JAMB Registration Form 2023/2024: At the conclusion of the  management meeting held on Tuesday, 20th December 2022, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) released key dates for its activities in 2023.

Therefore, the Board has approved the registration period for the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) to be held from Saturday, January 14, to Tuesday, February 14, 2023. This does not, however, include registration for Direct Entry (DE) application documents, as DE registration would begin on Monday, February 20 and end on Thursday, April 20, 2023.

The Board also set Thursday, March 16, 2023, as the date for its optional mock UTME.

Candidates are advised that they will be required to pay a service fee of N1,000 to CBT centres for the conduct of mock examinations at the time of registration. This is to prevent a situation in which candidates indicate an interest in sitting the mock UTME, causing the various centres to commit human and material resources, only to have the candidates fail to appear on the day of the examination. With the new structure, candidates signal their interest by paying for the mock exam at the time of UTME registration, preventing centres from suffering losses regardless of whether candidates attend.

The Board advises all candidates interested in registering for the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) to immediately begin creating their respective profiles (creation of profile code) prior to the formal commencement of the registration exercise. This is to ensure that they do not become caught up in any subsequent bottlenecks.

The 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) Form is now available for purchase. Please be aware that only JAMB State-Offices and JAMB Accredited Centers are permitted to perform registration. Avoid using any Cybercafés or computer centers besides those listed by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board for your safety (JAMB).
