The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has introduced self-registration centres in Abuja and Lagos for the 2022 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) and Direct Entry (DE) examinations.

The board said the system would ultimately reduce the crowds at computer-based test centres (CBTs) in the cities.

“This system would, in the long run, reduce the crowds at CBT centres in these cities,” JAMB said in a bulletin. “The conception of this noble idea is to, besides advancing the digital competence of candidates who feel they can do the registration on their own, expand the registration access points in line with COVID-19 protocols.”

JAMB said it was to utilize the digital competence of its increasing number of computer-savvy candidates to ease registration processes.

How to register by yourself:

The board announced they’ve adopted the numbers 66019 code apart from the 55019 they had used since 2018 for the UTME and DE registrations and other essential services.

The board explained that the idea is to facilitate the 2022 UTME and DE registrations so that there won’t be many complaints.

The new method will also make sure that people do not find it difficult to create profiles, especially as a lot of people send requests with one USSD code.

As usual, candidates will send their National Identity Number (NIN) through any of the USSD codes for their details to be provided by the National Information Management Commission (NimC) database.

Candidates will then process to the accredited centres for biometric capturing.

The board also said they’ve perfected arrangements to get another USSD code so that they can remove anything that causes obstruction to create profiles.
