Jamb Registration Procedure at CBT Centers

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has given the green light to all its accredited Computer-Based Testing (CBT) centres to conduct registration for the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), Part-time, Sandwich and Distance Learning (DL) candidates in addition to that of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry(DE).

This added responsibility, which was suspended following reported cases of abuses by the centres, is not only to empower the centres but also to bring these services closer to candidates.

However, to ensure that jamb candidates and the public gets quality services and are not extorted, the Board would be monitoring the UTME/DE registration exercise, as well as assess how the centres are shouldering the added responsibility.

The exercise is part of the Board’s resolve to ensure that its agents play according to the rules as anyone found wanting would be delisted.

Furthermore, the jamb CBT centres were also charged to refrain from charging above the regulated jamb registration fees.

The jamb registration procedure at cbt centers are clearly stated in the weekly jamb bulletin and I’ve decided to share with you, in this post.

JAMB Registration Process at CBT Centers

Candidate must PERSONALLY present his/her jamb profile code and jamb e-PIN at any JAMB accredited CBT Centre for registration.

Candidate’s photograph and biometrics (all the ten fingerprint) would be captured at the CBT centre.

Candidates are to :

I. Note that service charge of N700 hitherto payable at the CBT centre for registration (NOT MOCK) is now part of the registration fee as such candidates are not to pay for
registration. During registration, no other payment is required.

ii. Provide choice of institutions and programmes (course of study).

iii. Provide qualification with grades and dates, if not awaiting result.

iv. Upload relevant certificates, if not awaiting result (this is applicable for both UTME and Direct Entry (DE) candidates) .

v. Provide 0/L and /or A/L grades. Candidates who are awaiting results should supply (upload) the results online on CAPS (JAMB) as soon as they are available. No recommendations from any Institution will be considered by JAMB if the candidate does not upload his/her result on the portal of JAMB.

vi. Supply JAMB registration number for previous institutional certificates for DE only

vii. Provide UTME subjects and choice of examination town(s) for :

  • Mock examination(optional). For mock, candidates pay the centre on the day of the mock examination
  • Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) (actual examination)

viii. Review entries and confirm correctness

ix. Print Registration Slip USING BIOMETRIC AUTHENTICATION to confirm valid finger-print (UTME/DE). Note that authentication with your fingerprint removes blames of error from CBT centres. Candidates are to check before confirming with their fingerprint.

x. Collect ,at no other cost, the JAMB reading text and JAMB CD.

xi. Collect the e-slip at the end of registration as evidence of jamb registration.


There will be no offline registration, as all the accredited CBI centres have been empowered for real-time online registration. No candidate should register at any centre other than the accredited CBT centre and JAMB State-Offices. Any candidate who is registered outside approved centres will be identified and disqualified.

Candidates who are blind are to indicate by typing BLIND and also pick the option of sitting for the examination through CBT mode or Read Aloud. A candidate is either blind or sighted. It is important to be factual.

During jamb registration, once a candidate indicates that he or she is blind, there would be dropdown box for the candidate to select the town closest to his/her residence to write the
exam. The towns available for the blind candidates are as follows: Abuja, FCT, Bauchi, Bauchi State, Beni, Edo State, Ekiti, Safi State, Enugu, Enugu State, Kano, Kano State, Kebbi, Kebbi State, Lagos, Lagos State, Oyo, Oyo State, Plateau, Plateau State, Yola, Adamawa State.

JAMB Registration Procedures for DEAF/MUTE CANDIDATES

A special indicator for the deaf/mute has been created to differentiate them for special attention at the examination hall. Deaf candidates are therefore required to confirm this
appropriately during jamb registration.

Biometric Challenges During Jamb Registration

Candidates with Biometric abnormality can only register and take examinabon at the JAMB headquarters in Abuja. The Board will facilitate the travels.

No candidate will be allowed to sit for the jamb examination if his/her biometrics is not verified.
