JAMB extends 2023 UTME registration by a week


The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has extended its 2023 UTME registration exercise by one week starting from Wednesday, 15th February, 2023.

By this extension, the sale of ePINs would end on Monday, 20th February, 2023, while the UTME registration ends on Wednesday, 22nd February, 2023.

This development was made known by JAMB spokesperson, Fabian Benjamin in a statement on Wednesday.

EduCeleb.com recall that in line with the examination body had earlier slated the closing date for the sale of both the ePINs and the 2023 UTME application documents for Tuesday, 14th February, 2023.

Benjamin said that at the close of the sale of ePINs on Tuesday, 14th February, 2023, 1,527,068 candidates had succesfully registered for the 2023 UTME exercise inclusive of the 168,748, who indicated their interest to take the Mock-UTME.

There were indications that the extension was to cater to those who faced some challenges registering earlier.

In his words, “Furthermore, the Board, as a responsive and proactive agency, took cognisance of the reports from across the country indicating some difficulties being faced by many Nigerians in using their electronic channels to purchase the ePINs or obtain cash readily within the stipulated period. It has, as a consequence, granted this extension to ensure that all candidates who desire to register for the 2023 UTME are given the opportunity to do so expecially when the extant challenges are not of their own making.”

He expressed the readiness of JAMB to complete the registration process within the given time.

“It should also be noted that the Board, based on its projections, had expanded its capacity to register up to a hundred thousand candidates per day. With this, it was possible to register all desiring candidates within the space of a few days. However, less than fifty thousand candidates were turning up for registration which is less than the installed registration capacity. Surprisingly, in the last two days before the closing date, the pace picked up remarkably with over a hundred thousand candidates registering on a daily basis.”
