2024 UTME: JAMB Issues Strong Warning Against Multiple Registration

JAMB has warned the public that they should only register for the 2024 UTME once, adding that they will punish candidates who disobey this order.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has warned the public, especially candidates who will be registering for the 2024 Unified Tertiary and Matriculation Examination (UTME) that multiple registration isn’t allowed. This was disclosed by the board’s Director of Test Administration Department, Mrs Ville Pius, and made available to JAMB’s Bulletin.

According to the Director, any candidate who is found guilty of multiple registrations may be disqualified from writing the 2024 UTME and prosecuted (taken to court). “Multiple registrations are not allowed in the 2024 UTME exercise, candidates, who register more than once would be identified, disqualified, and prosecuted,” she said. Addressing candidates who registered for the examination twice because of errors, Mrs. Ville, the Director, said candidates with registration errors should proceed to JAMB for corrections instead of getting another form. “…in the event of any error during the registration process, candidates are to approach the Board for necessary corrections rather than obtaining fresh application documents as they would be deemed to have engaged in multiple registrations, which could invalidate their applications,” the JAMB bulletin partly reads. To prevent unnecessary registration errors, the Director advised candidates to read and understand the various registration guidelines as well as the set of instructions related on the Board’s advertisement on registration, among others, on how to complete the registration process. Mrs. Ville also reminded candidates that they should NEVER give their personal details to anyone, including JAMB CBT Registration centers. These personal details include registration numbers, passwords, e-mail addresses, and e-PIN. The Director concluded by reminding candidates that upon the completion of registration, they would be required to sign a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on compliance with ethical (good) standards guiding their applications.
