UTME 2023 registration scratch card can be be bought at designated banks like UBA, Union Bank, Zenith Bank Access Bank and JAMB offices nationwide.

For now, JAMB has not announced the the closing date for the sales of JAMB UTME 2023 Registration scratch cards nor the closing date for registration. We cannot also confirm the date of the exam for now.

Like last year, JAMB 2023 registration can only be done at the so called JAMB accredited centres, which we have argued is not in the spirit of the openness of the internet and defeating the aim of JAMB Online Registration.

JAMB UTME 2023 Registration will also require biometric scanner and like last year JAMB states that only the Digital Persona Scanner can be used for fingerprint capture in JAMB UTME 2023 Registration.

JAMB for a while used to have 3 testing options for the examination. The first is Computer Based Testing (CBT), which will allow candidates write UTME using a computer and know their result almost immediately. The second is the computer-paper testing, which will allow candidates view questions on computer but answer on paper.

The final option is the good old pencil and paper. UTME candidates are expected to choose one of the options during registration. However, in 2023 like in the last couple of years only computer based testing will be available to JAMB candidates.

Make sure to read the instructions at the registration website before commencing your registration. The JAMB UTME 2023 Brochure is built-into the portal making it easy to search for details of your Jamb UTME courses of choice. Although, we noticed that the link is not working yet.

Note about the Fingerprint Scanner

What is JAMB UTME?

JAMB is the body established by law to conduct matriculation examinations into tertiary institutions in Nigeria. JAMB used to conduct two matriculation examinations in Nigeria, the Jamb UME, a University matriculation examination, and the Jamb MPCE (also called Poly Jamb), a matriculation examination targeted at Monotechnics, Polytechnics, and Colleges of education.

Starting from 2010, JAMB started conducting only one examination. The Jamb UME and MPCE has been replaced by the Jamb UTME, which is a matriculation examination for admission into tertiary institutions. Unlike Jamb UME and MPCE results that are valid for just one year, the JAMB result will be valid for two years.

In additions candidates for Jamb UTME will select two Universities, two Polytechnics, and two Colleges of Education during their registration. Based on Jamb UTME result, candidates will be allocated to any of the six institutions selected.

The beauty of Jamb UTME is that candidates who fail to secure admission into Universities will still have the opportunity of securing admission into Polytechnics and Colleges of Education instead of waiting to write another Jamb.
