and "The Last Days at Forcadoes High School" for Direct Entry (DE) candidates.

There are different approved channels for payment and obtaining ePIN. See the document for guidelines.

Step 3 to 2018 JAMB UTME: Completion of Registration at CBT Center

As mentioned earlier, registration takes place only at the accredited CBT centers and JAMB offices. Visit the official website of JAMB, for updated list of the approved CBT centers nationwide and oversees. Basically, your physical presence, ePIN, credentials and other relevant data are required to complete the registration. Note also that you would be required to pay but NOT more than ₦700.00 as service charge at the CBT center.

What more can I say? Go and get detail information at JAMB’s official website. Ok, wait a minute! If you’re interested in participating in the mock-examination, ensure you register not later than 31st December, 2017. This is to familiarize interested candidates with CBT environment, but it’s not compulsory. Mock examinations towards 2018 JAMB UTME come up in January 2018, from 22nd to 24th.

Wish you all the best in 2018 JAMB UTME!
