Now to the question of duration, it takes a minimum of two months and sometimes more depending on the situation.

How To Register For JAMB 2023 Online

When one sees this question he/she might feel like of course, I can get it done at any cyber cafe close to my area. If that’s your intention, you are wrong.

JAMB forms can’t be obtained in cyber cafes. Instead, JAMB forms can only be gotten at accredited CBT centers.

Now you need to note, we have more than a hundred CBT centers across Nigeria that are not accredited, and if you, unfortunately, fall into their hands. I’m sorry to say, your money is gone.

How do I know accredited CBT centers? At present, there are six hundred and eighty-nine (689) accredited CBT centers across Nigeria.

So the best thing for you as an aspirant is to look through the list of accredited centers and check the ones that are closer to your residential areas.

To get the full list of centers visit https://www.jamb.gov.ng/Accreditted_Centres.

During registration, you will be asked sensitive questions like where you stay and where you would love to sit for your exam.

Please don’t confuse that for the state of origin, because any area chosen is where you will be posted for the exam.

Requirements For JAMB Registration 2023

First and foremost, every aspirant should note that National Identification Number (NIN) has been made compulsory as a requirement for 2023 registration.

No NIN, no registration. So I would advise all aspirants reading this to get their National Identification Number (NIN) gotten before the commencement of registration and exams.

Aside from having NIN, there are a lot of things students need to know before going to examination centers.

As some would say or you might have heard some said that for one to register for JAMB, he or she must have written the West African Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

I want to use this medium to tell and assure you that this is untrue.

So if you haven’t written WASSCE before JAMB registration commences you are on the good side, however, you must be willing to write it (SSCE) the same year.

All you have to do is to indicate during registration that you will be using awaiting result, that is, you don’t have a result yet.

At the same time, you might be wondering what the minimum age for UTME is, well as for that you must be 16 and above to register for JAMB.

Now to 2023 JAMB registration proper, the following must be beforehand for a successful registration.

First, a functional email, make sure this mail can be easily accessed by you anytime, anywhere. As necessary information will be passed to students through this mail.

So I will reiterate, please make sure the mail is personal.

Another thing needed is a functional phone number. This is also important as vital information about exams will be communicated through these numbers.

Also included in the purchase of e-pins and generation of profile code, can be done at accredited computer-based test (CBT) centers.

You don’t need to fuss about this because it can be gotten without stress.

Lastly, make sure all information supplied to your registrar is correct, and make sure you print out your registration slip.

Has JAMB 2023 Registration Been Cancelled or Postponed?

I don’t know when people will stop sharing fake news and rumors about this JAMB.

The board has not canceled or postponed anything, stop reading unverified news and stop sharing them.

Choosing institutions and courses in JAMB 2023

It should be noted that during JAMB registration, applicants will be asked to fill in four different higher institutions of learning.

First is a federal University, second must be a state university and third choice should be a college of education and last choice must be a polytechnic or educational institute.

You should never pick a single school all through the four spaces. Therefore every aspirant must make research well before picking any tertiary institution.

READ→  JAMB Matriculation List For NYSC Mobilization 2022/2023

For the first choice, aspirants are to pick any federal University of their choice.

Examples of federal universities are; University of Ibadan (UI), University of Ilorin (Unilorin), University of Lagos (Unilag), Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), University of Benin (Uniben), Federal University of Technology Akure (Futa), just to mention a few.

There are many more federal universities than the ones listed above, so you can kindly search for your preferred university on the internet.

Also, it’s always advisable to pick universities located in one’s state of origin to increase the chances of gaining admission.

However, not all universities use this system unless your state falls under ELds (education less privileged), because Students who come from education less privileged states are always given special consideration during admission.

States that fall under ELds include; Zamfara, Sokoto, Gombe, Yobe, and many more.

As for state universities, the same modalities should be observed as written for the first above.

Some of the popular state universities in Nigeria are; Lagos State University (Lasu), Kwara State University (Kwasu), Olabisi Onabanjo State University (OOU), etc.

The third choices are for polytechnic while the last is for college of educations.

A good number of students (aspirants) often get confused when it comes to picking the right courses.

It’s a culture that everyone has one or two courses he/she wants to study. But to what extent do you know about your course of study.? Does the university you picked even offers the course. All these are what aspirants are to consider before picking any university or course?.

Check your preferred university’s portal to confirm. If the course is present there continue with your registration but if otherwise pick another university that offers that course or change to a different course

Also, it’s pertinent that you as an aspirant must know that admission is given mostly based on merit. So the higher your jamb score and WASSCE grades, the better your chances of gaining admission.

How JAMB questions are set, marked, and calculated

I was at a CBT center sometime last year for registration, and I heard some students arguing about the nature of the UTME exam.

Some affirmed that its theory is while some said it’s objective. Well, as to what to expect in your forthcoming JAMB examination, it’s OBJECTIVE no theory questions.

The exam (JAMB) will consist of 180 questions and a total of 2 hours will be given to complete the questions and submit them.

So if Jinadu Bolanle has picked English, Government, Economics, and Literature. She is going to answer sixty questions in English and forty for each of the remaining three subjects.

With the questions being objectives is of great help to the students because you have multiple options to choose from.

For the English Language, you will come across questions on antonyms, synonyms, concord, oral, and extracted questions from given literature text.

While for your other three subjects combined, I’ll implore you to read the nitty-gritty to pass with amazing grades.

How to score high in the JAMB 2023 Exam

If you can follow the steps below, I can assure you that you will score nothing less than 280 in this forthcoming coming examination.

Get the JAMB syllabus

Every subject has its syllabus. To know where to read and cover you need a syllabus. This will guide you during your course of reading and will have a way for an amazing result.

The syllabus is like a scheme of works and for every subject, you will be sitting for in the forthcoming examination there is the syllabus for it on Jamb official [email protected] www.Jamb.gov.ng.

Get Textbooks

One of the reasons I wrote up there that JAMB is simple is because aside from you getting a syllabus to guide you, the body conducting the exam so provides names of textbooks to read for each subject.

Get these textbooks, not one or more as many as you can read them, and make sure every single detail is well understood.

Read aggressively

As simple as jamb is some applicants still score below 200. This is so unfortunate because a lot of them don’t know much about the exam modus operandi.

Without a comprehensive and extensive reading, it’s uncertain if one can score up to 200. So, therefore, you need to read tirelessly to answer JAMB questions correctly.

For sure you will come across tough and tricky questions, but if you have equipped yourself with adequate knowledge, those questions won’t be hard for you at all.

Attend a tutorial/ find a brainstorming group

Although some would say they don’t like going to tutorials, fine. It’s okay if you don’t want to attend tutorials make sure you don’t miss brainstorming with like minds who are as intelligent as you are and sometimes even know more than you.

This is a very helpful study tip if you can adopt it. It doesn’t only give room for chances of scoring high marks it also boosts participants’ bank of knowledge.

And if your option is to attend the tutorial, I would congratulate you in advance, because in tutorials you will meet with tutors who are experts at different disciplines.

Pray and Review what you read

There is a popular quote that says “read as if you don’t have God, and pray as if you haven’t read. This means you have to do the two things simultaneously.

You read then you pray. Always humble yourself even after reading all your materials. Pray for smooth operation during your registration and examination.

Other important things to know about UTME 2023

– Electric devices aren’t allowed during examinations

– Wristwatches, bangles, and other beautification accessories are not allowed as well.

– Dress reasonably while going for registration and exam.

– Examination malpractice is highly discouraged and punishable if caught.
