The JAMB UTME 2015 cards will soon be available at approved selling outlets nationwide - designated banks, NIPOST offices and JAMB offices nationwide. The date for the JAMB UTME exam 2015 is to be announced at a later date by the board.

In the previous 2014 exam, JAMB had asked candidates to choose one of three options to write their exams in. The options were Paper and Pencil Test (PPT), Dual Computer Paper Test (DCPT) and the Computer Based Test (CBT). See

Did you sit for the previous 2014 JAMB exam? If you did, please note that supplying your Last Year (UTME 2015) Registration Number to JAMB makes your registration faster.

All candidates should visit the 2015 UTME e-portal at
http://www.jamb.org.ng/unifiedtme/. However, to access the JAMB/UTME portal for e-registration, you need a scratch card which is being sold for N4,000 at the approved selling outlets nationwide - designated banks, Post offices and JAMB offices nationwide.

The JAMB UTME Scratch card contains a serial number and PIN, two vital information you require for your UTME e-registration. You also need to finger-print. Please see information below for more.
UTME 2014 Biometrics: Only DIGITAL PERSONA Scanners Allowed
In addition to the information above, UTME 2015 registration will also require a finger print scanner like in recent past years. However, JAMB has made it clear that for the 2015 UTME Biometrics, only DIGITAL PERSONA scanners will be allowed for finger prints capture. Candidates wishing to register for the 2015 JAMB Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) should take note of this information.

The biometric scanner (finger print reader) will be used to capture the left and right thumbs of the candidates. Candidates are advised to make sure an approved fingerprint reader is available on the computer they intend using for their JAMB UTME 2015 registration as their finger print (left and right thumb) will be read before they can sign-up for a UTME account, which is the first step in the registration process.

Finally, be informed that JAMB accredited registration centers all over Nigeria have been mandated NOT to charge more than N700 from candidates. This amount includes printing of 2 copies of your e-slip. According to a statement on the official JAMB website:
Were you charged above Seven Hundred Naira (NRN 700.00) for registration including printing of two copies of your e-Slip?
