JAMB News Update: JAMB 2021 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
The Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) is an entrance examination which ushers students into Institutions of higher learning in Nigeria.
Though there are other means one can get into the higher institution in Nigeria, the UTME is the major route.
The examination is a yearly one and so if you fail to make it and gain admission, you will have to wait for another one year to have a resit and probably get admitted.
As a result, you need all the information you can get to make the process a smooth one for you.
Of course, that is why I’m here to help you.
Obviously, I know that in the course of your form purchase, registration and other preparations, you might encounter some challenges that would arouse some questions in you.

Now let’s take a look at some of these questions and their answers:
When is JAMB 2021 registration starting?
As earlier announced by the JAMB Registrar, JAMB registration for 2021/2022 academic session will start on the 10th of January, 2021.
This was made known during a stakeholders meeting involving the registrar of the board and CBT centres owners.
How much is JAMB form 2021?
JAMB form for 2021 UTME will be sold at N3,500 only. An additional N700 will be for registration which will be paid at the point of registration.
That is to say that the total amount for the form and registration will be N4,200.
Recall that the form was sold for N5000 in 2018 including extra N700 for registration. This year, the price has reduced and that is good news.
Nevertheless, I advise you go with at least an excess of N1000 in case of any other miscellaneous expense.
Where can I register for JAMB 2021?
You are strongly advised to do your registration in an accredited JAMB CBT centre.
They are the only ones who have all it takes to register you successfully.
JAMB had warned candidates against patronizing illegal registration centres as any candidate who does so is at his/her own risk.
Before now, any cyber café can register candidates but JAMB has stopped it. Instead, only accredited centres are licensed to register candidates.
Check the list of official CBT centres nationwide state by state here. The list is in both text and pdf formats. Make use of the one most convenient for you.
Where can I buy JAMB Form 2021
The JAMB form can be purchased in any recognized Nigerian Bank, accredited CBT centres, JAMB state offices and NIPOST.

When is JAMB Registration Closing Date for 2021?
The registration process is expected to last for six weeks starting from 10th January according to JAMB. So by my calculation, the closing date for JAMB registration will be on 21st February, 2021.
The registration may be extended but you are advised to beat the deadline.
