Never choose a course that you don’t have any idea about.
Select the right subject combination for your favorite course.
Make sure you do not lost any documents that you may need at the CBTcenter.
Not JAMB profile code, not your JAMB e-pin not your O level either. If you have two of out this, it wont fly. You must have all the three documents intact.
You don’t need any passport or photo at the JAMB CBT center to register.
Biodata is one of the most important personal information needed for JAMB registration.
But some aspirant make the mistake of not being available while the registration is going on.
They give their details to people to register for them and even go as far as scanning passport.
Now some of you might be asking, what should I do while am being registered?
Yes, some aspirants are actually confused on what they should do, while the registration is going on.
You are expected to be present physically, mentally and psychologically.
While your data (your surname, name and other name, date of birth, email address, SSCE and type, subject combination, course and institution) are being inputted.
You are expected to open your eyes and pay attention to what the CBT registrar is inputting.
Your date of birth is very important.
You have to make sure it tallies with the one on your o level.
Don’t be changing your date of birth to appear younger or older. It will have severe consequences.
Make sure your provide your correct name in the right other. Know which one is your First Name, Middle Name or Surname.
Ensure the registrar enters your name correctly. Insist to check your details before he submits it to the database.
Your email address is a very sensitive detail of yours. Ensure the right spelling.
firstname.lastname@example.org is not the same email@example.com.
A mistake of omission of a letter can do much harm.
Can I Use Awaiting Result To Register For JAMB 2021
Yes, you can use an awaiting GCE, neco or WAEC Awaiting Result to register for JAMB exam.
Know that the Awaiting Result required for your JAMB is O level and not A level.
Also make sure that the Awaiting result to be used will come out in the same year you registered for JAMB.
In case the email address you used for the registration is not correct, you are left with two options.
1. Create the incorrect email address: Try to create an email address with the same spelling as the one you used.
If the email address is not available or has been created.
You are left with option two.
2. Pay money at the JAMB cbt center to change the email address.
You will be asked to pay between three and five thousand naira to change it.
After payment, it will be changed. But make sure that it is also correct.
Is JAMB Mock Exam Compulsory
No, the JAMB mock examination is actually not compulsory.
But I think it is necessary for JAMB candidates.
Jamb mock exam 2021/2022
Most candidates don’t know how the JAMB cbt is done.
The JAMB mock exam is just to test your knowledge and expose you to a demo of the real exam.
For example, if you have never sat for JAMB cbt before, you won’t know how it is done.
As I said before, it is not compulsory but necessary for candidates to register for JAMB mock.
It is very good for candidates that are sitting for JAMB for their very first time.
You Forgot Your Email Password
If you lost the password of the email address that you used to register for JAMB, then you need to care about it.
The email that you used for your JAMB registration is very important.
If you can not login to the email, it may affect you.
That is why it is good to use gmail when creating an email address for JAMB registration.
You can easily reset or change your email password.
Open the gmail application or go to their official website.
Click on “forgot password”. It will bring a box for you to put your phone number.
After putting the phone number, a message will be sent to that number.
This message is from Google and will contain the code that you will use to change your email password.
When Will You Get My JAMB Examination Center
Getting your examination centre is also the same thing as reprinting your JAMB exam slip.
The slip will contain vital details like; exam time, JAMB exam centre, exam date, etcetera…
You are going to get your examination center some few weeks to the JAMB 2021/22 exam date.
When the reprinting date becomes officially by the board you will get alerted.
Put that code, change your email address password and you are good to go.
Can I Change My Institution & Course After Registration
Yes, you can change your choice of institution after registration.
You can only change your choice of institution and course after the examination have finished.
You cannot alter it once it is few days or some weeks after registration.
Just make sure you put the correct choice of institution and course.
Don’t choose a school that doesn’t offer your course or is not accredited. For example choosing to study aeronautical engineering in OAU.
Check the brochure to be sure of which school offers which course of study.
All these things are very important if you want to gain admission in 2021.
Don’t choose unaccredited universities, college of education or polytechnics in Nigeria. And I tell you, there are more institutions of learning in Nigeria of today than we have students!
Can I Use The JAMB Profile Code Of Last Year
No, don’t use it to register in 2021.
You need to create a new JAMB profile code. Check the step to create it above.
I will also advise you to use a new phone number to create the UTME profile code for the registration.
But just make sure that the phone number is a personal one that you will always have access to.
This is only for candidates that registered for JAMB in 2020 and want to use the same profile code to register for the JAMB 2021/22.
It is very cheap and would only cost you fifty naira only (j₦50), don’t ignore this please.
How Can I You Correct My Name In JAMB
Sometimes people make the mistake of using misspelt or wrong names to register.
Avoid making this mistake, because it will cost you some money.
You can also correct your name on JAMB portal, but that will be only after exam.
Go to the CBT center that you registered for JAMB, and take at least ₦4,000 along.
How Do I Correct Errors in My O’Level Details
You can correct your o level details after the examination.
It is possible for you to change your o level details.
In case you made a mistake with your o level during the registration, then you need to change it.
Changing it to the correct one on JAMB portal will cost you some money (About ₦2,500 – ₦5,000). Well it will also cost you time, so don’t make costly mistakes.
If there is an error and you ignored it, it will negatively affect your admission into your desired school.
I will say it again. Be careful with the details your supply. Pay attention to it and don’t be in a hurry.
How Will I Correct My Gender In JAMB
Correction of gender will also be done after the exam.
You will need to go back to the cbt center where you registered to correct it.
Note that you will need to take money along, it is not free.
This type of mistake is rare, but sometimes people use the wrong gender while registering.
I don’t know why a girl will use male as gender while registering for JAMB.
