JAMB Extends 2023 UTME Registration By 7 Days

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

A press statement by Board’s Head, Public Affairs and Protocol, Dr Fabian Benjamin, said with the extension, the sale of ePINs would end on Monday, February 20, 2023, while the UTME registration ends on Wednesday, February 22, 2023.

Recall that in line with the Board’s 2023 Schedule of Activities as earlier released, the closing date for the sale of both the ePINs and the 2023 UTME application documents was initially slated for Tuesday, February 14, 2023.

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

The statement reads: “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.

“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 especially when the extant challenges are not of their own making.”
