How To Gain Admission With Jamb 2021/2022 No Matter What

Like I always say, many candidates fail to secure admission to.study their desired course. This is not always because they scored low in Jamb or are not connected; but because they don’t know how to gain admission by all means.

You can actually gain admission no matter your Jamb 2021 score. Do you want to know the reasons why you may not gain admission and how to overcome it? See it here.

Is It Jamb Or School That Offers Admission (Jamb Date)

This is one question that took me years to answer. To some, it is Jamb that gives admission. Others believe that it is school that offers admission. If I may ask you, is it the institutions or Jamb that offers admission? The answer is both.

The school to a large extent compiles the name of those they have admitted. Then send the names to Jamb to be upload in Jamb caps. Now, it is the duty of Jamb to offer admission letter to all admitted candidates. Jamb regulates the admission process.

How To Check Your Jamb 2021 Results

When Is Jamb 2021/2022 Registration Closing Date [Deadline]

Since we don’t know the utme 2021 registration date, we can’t know when the form 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 2021.

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 in 2021.

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 2020 and want to use the same profile code to register for the utme 2021 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 Exam 2021

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.

I won’t advise you to use aol, yandex, yahoo, etcetera for JAMB utme registration process.

JAMB 2021 Candidates Are To Get NIN

As Jamb 2021 registration begins, the Joint Admission and Matriculation board (JAMB) has announced that all candidates who wish to sit for Jamb 2021 should go and get NIN. NIN Stands for National Identification Number.

The reason to get Jamb National Identification Number (JAMB NIN) is to ensure the fingerprint/biometric and other details of a candidate are captured to check examination Malpractice.

You may be wondering, how do I apply for NIN for Jamb 2021 Registration and Examination? Check it out in the recommended article below..
