How to register for jamb 2020/2021 examination
To register for the 2020 exam, you need to create your jamb profile code.
Check the article on how to create jamb profile and get profile code.
After you you have your 10 digits jamb profile code, go to the bank to buy e-pin.
The jamb e-pin is between three thousand five hundred naira and four thousand naira (₦3,500 – ₦4000).
You can easily purchase your jamb e-pin at some banks like Polaris bank, union bank, first bank, access bank, etcetera.
Now that you have your jamb profile code and e-pin, go to an accredited cbt center for to register.
Note that not all cbt centers are accredited.
Never pay money at a computer cafe, only an accredited jamb cbt center.

You will need some important documents and things at the jamb cbt center to complete your registration.
These things are :
1. Your O level result : This can either be Waec, neco, waec gce, neco gce, etcetera.
As far as it is an O level result, you can use it.
2. Your Jamb 2020 e-pin and profile code : Make sure that you have these two important things with you.
3. Money : You will surely need money to pay for some things during the online registration .
4. Your personal email address and phone number : You need to have the email address and phone number with you .
Tips on jamb 2020/2021 registration
You need to know your jamb subject combination, the first, second, third and fourth institution.
Don’t pick a course that you don’t have any idea about.
Choose the correct subject combination for your desired course.
Make sure you do not lost any documents that you may need at the cbt center.
It may be your jamb profile code or jamb 2020 e-pin or O level result.
You don’t need any passport or photo at the jamb cbt center to register.
Details about the registration for jamb 2020

some aspirant make the mistake of not being available while the jamb 2020/2021 registration is
give their details to people to register for them and even go as far as

some of you might be asking, what should I do while am being registered?.
some aspirants are actually confused on what they should do, while 2020/2021 utme registration
is going on.
expected to be present physically, mentally and psychologically.
While your data (your surname, name and other
name, date of birth, email address, SSCE result 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 result.
Same thing goes with your name.
Don’t Make the mistake of allowing the registrar put
a wrong letter in your name.
Your email address is very technical.
Josephjoshua@gmail.com is different
mistake of one letter spoils everything.
When the email address used is not correct
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 The Mock Exam Compulsory
No, the jamb mock examination is actually not compulsory.
But I think it is necessary for jamb candidates.
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.
I Forgot My 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 I Get My 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, utme 2020 exam centre, exam date, etcetera…
You are going to get your examination centre some few weeks to the utme 2020/2021 exam date.
When the reprinting date comes out officially by the board you will get notified.
You will only be notified if you have subscribed to out newsletter.
Put that code, change your email address password and you are good to go.
When Will Jamb 2020 Registration Start
The jamb registration date for the 2020 examination has not been decided on.
If anyone tell you that jamb registration date is this or that, it is a pure lie.
Don’t be deceived, as at the time of writing this article, jamb registration date is not yet available.
You may have seen it on other websites.
But what you saw there is a mere prediction, they just predicted that date by themselves.
The registration may commence in December ending or in early January, nobody knows the exact date and time.
When Is Jamb 2020 Registration Closing [Deadline]
Since we don’t know the utme 2020 registration date, we can’t know how the strut will close.
The deadline for the registration is not also available.
But what I know is that, as soon as it has been declared by the board, I will update this article with the date.
As soon as the utme form is out, it will close few weeks after it was released.
There is nothing like late registration in jamb again, that was in the past.
The deadline can only be postponed if there is a cogent reason to postpone it.
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 change it, a day or some weeks after registration.
Just make sure you put the correct choice of institution and course.
Don’t choose a course in a institution where that course is not available or is not accredited.
All these things are very important if you want to gain admission in 2020.
Don’t choose unaccredited universities, college of education or polytechnics in Nigeria.
Can I Use The Jamb Profile Code Of Last Year
No, don’t use it to register.
You need to create a new jamb profile code.
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 you want to use is yours.
This is only for candidates that registered for jamb in 2019 and want to use the same profile code to register for the utme 2020 exam.
It is very cheap and would only cost you fifty naira only (₦50), don’t ignore this please.
I will explain to you, how you will create the profile code. In case you don’t know how to do it by yourself.
If you can do it by yourself, then no problem.
How Can I Create Email To Register For Jamb
Go to www.gmail.com to create your email address.
Just use gmail to create an email address.
I don’t really like other email providers, but gmail is the best if you want to register for jamb.
You can either use the gmail application or go to their website, it is still the same.
Use your own phone number to create the gmail account, so that it will be safer than using another person’s number.
Using your number will make it easier for you to change password, secure your account, etcetera.
How Much is The Utme 2020 Registration
The price of jamb form for 2020 cbt is between four thousand naira and six thousand naira (₦4,000 – ₦6,000).
You will pay for the registration, the e-pin and the novel (may be free).
Just make sure you have your NIN and profile code at hand before you proceed to another step.
In case you registered for the mock exam, you are going to pay ₦700 on the day of your exam.
How Can I Create My Jamb 2020 Profile Code
Just use your own phone number when you want to create this.
Just send your surname, first name and middle name to 55019.
Fifty naira (₦50) will be deducted from your credit.
You will receive a message from jamb, this message will contain your jamb 2020/2021 profile code.
Please don’t delete that message, also write the profile code somewhere.
How Can I 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.
Can I Use Awaiting Result To Register For Jamb 2020
Yes, you can use an awaiting result to register for utme 2020 exam.
But, you should note that the result must be an O level result, not A level result.
Awaiting results that are accepted for utme 2020 registration includes; Waec, neco, waec gce and neco gce.
Using any other results like Cambridge A level result will not be accepted.
Also make sure that the awaiting result to be used will come out in the same year you registered for jamb.
How Do I Correct My O Level Result Details
You can correct your o level details after the examination.
It is possible for you to change your o level result details.
In case you made a mistake with your o level result 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).
If there is a mistake in it and you decided not to change it to the correct one, it will affect your admission into your choice of institution.
That’s why I said before that you need to pay attention to every details you use for the registration.
How Can I Get NIN To Register For Utme 2020
Firstly, NIN means National Identification Number.
In case you don’t know, NIN will be used to register for the jamb exam in 2020.
There is a very good reason why jamb decided to use NIN.
In 2019, there were issues related to candidates registering for jamb more than once.
Jamb have decided to use the National Identification Number for the registration, in order to prevent double registration.
If you want to get your own NIN, go to their nearest office in your state or town.
You will fill out a form and be asked for some necessary documents before you can get it.
How Do 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.
